Police Station Interview
Our team of experienced criminal defence lawyers have significant experience and a background in representing hundreds of clients for all manner of criminal offences, from murder through to theft. This significant experience of serious crime places them in an excellent positon to represent all manner of driving offences. Our Road Traffic Offence Solicitors deal with all driving offences at the police station from death by dangerous driving through to careless driving.
Road Traffic Offences do not usually require you to attend the Police Station for an interview under caution, as they are usually dealt with by a Postal Requisition (Court Summons).
If you are suspected of Drink Driving and subsequently fail the roadside breath test, you will be taken to the Police Station to provide a specimen of breath, the police will not usually interview you following the sample.
However, if you are being investigated for offences such as death by dangerous driving, death by careless driving or dangerous driving the police should provide you with an opportunity to give an account, and as such will ask you to attend the police station for an interview under caution.
The police station interview is a crucial part of a case and sets the foundation of any criminal case, therefore you should not go into a police interview without an experienced solicitor to ensure you are properly advised and represented throughout the police interview.
Whether you answer police questions or exercise your right to silence (no comment) can make the difference between a case being discontinued at the police investigation stage or being charged with a criminal offence.
You will be entitled to free legal advice at the police station from the duty solicitor scheme, however the person appointed to represent you under the duty solicitor scheme may not be a qualified solicitor and will be a general criminal practitioner, as opposed to an expert in Road Traffic Law and procedure. Furthermore, the vast majority of road traffic offences do not qualify for Legal Aid (Public Funding) once a case reaches the Magistrates Court.
We charge privately for legal representation at the police station. Paying for legal representation in the police station is often much cheaper that paying for a Solicitor to represent you at Court.
