Police Station Defence

Whiterose Blackmans

Criminal Defence Experts In Leeds

Police Cautions, Arrested by the Police, Remanded in Custody

Police cautions are handed out by the Police in situations where a minor offence has been committed that does not warrant a full prosecution.

If you have been arrested by Police and remanded in Police custody then it is important that a legal representative is available to help you.

A solicitor at Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP is able to provide you with Police station assistance and advise you of your rights, if you have been arrested by the police and remanded in custody.

Youth Legal Representation in a Police Station

We undertake private work, we can provide representation in both the Magistrates and Youth Courts. All cases will start off in the Magistrates Court no matter how serious the offence is, unless the defendant is aged 17 or under, in which case matters will start in the Youth Court.

If your case is too serious to be dealt with by the Magistrates or Youth Court, or you were provided with the option to elect Crown Court for your case to heard by a judge and jury, our Crown Court department are here to help. With your consent, we will instruct independent Barristers to represent you at Court and our representatives will ensure that you are kept informed of all developments. We will be with you from your initial Court appearance to your trial or sentence date.

Legal Aid Funding

We can offer legal aid funding on eligible criminal law cases by the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) which is a system of government funding. Legal aid can be used to help pay for legal counsel. Not everyone is eligible for Legal aid because it is means tested, this means that in order to qualify for legal aid your income and savings will be taken into account. If you’ve been charged with a crime, you must ask your criminal solicitor if you’re able to get criminal legal aid. If you find that you are eligible for legal aid funding for your criminal law matter we can help you to facilitate your legal aid claim.

  • 5 star review  I contacted Whitehorse Blackmans Solicitors as I needed help with my British Citizenship application. I was thoroughly and patiently guided through the maze of the questions I had by Mudassir over the phone, followed by an appointment at their office. Everyone at the office were so lovely, welcoming and helpful. Having had horrid experience with immigration solicitors in London before, I was so pleasantly surprised at Mudassir’s efficiency and commitment to his work. Everything went incredibly fast, with my application being ready and sent off within a week. I am so thrilled to say that I received my British citizenship a few days ago! The entire process took less than two months, mainly thanks to Mudassir’s incredible efficiency and organised hard work. His work was also complimented by the lady at the Biometrics office, letting me know that my documents were uploaded in such an incredibly organised and proper manner, allowing them to move forward quicker and send my case off to the Home Office on the same day, speeding up the process considerably. All I have to say is a massive thank you to Mudassir for his fantastic work. I highly recommend him and Whiterose Blackmans Excellent experience *****

  • 5 star review  I used Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors to apply for my spouse visa and the case was dealt with by Mudassir Ali. Mudassir was very friendly and efficient and was certainly an expert in this field with his detailed knowledge and professionalism. The service was excellent from start to finish. The advice and requirements were made very clear to me and Mudassir was very thorough, spending a significant amount of time putting the case together and making sure nothing was missed. I was kept up to date on a regular basis and was successful with the visa being approved quickly and on the first attempt. I would like to thank Mudassir Ali and the staff at Whiterose Blackmans for all their hard work and the excellent service during the case. I would also highly recommend this firm to friends and family in the future. Excellent service and a very happy customer.
