In trouble with the police? Dealing with an interview

We understand being interviewed by the police can be intimidating and where possible you should contact your lawyer to attend with you.

If for some reason this is not possible, it is advisable you exercise your right to remain silent.

There are some exceptions to remaining silent, such as providing your name and address or, in particular circumstances naming the driver of a motor vehicle,

However in general, making “no comment’ is your best option.

In trouble with the police? I’ve been charged!

Contrary to what you might hear at the supermarket or your local sporting club, opting for “No Comment’ does not imply guilt but rather protects your rights against criminal prosecution.

If, after your interview, police do charge you with a crime, we can help you understand the charges and advise you on what to do.

We can assist you in accessing the evidence against you and preparing your case for court.

We can also assist you in obtaining bail where necessary.

Being interviewed by police or going to court can be stressful and if you find yourself in this position it is best you seek our advice to arrange for our firm to stand with you every step of the way.
