To Be Charged, Or Not To Be Charged?

Representing Clients at the Police Station can be a little bizarre at times. It is always rather challenging when you are representing a Client for a serious matter and you are representing the Client on your own whilst the Police Investigation team consists of a number of officers. There is also a certain sense of kudos when a news report or television report appears and it concerns your Client.

Whenever I am at the Police Station my priority is to do what I can to get my Client out of the Police Station as quickly as possible without them being prosecuted. But if I am trying to ensure that my Client is released without charge it means that I am trying to stop any of my Client from ever appearing in Court.

Sometimes I think of the money that could be made on serious cases when the Client's case is dropped - I sigh and then think that the Client will be happy they are not going to be prosecuted. Afterall my job is to act in the best interests of my Client and if that means business must suffer then so be it!
