Police Station Advice and Assistance

We can represent you at the Police Station, with no cost to you, under the Police Duty Scheme. You are not obliged to use the allocated Duty Solicitor and are entitled to request your own solicitor. You can ask for your own Solicitor and we can represent you under the Police Duty Scheme.

We can advise on the criminal offence you are charged with and possible sentences, whether you have a defence or alibi, the strength of the police evidence, your rights and options during the police interview such as whether you should give a full explanation or remain silent and the consequences of each. 

If you confirm to the Custody Officer that you would like Symes Bains Broomer to represent you they will contact us, even outside of our standard hours, to see if we can attend the interview with you.
