Lawyer Plug has successfully represented clients in pre-charge and pre-conviction matters such as police investigations. We can be retained to provide you with skilled and detailed counsel if you are under police investigation, and we will work diligently to prevent criminal (or other) charges being laid against you.
A conviction for any criminal offence will result in a criminal record, which can negatively impact many areas of your life including your reputation, your ability to maintain or obtain employment, and your ability to travel to other countries like the United States. In addition, a conviction may carry other penalties, including a potentially lengthy term of imprisonment.
Even if the police have charged you, the Crown Prosecutor may not yet have approved your charges and it may be possible to prevent them from doing so. Lawyer Plug has often been retained immediately after someone has been charged, and in many of these cases we have been able to persuade the police or the Crown Prosecutor to drop the charges.
Police investigations and criminal defence makes up a large part of our work, with clients including well-known figures from business, politics, the sport and entertainment industries, media companies, journalists, as well as private individuals who find themselves caught up in the turmoil of a criminal investigation. Our experience representing high-profile figures means that our team possesses a wealth of knowledge about the reputation management issues potentially arising. We also have particular expertise in acting for individuals who may be vulnerable and need protection from the criminal process, whether on account of their age or a particular physical or mental condition.
Our lawyers are available 24 hours a day to provide police station representation. We are proactive from an early stage in any criminal investigation, regularly acting for individuals who, having been interviewed under caution, want advice about persuading the authorities not to charge them with a criminal offence.
