Actions Against the Police

• Unlawful detention
• Wrongful arrest
• Interference with goods
• Assault
• Harassment / over zealous policing

As the Police are supposed to be on the frontline of upholding the rule of law, it can be particularly distressing if you are the victim of Police misconduct.
Whether the Police have acted negligently or you have been assaulted or subjected to false imprisonment, wrongful arrest or malicious prosecution, you should not suffer in silence. You have every right to demand an apology, seek redress and/ or pursue a claim for compensation.

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with actions against the police, the prison service and other public bodies. We deal with Police complaints, appeals to the Independent Police Complaints Commission and civil proceedings for compensation. We can give you support, professional advice and guidance during what can be an extremely stressful time.

9 times out of 10 the Police do a good job but clearly human nature sometimes falls short. Members of the public have a right to be dealt with in a respectful and dignified manner.

We have a proven track record of obtaining compensation from the Police for clients who have been subject to negligence and brutality at the hands of the Police.

At W Brook & Co we take relentless action against over zealous policing and get justice and compensation for our clients.

How our Wills & Probate Solicitors Can Help...

7 out of 10 adults do not have a Will and without one:

• A surviving spouse will not necessarily inherit everything
• An unmarried partner has no automatic entitlement
• The family home may have to be sold
• Children may be unintentionally disinherited.

Our Will & Probate Solicitors can help you protect your interests and give you the peace of mind knowing your Estate is taken care of when you pass away.

Estate Administration - Probate or Intestacy

When someone dies there are a number of important tasks that need to be completed. If the person died leaving a valid Will, then the named Executors take on this responsibility. In the absence of a valid Will, the person is said to have died "Intestate" and the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate.

The role of Executor or Administrator can be an onerous one. The deceased's estate may involve valuable or complex matters and an Executor or Administrator is personally liable for administering the estate correctly.

At W Brook & Co we make it easy to deal with these issues, providing expert advice and support that is essential at this difficult time.
