We approach each case with an open mind. Reality does not always support belief, and illusions pervade the minds of even the most conscientious, including police officers. Whether untrained for the task, lacking supervision or simply a bad day that affected the objective investigation of your case you can use the law and the courts to obtain free access to material held by the police in your case. Innocent people will be convicted if the prosecution fails to disclose material which will or might enable them to demonstrate their innocence. Non disclosure, or late disclosure, will result in prejudicing the case of the prosecution. This is a vital safeguard of the innocent citizen and is there to prevent the success of false accusations. 

It is always wise and prudent to refuse any information or reply to police officers until after the arrival of your lawyer to consult with you there. An exception to that rule would be where some person would be in immediate fear for their life or of serious harm. To that extent your duty to cooperate should be clear.

We may consult and engage a barrister at law, depending on the seriousness and the issues in the case. The barrister is a court advocate who usually is employed on your behalf for cases that usually must be heard in higher courts. All information obtained from you is treated with strict confidentiality in accordance with law. Members of the police body in the Republic of Ireland are called “An Garda Siochana”. Each member is known as a “Garda”. “An Garda Siochana” is translated to “Peace Guards” or “Guardians of the Peace”. They are the national police force. We represent you by ensuring that all appropriate steps are timely made to protect your innocents.
