"I was investigated by the CPS and was indicated for maltreatment - hired the firm - we appealed - after the hearing, the matter was deemed unfounded and has been sealed... " -- Client Review

Local law enforcement and state child welfare agencies are given the responsibility to protect the safety and best interests of children under the law. So, when allegations of child abuse, child neglect and child maltreatment are reported or witnessed, those agencies will often take immediate and decisive action without consideration for the rights or interests of others involved.

During the course of their investigation and using the full resources of the government, those agencies will make it a priority to always use caution and make sure to protect the safety and best interests of the child. When this occurs, the parents affected or even accused are often overwhelmed and face the seemingly impossible task of having to prevent their child’s temporary removal from the home. If you have been accused of child abuse, child neglect or child maltreatment you need immediate legal representation by an experienced and skilled family lawyers to protect your rights and interests.
