Free Independent Advice

Everybody, regardless of their financial situation, has the right to free and independent legal advice at the police station. This is the case whether you have been arrested or if you are attending voluntarily for a police interview. 

If your case progresses to the Magistrates or Crown Court, we can advise on your funding options and guide you through your legal aid application.

We have also complied a list of the questions we are most frequently asked. Here are the top 3 questions. 

I've been arrested - what do I do?

It is your legal right to be offered FREE legal advice from a solicitor. As soon as you arrive at the Police Station you should ask the Custody Sergeant to contact Purcell Parker Solicitors in order that we can attend to represent you.  One of our solicitors or experienced accredited Police Station representatives is available 24 hours a day.

I have been charged with an offence - what do I do now?

Contact Purcell Parker Solicitors as soon as possible to let us know the time and date you are to appear at Court and to arrange an appointment to see us for an initial discussion.

Do I have to pay for you to represent me?

Although you are entitled to free legal advice at the Police Station regardless of means, legal aid for representation at Court will depend on the seriousness of the offence and your means.  We will be able to advise you as to whether you would be eligible for legal aid.
