Products & Services

Police Station

If you are arrested on suspicion of involvement in an offence, you need to know you can rely on good legal advice, delivered by highly qualified and experienced lawyers in whom you can trust. We are always on hand to help you at this difficult time; our solicitors and legal representatives are all experts in their field and can be with you in a very short time, 24 hours a day. We will never delay your time in the police station, and it is always in your best interests to have legal advice before any interview.


Road Traffic

We regularly deal with all manner of driving offences: anything from causing death by dangerous driving, to driving whilst using a mobile phone.

If the offence you face is punishable with imprisonment, or there are some other special circumstances about you or the offence, and you qualify financially, then you may be able to qualify for legal aid for us to represent you at Court.

However, there are lots of road traffic matters which would not qualify for legal aid because they are not deemed serious enough. For example, speeding matters or having no insurance or driving whilst using a mobile telephone would not ordinarily attract legal aid funding. However, the effects of receiving obligatory points on your licence could be devastating for your insurance policy or, indeed, if you already have points could lead to a disqualification. Also, most driving offences can carry discretionary disqualification.

Legal aid is also known as public funding and it means that the government will pay for your legal expenses. EVERYONE at the Police Station is entitled to a FREE advice no matter what the offence, what you earn whether you are there voluntarily or having been in custody. If you are interviewed at the Job Centre, at your house or anywhere else it is likely you will be covered under legal aid but please contact us if you are unsure and one of our friendly members of staff will be happy to assist you.
