Why do I need a solicitor at the police station?

Most people do not fully understand their rights or how to approach questioning. For many this will be the first involvement with law enforcement. Without expert assistance, something could be said or done that negatively affects your case. They will guide you through the process and make sure you understand everything. They will guide you to making decisions about if you should or should not answer questions. How to answer them is also important. Your solicitor will also be able to make representations to the police that may well be crucial in the outcome of the case.
