Why you should always have a solicitor present during police questioning

This protection ensures that anything you tell your lawyer is confidential and cannot be used against you in court. The police are not bound by this privilege, which means they can use anything you say as evidence against you.
Having a solicitor present during police questioning can help protect you from self-incrimination and ensure that your rights are respected. Your solicitor can also help ensure that the questioning is conducted fairly and in accordance with the law. If you are facing criminal charges, it is always in your best interest to have a solicitor present during police questioning.
