Police Station Advice, Assistance & Second Opinions in West Sussex

So why do you need an expert? Well, the answer is simple. The police are human and can make mistakes like anyone can. You want to be sure there is someone there to fight your corner.

Any investigations conducted by the police can cause immense stress and concern. This is particularly true when you have done nothing wrong. These investigations can take an awfully long time, many months even, and you want to be sure that throughout this time someone is there to help you, advise you and guide you on what to do, when and where.

It is hard for anyone to deal with unfounded and unfair accusations. Sadly, the police are limited in their ability to robustly investigate matters. They are limited in numbers and work under a great deal of pressure, so you need to be sure you have a defence team from the start.

An experienced defence team will assist you to actively investigate the matter and assist the police in obtaining the truth. Due to constant police cuts and the public purse being tightened, we increasingly see people labelled as defendants and under investigation for a considerable amount of time.

Why Pay For Assistance?

So, what can we do and why pay privately? Well, MJR Solicitors can be there for you to assist in any way you want. We can quote for individual investigations and base this on your wants and needs. You are purchasing our expertise and time.

Of course, at the police station, you have the right to independent legal advice. However, that advice is whilst you are there. There is no further funding or assistance for investigating and forwarding your case.

Therefore, it is imperative that you appoint a solicitor with a private retainer. You will then receive a personal bespoke service tailored to your complete requirements. Every case is unique and needs to be treated as such.

Experts In Criminal Law

Here at MJR Solicitors, we are experts in Criminal Law with over 35 years’ experience. We are highly experienced and want to help you and be unrestricted in the help we offer.

If you are wrongly accused of an offence, let us help you. Let us put it right in a timely fashion. You are in control of who you wish to instruct. so meet our team and choose who you want and the service you require.

We will offer you a completely tailored bespoke approach based on your instructions and circumstances. One size does not fit all. You need the best and we are the best!

I Am Just Going To Use The Duty, It's Free!

That’s fine and we understand that not everyone can afford legal advice and assistance. However, it is important to note, all quotes are unique and bespoke to you.

Legal aid offers a “one size fits all” approach. Your solicitor, if being paid under the Duty scheme, will be paid the same whether he is dealing with a serious offence or minor matter. They are only paid to assist at the police station, so they cannot investigate your matter. Because of this, it is very unlikely they will be able to spend any time with you after the police station.

Also, at the police station, when you ask for advice, you can never be sure who will assist you. This may not be a solicitor or it may not even be an expert in the area of law with which you are being investigated.

I Did Nothing Wrong, Why Do I Need A Solicitor?

In this case, you definitely need a solicitor. As we have said above, mistakes occur and for some reason you are being interviewed, which could be used at a trial at a later date.

You need someone to be there. Someone to ensure you accurately put forward the facts in a precise way. We will attend with you, get all the evidence from the police and take our time reviewing this with you in private before you are interviewed. This would not be time restricted; we would take as long as we require to ensure you are completely happy to proceed. This is important and could alter your life, so make sure you have us with you to ensure any alteration is for the better!

I’ve Already Been Interviewed? Is It Too Late?

Even if you have already been interviewed, you still need a solicitor by your side. You want to ensure all circumstances of the case are actively investigated in a timely manner, and you may also need assistance with draconian bail conditions which are affecting your ability to work or visit loved ones.

MJR Solicitors can help with all of this. Talk to us today and let us ease the pressure and take the strain. We help people in this situation every day, so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

Second Opinions

As with any trade, it never hurts to get a second opinion. We offer this service for peace of mind to clients. You may have already been interviewed and what to check what you have been told. Well, we can help.

We offer a bespoke discrete service to give you advice and assistance. Even if you are happy with your current representative, it doesn’t hurt to check that they are giving you sound advice.

We won't just review what you have already been told. We will take the details from you about your case and offer our views and opinions on how to progress the matter efficiently and effectively. You can then compare this to what you have already been told, or, you may wish to check some specific details on what you have already been told.

We are more than happy to verify facts that are law specific to your case, as and when you need it. We understand that you are not in the legal profession, so you may just need us to confirm that the service you are already receiving is on the right track. MJR Solicitors can help any way you need, so get in touch today.
