Stokoe Partnership Solicitors is regarded as one of the leading firms in the UK for serious crime, and has been for many years. We are recognised by both of the UK’s leading legal directories, The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
Our expert lawyers are hugely experienced at representing clients charged with kidnapping and false imprisonment offences.
We regularly instruct leading members of the Bar, and ensure that cases are handled by barristers with the necessary level of expertise and experience in dealing with the offence. We also enjoy a good working relationship with a range of experts (including medical, psychiatric, forensic, scientific and technological experts) to ensure that the prosecution’s evidence is fully tested and that any defence is properly advanced.
We also understand the importance of ensuring that our clients and their immediate families are supported and are able to speak to their solicitor at any time. We pride ourselves on being able to consistently offer the highest level of service whenever this might be needed.
We successfully represented a client charged with false imprisonment, kidnapping, wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. At trial, the complainant alleged the incident related to an outstanding drug debt owed to our client . Our client denied the allegations asserting that somebody else caused the complaint’s injuries and that the complainant was not kidnapped or falsely imprisoned; in fact, the complainant wanted to be locked in the boot of our client’s car, whilst injured. Our client was acquitted of all charges.
