Help If Arrested

What to do if Arrested.

If you are arrested don't comment until a solicitor is present. If arrested, you have a right to a phone call. Ring a solicitor or a friend to get you a solicitor. If no-one can be contacted, do not worry, a 'free' duty solicitor will be available (you can change to your own solicitor later). To find a solicitor click here.

Keep a mental note of everything that has happened & tell your solicitor at the first opportunity you have.

Once the initial proceedings are over, if you are charged with 'possession with intent', instruct your solicitor to consider an expert report.

Depending on the type of drugs you were charged with having in your possession, we will then consider the evidence & prepare a report that may be used by the barrister conducting your defence. It is our duty as an expert witness to provide honest opinions based on the evidence. If served, the report will also be seen by the prosecution and judge, and form the basis for oral evidence and cross-examination during any trial.

If you are found in possession of more than a few days supply, or paraphernalia such as scales, you may be charged with possession with intent to supply. Depending on individual cases, this intent to supply may later be dropped or a lesser plea accepted.

Police valuations in some areas may seem unrealistically high. With up to date research statistics we can produce realistic valuations, based on actual street prices all over the U.K
