  • A Day in the Life of a Duty Solicitor

    The Duty Solicitor, of which there are two at Leicester Magistrates’ Court every day, is available to represent any person charged with a criminal offence. There are certain cases that they cannot assist with but can generally help with most matters, as long as that person has not already had the previous service of the Duty Solicitor for the same offence on another occasion. This service is free of charge.

  • Why do I need a solicitor for my interview with the police?

    At ZMS we are frequently told that a person was interviewed without a solicitor as “I haven’t done anything wrong”. Even if this is the case, we strongly advise you to have a solicitor present at your interview.
