Child abuse and neglect agencies exist to protect children from harm. Sometimes in an effort to protect children, the system infringes on the rights of parents to raise their own children. Without adequate representation, parents who must face the child welfare system and dependency courts can become overwhelmed and confused by the process. A good attorney will walk you through the process, help guide you in making the best decisions for you and your child, and zealously defend and advocate for your family.
With me, you'll get someone who understands the ins and outs of child welfare agencies and their policies and methods.I worked as a child welfare investigator and also as a social worker supervising visitations and providing on hands parenting classes to families separated by dependency proceedings. I can help you achieve realistic expectations about outcomes and set achievable goals for your family to endure their involvement with child welfare agencies and court systems.
