Police Station Advice

All legal advice that Fosters provide following your arrest or voluntary attendance at a police station is free to our clients and our team are available to assist you 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Being interviewed is an extremely pressurised and stressful experience. The way you approach that interview is so important that it can be instrumental in the way your case can progress. You can be assured that when you are represented by a member of our team that you are receiving the best advice and ultimately making the right decisions at such a crucial stage of any investigation.

To access the free expert advice we provide, all you need to do, if under arrest, is inform the police that you wish to be represented by Fosters and arrangements will be made for us to attend and assist you. Or, alternatively, if the police invite you to attend an interview on a voluntary basis simply call our team in advance of that interview and we will make the arrangements to attend to represent you.


It may be that you are required to go to Court. Fosters can help you find your way through this process, and Legal Aid may be available.

It is important you receive the correct advice as to whether you should plead Guilty or Not Guilty, as how the case progresses and the outcomes are all affected by the decisions you make.

We can offer clear legal advice on the following:

  • Whether arrest or detention is likely or was lawful;
  • Whether evidence obtained by the police was done so lawfully;
  • Whether that evidence crosses the threshold for a prosecution;
  • If alternative charges should have been considered;
  • If a prosecution can be said to be in the public interest;
  • Test the reliability and admissibility of the evidence;
  • Advice on the strength of the prosecution case, and the defences available or raised.

Our Defence experts are experienced in all areas of Criminal Defence work. We will provide the advice you need, and conduct the hearings on your behalf, achieving the best result possible. We have access to nationally recognised experts if your case surrounds issues of a medical, forensic or other scientific nature.
