What happens if I get arrested?

What happens from the moment you are arrested can be vital in determining the outcome of the case and so we would strongly advise anyone who is arrested to seek the help of our experienced duty solicitors.

Once arrested it will generally be because the police wish to question you in relation to your suspected involvement in a criminal offence. By having legal representation at the police station you can ensure that your representative protects your legal rights and advises you on the strength of any potential case against you from an early stage.

The things you say and do from the moment you are arrested and cautioned can potentially be noted by a police officer and used against you as evidence if your case is taken to court.

By having a solicitor at the police station you can ensure that any potential defence you may have is raised from the outset. This could avoid an adverse inference being drawn against you if your case is taken to court.

Remember JFH Law’s advice and assistance at the police station is free and independent. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
