We give those accused of a crime a voice, regardless of their past, their background or the accusation levelled against them.

Police Investigation

It is crucial that you receive advice and assistance at the Police Station if you are under investigation. This is either when you are invited to attend as a volunteer for an interview or under arrest.

Effective pre-charge advice and representation makes a real difference. In practice, access to expert opinion and quality written representations can often lead to an informal disposal or a decision to take no action at all. If you have been arrested, are being investigated, or you are about to be investigated, then please contact us for a confidential discussion. 

To find out how we can help you, call us today on 01332 348 484 or on our 24hr helpline 07831 442 334
