Success Stories

Mr ….. Glasgow.

“I was charged with 2 sexual assaults. There was three witnesses against me and I had no witnesses myself. It was complete lies and I was having sleepless nights. This type of conviction would have ruined my entire life. Mr. Kilcoyne was very sympathetic towards me. He spent over an hour with me going through every little detail of the case. When that case went to trial I was delighted after the first day. He did such a professional job of exposing the lies. I knew then I had the best lawyer I could have hoped for. I was found not guilty and feel such a weight has been lifted. I would recommend Mr. Kilcoyne to anyone .”

Mr D …. Glasgow

“It was the last old firm game of 2012. I was out all day drinking in pubs. I had no idea what was to follow. It was my worst nightmare. I met a girl and we went from one pub to the other. I invited her to my flat and she came willingly. I was in my flat and we engaged consensually in a sexual encounter. The girl suddenly and without warning ran out of the flat screaming and crying. There was no plausible explanation for her conduct. The next thing I knew I was in a police station being questioned for a serious sexual assault. My family arranged for Mr. Kilcoyne to represent me. I was bailed at the sheriff court and was advised it would be a number months before the trial would take place. I was under severe pressure. I am an electrician and was advised if I was convicted I would receive a custodial sentence and be put on the sexual offenders register. I would lose my job and my life would be in tatters. Mr. Kilcoyne carefully prepared my case and covered every angle. Every possible investigation was made. I had numerous consultations preparing the case. I appeared in front of a sheriff and jury at the Sheriff Court approximately 9 months later. The jury came back with a not proven verdict which saved my life. To this day I have no idea why these false allegations were made against me. It was the worst 9 months of my life waiting for the trial. I was so relieved and a mountain had been lifted from my shoulders. I would not wish this experience on anyone. I cannot thank Mr. Kilcoyne enough for the excellent representation I received.”
