Our Services

Being arrested and finding yourself detained at a Police Station can be a frightening and traumatic experience. At Bunting & Riley not only do we offer the advice and assistance that is required but also provide that advice and assistance sympathetically.

For Buxton Police Station our position as the only Criminal Legal Practice in Buxton enables us to attend far faster than most.

The Police Station Service is free and on a 24 hour a day basis. All our solicitors are qualified expert Duty Solicitors, and our Legal Executive is accredited as a Police Station Representative. No matter what time of day or night you require help at the Police Station you will receive advice and assistance from a well trained, motivated and dedicated criminal practitioner.

Ask promptly! If you are arrested, as soon as you arrive at the Custody Suite of a Police Station you will be asked if you require advice and assistance. Ask for Bunting & Riley

From that point we will be contacted by the Police through the Defence Solicitor Call Centre and we can then begin to actively progress your case and minimise the length of time you are likely to be detained by the Police.

You do not need a phone or even to know our phone number for this service just remember to ask for “Bunting & Riley Solicitors”. And don’t forget that even if you don’t ask at first (which you really ought to!) you can ask later.

Remember, also, that if the Police bail you on the street or ask you to attend a Police Station at a particular time you can contact us directly before you go so that we attend at the same time as you do.


Wherever possible you will be represented at the Magistrates Court by the same person that represented you at the Police Station. Whenever this cannot be accommodated you can rest assured that within our small team of advocates your case will have been discussed, analysed and prepared in order that you receive the best advice and representation at Court.

When appearing at Court for the first time it is important that you have confidence and trust in the advocate that is pleading your case. At Bunting & Riley you will be guaranteed a high quality advocate namely Mr James Riley or Miss Annis Rowlands.

Due to our location in the centre of the High Peak our local area already takes in Chesterfield, Derby, Stockport, Manchester, Ashton-under-Lyne, Oldham, Sheffield and Rotherham. In addition we have the ability to travel anywhere within England and Wales on a case by case basis.

Come and see us when you get your Court date. Ring for an appointment. If you really can’t come to see us ask for us at Chesterfield or Stockport. (we are usually there!)


We have years of experience preparing in selecting the most appropriate and skilled Barrister to meet the individual needs of any particular case and ensuring that they are properly briefed.

In addition, at Bunting & Riley we have our own in house Higher Court Advocate in Mr Riley whose original training was at the bar.

We also keep a central database of experts who can provide evidence and reports to the Crown Court in a variety of fields from firearms through to the medicinal uses of cannabis.
