Legal help and support when life falls into crisis.
At Caseys Solicitors, we understand that to be interviewed by the Police can be a distressing and intimidating experience.
We provide advice in criminal defence when you need it most, from police stations, through to Magistrates’, and Crown Court. Caseys Solicitors provide empathetic, knowledgeable advice and have a strong will to achieve the best results for our clients.
If you are arrested, you should ask for a legal representative to be contacted on your behalf. This service is free to everyone and is not means tested. Caseys Solicitors provide a 24/7 access service for police station representation.
We are members of the Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme and are contracted by the Legal Aid Agency. This means that we can offer free legal advice and representation under the “Legal Aid” scheme to all that are eligible.
We provide free advice and assistance at police stations.
Every person detained for questioning at a police station is entitled to free and independent legal advice, regardless of means and ability to pay. We offer an emergency callout system 365 days of the year 24 hours a day.
The basis of any alleged criminal offence is set out at the police station. What happens at the police station is of vital importance to the case overall. It is therefore essential to have specialist legal advice to assist you at this crucial stage of the criminal process. Our role is to protect and advance the legal rights of the defendant. Our specialist solicitors and accredited legal representatives have years of experience in representing clients at police stations.
From the point of being instructed to representing our clients in court we have a dedicated team working hard on your case.
Whilst we have to provide a faithful performance of what we are instructed to do, so far as the law permits, we must also serve the interests of justice as well as the rights and liberties of our clients. It is our duty not only to plead our clients’ cause, but to also be their advisor. Our solicitors have much experience of advocacy in the Courts and are proud of our continued success to provide the best outcome for our clients.
