What We Do

Arrests and Police Station Assistance

Kinnear & Co Solicitors offer a 24 hour call out service to police stations throughout the six counties.

This service is free of charge. Everyone is entitled to Legal Aid assistance under the PACE scheme for their legal advice and representation at a police station.

If you wish, we will keep your family informed of the situation throughout the process.

Should you wish to lodge a complaint about how you or your case was handled by the police, we can also lodge representations with the Police Ombudsman on your behalf.

We are also available to attend voluntary PACE interviews by arrangement.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need advice and/or assistance with arrests on 02890719171. This is the same number to call if you need to contact us out of normal business hours.

Criminal Law

We take all criminal matters extremely seriously. We understand this is can be a very stressful and worrying time for you and your family.

We offer professional advice and representation with the core objectives of getting you the best outcome, whilst keeping you fully informed of the process and your options.

If you need advice or assistance in regard to a Magistrate’s Court Summons or Charge Sheet, please do not hesitate to contact us on 02890719171.

Judicial Review

Judicial Review is the process whereby the High Court in Belfast can review a decision made by a public body (such as a local council, the PSNI, the Prison Service or the Secretary of State) if that decision is considered to be unfair or unreasonable.

Anyone can take a Judicial Review, as long as they are affected by the decision in question.

The decision must be challenged (i.e. brought to court) within three months of the decision being made. It is therefore very important that should you feel a decision has been made that adversely impacts on you and your rights that you make contact with us as soon as possible.

If a public body has made a decision that you believe to be unfair, please do not hesitate to contact us on 02890719171 and we will be happy to advise you on any potential challenge.

  • Tripping or falling in a public place
  • An injury as a result of a criminal offence
  • An injury sustained in the course of your employment
