I am a witness in a criminal trial, do I need a solicitor to represent or advise me?
No. As a witness you do not need legal advice or representation.
However, you may have questions about the process and what is required from you. For further information you can contact the Witness Service at the Court you are required to attend.
If you have been served with a Summons and do not want to attend or have retracted your statement and need advice then please contact us
