Brilliant Legal Representation

“I was recently represented by Kang & Co Solicitors for a drink driving charge. From the initial telephone call it was clear that Kang & Co were experts in this field. They provided sound advice and diligently guided me through the process leading up to the court case. Through their legal representation I was able to avoid a community order and receive the best possible outcome for my case .”

Ollie, TrustPilot

Flawless Legal Help

“They had very little time to go ahead with getting all valid documents needed for my case, they were extremely efficient and great at calming me and keeping me updated with my case and it’s details with interviews and courtrooms to appear in, overall great experience with kang and co, I came out with a 2 year suspended sentence instead of a 1 year custodial sentence for GBH without intent. I now get to spend the time caring for my nan and helping with my family’s needs.”

If you are due to attend the police station, it’s crucial that you act fast and instruct an experienced motoring law solicitor to represent and safeguard your legal rights at the police station.

You should not use or attempt to use the information contained within this page to represent yourself at the police station, you should instruct a suitably qualified motoring solicitor or ask for the Legal Aid duty solicitor at the police station.

The Police Station Interview

A Police Officer has the right interview a person he thinks useful information can be obtained from, when investigating a potential criminal offence. A person’s decision not to answer police questions (no comment) or unwillingness to go into an interview does not change the right to interview.

At the commencement of the police station interview, the interview is recorded on a digital disk and the police officer will caution the suspect, the caution is then explained to the suspect.

If the police have enough evidence to charge a suspect without an interview, then in such circumstances an interview may not take place, as the police do not require any further evidence. An example of this is usually Drink Driving, as evidence from the intoxilyzer machine will usually be sufficient to authorise a Drink Driving charge, therefore the police may not deem it necessary to conduct a police interview.

The Options Available During the Police Interview

In a police interview, a suspect can progress in the following manner:

  • Provide a ‘no comment’ interview (exercise their right to silence)
  • Answer some police questions
  • Answer all police questions
  • Make a prepared statement

The course of action to take is individual and a ‘one size fits all’ approach is not appropriate. It is crucial that the correct decision is made at the police interview so that the correct foundation can be created for the case, should the case progress to trial. It is crucial that you instruct a solicitor to represent you at the police station as your lawyer will be best placed on the correct course of action to take.

Adverse Inferences From a ‘No Comment’ Interview

A suspect is entailed to remain silent during a police interview or answer ‘no comment’ however, the is an important condition attached to remaining silent, this is also known as an ‘adverse inference’

The Court could draw an adverse inference if a suspect is being questioned by the police and the suspect does not mention a fact which he relies upon in his defence (because the suspect exercised their right to silence) and it was in the circumstances existing at the time reasonable for the suspect to have mentioned the fact when questioned.

An example of this would be a person being interviewed for dangerous driving, that person provides a ‘no comment’ interview and at trial raises a defence of mistaken identity. The Court is less likely to believe the defence, as such a crucial point would have been within the knowledge of the suspect during the interview, and therefore the defence should have been place on record at the police interview.

Therefore, in certain circumstances providing a ‘no comment’ interview can be detrimental if the matter progresses to trial and a defence is raised at later stage.

Advantages of Answering ‘No Comment’

The clear advantage of not answering police questions during an interview is that a suspect would not add strength to the prosecution case, which in certain circumstances may leave the prosecution with insufficient evidence to charge a suspect with a criminal offence. However, taking this course of action may result in an adverse inference and may weaken a defence if the matter progresses to trial.

Innocent Explanation for Remaining Silent

An adverse inference for remaining silent will not arise at Court, if an innocent explanation for remaining silent can be given to the Court.

The innocent explanation must be supported by admissible evidence and this would usually be recorded onto the custody record at the time of the interview via submissions made by the solicitor at the police station.

Example of innocent explanations for remaining silent are assessed on a case by case basis however, the Court is unlikely to draw an adverse inference if the police failed to disclose adequate information about the case to the solicitor which may result in the solicitor being unable to give appropriate advice to the suspect

The work our lawyers carry out at the police station is the first stage of any criminal case, and for that reason it is crucial that the correct foundation is in place to protect and safeguard our clients.

Our team of expert lawyers are operate out of offices in Birmingham, London and Milton Keynes and we represent clients at police station nationwide.

The preparation on my case was second to none, this began from the moment I contacted Manjinder Kang and his team, and they were very proactive to look into my case ASAP. The quality of representation in Court at Court was excellent, I was assigned with a Barrister, and someone who had extensive experience in this field. The outcome of your case 6 points, although I was expecting a ban as minimum.

Mr Singh

Very helpful and informative. They explain things in plain English to help you understand the legal process. I got caught up in a problem and felt I was way outside my comfort zone, but everyone on the team at Kang & Co were excellent at making me feel more at ease.

An exceedingly competent, professional and dedicated practice lead from the front by Manjinder Kang. In my experience, it is often very difficult to find a professional organisation that truly delivers on their promise of expertise,quality of service, compassion and dedication to their client. I would not hesitate in recommending Kang & Co Solicitors.

Mr C. Pilkington

My licence was going to be revoked and i was considering representing myself in Court and a family member recommended contacting Kang & Co. I then weighed up using a specialist firm or representing myself and made the right choice. Chris Hopkins who represented me in court was very supportive and professional. He done his utmost to get me the best outcome and delivered.

Matthew Bacon

I was summonsed for a speeding offence on the M6 toll where the speed recorded was essentially an automatic disqualification. I pleaded guilty and engaged the services of Kang and Co to plead my case not to be disqualified from driving. My outcome was positive and I retained my licence. I would recommend Kang and Co to anyone who has the need for Legal Representation.

Amanda Collier

Mr Kang who met with me and Mr Wheeler who represented me in court were brilliant, could not have survived the experience without them! Not sure how anyone could, as I, approach an experience like this was for me, a first time appearance in court without seeking help, advice and representation from a lawyer/s such as these two great examples.

Francis Drew

I arranged for my nephew to see Mr Kang as he was facing a driving ban after getting 12 points in three years. Mr Kang gave my nephew detailed advice on obtaining the necessary evidence for his court case. Mr Shocker represented him at the magistrates court and instead of being banned he received a modest fine. All within a week or two!

Howard Jacobs

 

An extremely professional service – full and honest appraisal of situation and a positive outcome. Highly recommend!

Sheila Ni Conchobhair

Kang and Co were exceptional in helping me retain my licence after an unfair dash-cam case was brought against me. I was faced with 6 point, a ban and £800 fine, and I received none of these. Win, win, win! Very happy with them.

On my court date I was assured by a great barrister everything would be done in my best interests and it was – we got the result I needed. I was so impressed by the swiftness of this company really hassle free – kept up to date with everything.

Karan

We required advice and representation at a Public Inquiry with the Birmingham Traffic Commissioner and appointed Manjinder of Kang & Co after reading an article that he had published on Transport online. He achieved the best possible outcome for us at the Inquiry – our license was not revoked and our fleet was not curtailed.

Jodie Wood

The combination of hard work, expertise and commitment to achieve the best possible result ended up in my acquittal at trial. I believe instructing Kang & Co. at the time that I did made all of the difference in securing a successful outcome. I would definitely recommend Kang and Co. if you need legal representation.

Shahan Mir

Anything I didn’t understand was explained to me. They went out of their way with very short notice for the work I required.

Manjinder Kang was absolutely fantastic and i could not have had better representation during my case. I have already recommended his firm to all my contacts for any issues relating to road transport law.
