Q189: Do I need a solicitor if I have to attend court as a witness?

No, if you are a witness or a complainant in a case then you do not need a solicitor. You are simply telling the court what you saw/what happened etc. The Crown Prosecution Service prosecutes the case on behalf of the police and the defendant will have a solicitor to represent him/her but you do not need any legal representation.

For more information please see the websites in related information. There is a link to the 'Help for Victims' website and a Youtube guide to the website.
