  • We understand that anyone interviewed at a police station will experience stress and worry. 
  • Knowing your rights and how you should respond to police questioning is vital.
  • The desire to go to the police station and tell your story should be considered carefully; it is not always the best strategy.
  • We will explain your rights and advise you of the options open to you.
  • We will ensure that your rights are protected. 
  • We will seek to secure your release at the earliest opportunity.

 

Legal Aid

You are entitled to free legal advice at the police station if you are arrested and for the duration of your case through the Magistrates' court and Supreme Court if you are unable to pay privately. Your ability to pay will be assessed by the Legal Aid Office.

Paying Privately

Not all lawyers are attracted to taking cases funded by legal aid. You may have to remain in custody longer until you can find representation; however you will almost certainly secure a lawyer early if you are paying privately.

We will give you a clear indication of the likely fees involved in managing your case.
