Kidnapping

Kidnapping is the taking away or asportation of a person against the person's will, usually to hold the person in false imprisonment, a confinement without legal authority. This is often done for ransom or in furtherance of another crime. A majority of jurisdictions in the United States retain the "asportation" element for kidnapping, where the victim must be confined in a bounded area against their will and moved. Any amount of movement will suffice for the requirement, even if it is moving the abductee to a house next door.

We work with experienced Criminal Defense Attorney's in each state. We provide state and federal Criminal Defense Attorney referrals to individuals facing major crimes.

Have you been charged with a criminal Kidnapping?

When people are charged with a crime they face the prospect of incarceration. Ultimately that can bring with it probation and parole, large fines, forced registration with law enforcement, and perhaps most damaging, a record that severely hinders even the most rehabilitated - sometimes for the rest of their lives.

What's worse is that the damage can extend even to the accused's family in many ways. Finally, where a crime has been perpetrated the accused must acknowledge the damage that may have been done to any innocent victim. While we don't claim the ability to undo harms already done, we are here to provide finest and most ethical legal defense you'll find anywhere.

How a Defense Attorney can help you:

  • Be available 24/7. The key to good defense work is diligence and speed. We take this job seriously.
  • Spend crucial time on your case so that it is prepared as good as is possible at each stage in the process.
  • Spend time with you (and your family) learning and understanding you and your case.
  • Spend time in investigation so that we will know the case better than even the law enforcement agency involved.
  • Be in contact with the DA or US Attorney in an attempt to ensure that the case, where possible, is terminated as quickly as possible.
  • Hire and manage investigators, who are often able to impeach witnesses for the government who exaggerate or change their stories at trial.
