Police Station Consultations

Having the Police knock at the door is a distressing and disorienting experience. Often, people say things in the heat of the moment that they cannot explain later. For many years the police used this to their advantage to elicit confessions from suspects during questioning.

However, following the Supreme Court’s decision in the ‘Cadder’ case, all persons detained or arrested by the police now have the right to consult a solicitor before and during their interview.

Know your rights – call your solicitor

This consultation can take the form of a telephone conversation if the solicitor is unable to attend the station at which you are being detained.

MJS are happy to take these calls and advise you of your rights throughout the process of being interviewed. It’s important you are fully informed of your eights at every stage and that you do not waive your right to legal assistance. In many cases, a person who has misspoken at police station has come to regret it at trial. We’ll try to prevent this to ensure that you get a fair trial.
