DSCC Call Handling

Solicitor Support Services can arrange to take all your calls from the DSCC (Defence Solicitor Call Centre).

Are you among the 80% of solicitor firms who believe that call handling service would make them more competitive? Do you recognise the growing demand for client care within the criminal defence law industry? 

Answering the telephone swiftly is key to ensuring that you never miss a case and promptly provide telephone advice to clients in custody. Maintaining high standards by dealing with the cases as soon as possible and engage with your clients in custody immediately after accepting the case.​​ 


Do you want your staff to be able to give their full attention to their daily jobs without being on standby overnight getting disturbed with calls from DSCC and police, only to find out the police will be dealing with the interview in the morning?


We understand that excellent client service is vital to the potential growth and running of criminal defence law firms. The first point of contact with a client in custody is usually on the telephone after acceptance of the case from DSCC. At this critical point, a firm needs to be on standby and ready to advise the client.​​ We know that a professional call handler always inspires the client's belief in your solicitor firm. ​All our call handlers are trained with the highest industry standard and are fully qualified professionals. From Police Station Reps to Duty Solicitors.


Our call-handling agents are hand-picked and have the following advantages​;

  • Qualified to provide legal advice

  • Qualified to attend police stations and courts

  • Pay attention to detail

  • Can-do attitude

  • Understand the rules of confidentiality

  • Calm and collective

  • Attentive listeners

We at Solicitor Support Services provide your firm with a dedicated phone number to handle out of office hours DSCC calls, accepting new cases on behalf of your firm. Giving you the extra edge over your competitors.​​ A detailed report of DSCC calls, contact with the police and clients, any outstanding cases, are emailed to the nominated members of the firm every morning.
