PRACTICE AREAS

Police Interviews

The law of detention and arrest changed significantly in Scotland with the coming into force of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 on 25th January 2018. It is now crucial that you or a loved one obtains sound legal advice from a specialist criminal defence lawyer before speaking to the police. We regularly attend Clydebank Police Station and other police stations in Glasgow and throughout Scotland on behalf of our clients.

Being in a police station can be very intimidating, especially if you have never been there before or had any previous dealings with the police. We are very experienced at dealing with the police on behalf of our clients. We can help and protect you and ensure that your rights are not compromised. We provide 24 hour support, 365 days a year. What you say during a police interview could make a huge difference to what ultimately happens to you.

Call our 24 hr helpline 07773312883 if you are in trouble or the police want to speak to you.
