I, together with 9 million others sat down to watch the new series of Silk on the television recently.

Much as I appreciate some artistic licence, the sight of Martha Costello QC representing a client at the police station was laughable! Why? Well because barristers are not trained to represent clients at the police station. Only people with police station accreditation can do that and those people are Duty Solicitors and Accredited Police Station Advisers.

These people are trained to deal with the very specific problems which may arise in police stations relating to treatment of those arrested, their rights during their detention and rights to legal representation during their time in custody and during police interview. These are the people with the expertise to properly protect your interests at the police station not a Barrister who is trained primarily to deal only with appearing in Court.

At Ringrose law we have solicitors and accredited police station advisers available at all of our offices and we can represent clients in custody free of charge regardless of your means. So remember if you find yourself in police custody facing a police interview any time of the day or night call Ringrose Law.
