Police and other investigations

Don’t ask for Duty ask for Chris Stevenson Solicitors!

Our Police Stations are not open on a 09:00-17:00pm basis and neither are we. We are THERE for YOU 24/7 whenever you require advice in the Police Station.

People don’t always appreciate the importance of what they do or do not say in an interview until it is TOO LATE.

The responses to the question’s you are asked DEFINE the outcome of the investigation or any subsequent case against you.

Chris Stevenson Solicitors have dealt with investigations involving the POLICE, HMRC, DWP, RSPCA and more. We have travelled all over the country to advise and assist client’s, both in custody and for voluntary interviews.

If you are arrested by the police ask the Chris Stevenson Solicitors be contacted immediately. Alternatively if you are to be interviewed as a volunteer for a PACE 9 interview contact us in advance so that we can attend and advise you.

Remember ADVICE in an investigation by the police is FREE, and therefore cost’s you nothing. Ask for us BEFORE you are INTERVIEWED don’t regret leaving it TOO LATE

Police representation is free and available at no cost to you.

Given relatively recent changes to the law surrounding bail, fewer people are being arrested and more and more people are being interviewed voluntarily. This does not change anything as far as legal aid is concerned, in that you are still entitled to FREE and INDEPENDENT legal advice, and a solicitor from Chris Stevenson Solicitors can attend to advise and support you.It does not matter whether this interview is at the police station or at another location, for example your home address, we can attend to advise free of charge and regardless of means.
We will not keep you waiting! If you require legal advice at the Police Station, ensure that as soon as you arrive, insist that we are contacted by the police.We will then contact the police, speak with you and do everything we can to try arrange for your case to be dealt with as quickly as possible, so we will not keep you waiting. You are entitled to a Solicitor, free of charge, including for a voluntarily interview whether that be by the roadside, at your house or at the police station.
We would say that given legal advice is free, and how important the interview stage of an investigation, it would be a mistake not to have legal representation in an interview when you are being investigated.If you were interviewed by the police without a solicitor, we can still take your case on thereafter, so do not hesitate to contact us if you did not have a solicitor in the police station and you require representation.
Identification procedures often form part of a police investigation.We can attend, free of charge, to ensure that the Identification procedure is done fairly. This means we can help you select the participants of the parade and also ensure any issues with the parade are dealt with before it gets shown to a witness.We can also attend the witness viewing, and ensure that the proper procedures are observed by the police when it comes to the witness attending to view the ID parade. We can then let you know immediately as to whether you have been identified as being involved in the alleged offence for which you are being investigated.
