An experienced kidnapping defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege will aggressively defend your case in a kidnapping investigation or trial.

Kidnapping in Illinois is the secret and knowing confinement of an individual against his will or using threat, force, deceit, or enticement to cause someone to go from one place to another place with the intent of the secret and knowing confinement of an individual against his will. The confinement of a 12-year-old or younger child without the consent of the parent is kidnapping.

A conviction of either of these crimes can carry heavy penalties, including spending years in state prison. An experienced, kidnapping defense lawyer from the firm will aggressively fight to defend your case.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
