What to do if you are accused of a crime

If you have been accused of committing any criminal offence, regardless of the circumstances, it is essential that you seek legal advice without delay to ensure you are protected from the outset and that, where possible, your case can be dealt with out of court. Your lawyer will inform you of your rights, explain the process and advise you on the best approach to take.
It is important to note that you do not have to wait until you are charged before you can get legal advice. You have a right to see a solicitor as soon as possible after you are arrested and held in custody. Your lawyer will give you immediate advice over the phone or in person. You are also legally entitled to have your solicitor present during police interviews and to have a private meeting with them at any time.

The Westcourts approach

We take a client focussed approach when dealing with cases and offer you our expert advice whilst representing your position at every stage. We will always provide an honest assessment of your case and we will be upfront with you about how your case is likely to progress – even where this will involve a difficult discussion. This is what sets us apart from other firms.
We will never ask you to plead guilty to something you have not done to achieve a convenient outcome; we will always take your case to trial where you maintain your innocence. Westcourts are your trusted criminal defence firm; we are here to help and prepare you for every eventuality.
