On a daily basis, I take on cases against the police where the treatment of my client beggars belief. They often have injuries to show, but the mental scars are much more invidious. They may have been punched, ignored, abused, or mistreated. It is astounding. We think we live in a civilised society but far too often it is an illusion.
There are many misunderstandings regarding potential claims against the police, and so it is important to clarify certain basic principles. Firstly, there is no automatic right to compensation if you have been acquitted of a charge. The fact that you were found not guilty either by Magistrate(s)
At The Legal Company we believe in access to the law for everyone. By providing a fairly unique solution, we think we achieve this to a substantial extent. We provide an initial Free Assessment of your case. There is no obligation. If we believe the case has real merit, for a moderate fixed fee we instruct one of our panel barristers to adviose on the prospects of the case in the hope that he is able to take on the case on a no win no fee basis. This then means he takes the risk on his costs. He wins, he gets his costs, he loses, he waives his fees. It can work exceedingly well, but only where the client has a decent case. That is why we pre-vet them in house and tell you - as it is.
Everyone deserves respect. I demend it, and always try to show everyone respect. Some police officers are jolly good at what they do; others let power and status go to their head and make judgments about others they are not entitled to make.
