The Gardaí want to talk to me what should I do?
Once you become aware the Gardaí want to talk to you, the first thing you should do is contact a solicitor. Whether you are a witness in a case, a victim, or being questioned as a suspect, it is important that you know your rights, entitlements and obligations. A solicitor will help prepare you for what could possibly be a long and difficult journey. They can visit you, advise you and accompany you at the Garda Station in order to protect your interests.
How do I get a solicitor for court?
If possible you should visit the court you are due to attend in advance of our own court date. You will be able to see all the solicitors available in that court and will get an idea of what to expect. You can choose a solicitor from that pool or you can do some research and hire a solicitor that you have found online or through word of mouth. It is never a good idea to simply choose the first solicitor you see on the day of your court appointment as preparing in advance will enable you to get the best outcome for your case.
Would I qualify for legal aid?
If you are unemployed, or are in low paid employment you will qualify for legal aid as it is means tested and you will be helped to apply in court by your solicitor.
