    We strongly advise against giving a statement to the police until you’ve consulted with a criminal defence lawyer first. This is because, oftentimes, individuals are requested to provide a statement when they are already under high levels of stress and uncertainty. Any kind of statement given during this time may not adequately describe your version of events or what transpired leading to your charge. In addition, if there are any discrepancies found in your statement, they may be used against you in court.

    By consulting with one of our criminal defence lawyers, you gain the opportunity to collect your nerves and provide a reliable statement to not just the Crown but also to our team of lawyers. We will review all the information provided to us and supply you with a reliable, nonjudgmental, and bias-free opinion on whether or not giving a statement to the police best serves your case in the long run.
