Representation During Every Stage

In a dependency or neglect case, the state must prove there was probable cause for removing your child from your home and that probable cause continues to exist to keep custody of your child.

When you hire our office, we will aggressively defend you and force the state to prove the allegations against you. You can count on us to personally represent you at every hearing, including your probable cause, adjudication and disposition hearings. If the court adjudicates your child dependent/neglected, we can represent you at the review hearings and hearings to select a permanent plan or terminate parental rights.

We will guide you through the entire legal process, using language you can understand. We will inform you of evidence you can gather and changes you can make to help improve the probability that your children will be returned to you.
