station AttendancePOLICE STATION ATTENDANCE

From March 2016, anyone finding themselves in police custody will have the right to advice from a solicitor. In many cases this will be met by the legal aid fund. The most important thing to remember is to insist that the police contact Moir and Sweeney Litigation any time that you find yourself in police custody.

If the police contact you asking you to attend for interview, you should contact us first and we will arrange to attend the interview with you once we have offered you professional advice. We would always advise against waiving your right to a solicitor if you are facing an interview about any criminal matter.

The police have the right to detain you for a period of 12 hours whilst they investigate the allegation against you. This can be extended to 24 hours in exceptional circumstances. It is therefore essential that you have the police contact Moir and Sweeney Litigation when the police offer you access to a solicitor.

The police interview is now considered to be part of your trial process and accordingly it is vital that you contact us before the police interview you. We would never advise anyone to allow themselves to be interviewed by the police without seeking legal advice, no matter what the allegation is.
