Developing a Strong Defense Strategy
Allegations of false imprisonment often stem from emotional disputes between family members. A lack of witness reports can make these cases particularly challenging based on contradictory details and even false statements. Our law firm is prepared to overcome any challenges. We have defended clients facing serious misdemeanor and felony charges, including:
- Domestic violence
- Child abuse
- False imprisonment
- Kidnapping and theft
We will act quickly to make sure the crime allegedly committed fits the charges against you. By definition, kidnapping is when someone forcibly takes another individual a considerable distance. False imprisonment includes preventing hostages from leaving a room or a house.
We will start our defense strategy focused on determining if the action was severe enough to be considered kidnapping. If the plaintiff's story changed from the initial report, we will work to uncover any contradictions or false statements.
Mitigating Any Potential Damages
We will investigate the circumstances behind your arrest to understand if law enforcement made an illegal search and seizure. We will also fight a dismissal or reduction in charges if police officers made procedural errors or violated your civil rights. In some circumstances, we are able to negotiate a kidnapping charge down to false imprisonment, requiring less severe penalties.
