We hold a legal aid contract with the government but we are entirely independent of the police and the courts. We will send only specially qualified solicitors to deal with your interview at the police station.
We advise you freely and independently and our advice is intended to allow you to make the best decisions in your case. it is important to note that your instructions to us and our advice to you is completely confidential and will not be disclosed to any third parties unless you request for us to do so and it helps your case.

At Harris Solicitors our solicitors will attend upon you day or night. We really do not mind waking up in the middle of the night to either advise you on the phone or attend at the police station. This is our job and we love it and ensure that you have the best representation.
It is one of your rights as part of the PACE Act to have a solicitor present. This does not mean that you are guilty, it means you get the best possible advice to ensure you make the right decision.
It will be unlikely that you will have knowledge about the Police powers and procedures, the remand act or the Court procedures so why not give us a call at Harris Solicitors so we can explain all this to you. It is free and independent
As we have mentioned above choosing to have a solicitor does not make you look guilty to the police.
If you have not done anything wrong, you might still struggle to explain yourself in the pressure of a police interview. Our presence and advice will help with that pressure because at Harris Solicitors we love what we do so much that criminal defence is all what we do and we do not cross contaminate this with any other area of law.
It is important to note that you are being interviewed because the police suspect your involvement in a criminal offence. The outcome of the quick chat may be a caution or a charge for a serious offence with far reaching serious consequences
The length of time you are detained at the police station is a matter for the police. Harris Solicitors do not keep either you or the officers waiting either during office hours or out of office hours. Harris Solicitors only have fully accredited police station representatives and solicitors who will attend at the police station for you.
At Harris Solicitors we know that you will want to be released from the police station as soon as possible. We will ensure we do all we can to make sure we ensure this is done and will not delay.
The police interview is extremely important as it is the backbone of the case against you. The decision to either answer questions or to exercise your right to remain silent is very important. It will have an impact on the trial and will certainly be mentioned at the trial. It is likely to help you if you have given thoughtful and considered responses to police questioning having had an opportunity to discuss the evidence first.
Harris Solicitors have dedicated and accredited representatives who will attend at the police station for you. They will be important in negotiations for many reasons. For example, it might be argued that there is insufficient evidence to charge you with an offence ensuring that the representative makes appropriate representations on your behalf. The police may want to keep you for court to seek a remand into custody. We can suggest bail conditions on your behalf at the police station. We are more than happy to attend at the police station for any type of case.
We get disclosure from the police prior to your interview. This is very important because if you are to be interviewed on your own you will not receive such disclosure. We can advise you on the evidence and the right course of action for the interview. This is very important considering how important the case is and the distinction between either being charged with an offence or leaving the police station without any charges. It is important to know your rights.
If you require advice and assistance at the police station no matter where you are Harris Solicitors are here to help. Please call us on 01274 392177 or 07872835267 07590289197
