Actions Against Police Advice Clinic
As a law firm, we have a longstanding history of holding the police to account for abuse of power or ill treatment and obtaining favourable settlements for our clients. Our solicitors have been involved in landmark cases such as at The Supreme Court on behalf of families killed in Iraq in poorly armoured Snatch Land Rovers. The ruling established that the Ministry of Justice has a duty to protect the human rights of soldiers.
Our solicitors use their expertise to seek accountability from the state and fight on behalf of those who have been infringed. This could be bereaved families where a death has been caused due to negligence of individuals for the state, ill treatment by the police, or those who have been wrongly caught up in the criminal justice system.
We passionately believe in helping clients from all walks of life, irrespective of their resources. If your rights have been infringed, we are offering a free initial twenty minute appointment with one of our solicitors to talk about your case.
We hold it in these clinics:
- Medway CAB (Friday mornings): 01634 383 760
- Maidstone CAB (Fridays afternoon): 01622 752 420 / 01622 757 882

Our Civil Liberties team are able to pursue disciplinary proceedings and the full range of civil actions against the police. We have a high degree of success obtaining apologies, compensation, deletion of client data from police databases and changes to police practice. Our solicitors have won many awards for their fearless determination to hold the police to account where the police have acted illegally or unfairly. Our clients have ranged from protestors to victims of crime.
Our solicitors are active members of the Police Action Lawyers Group, a national organisation comprised of solicitors and barristers who specialise in representing claimants against the police.
