Private representation of parents in Child Protective Services cases
Know your rights before you talk to anyone from CPS, they won’t tell you your rights. CPS can’t do anything without your consent. You as a parent or care giver MUST know your rights and be totally informed what you have a legal right to have and to express, whether you are a parent caught up in a very oppressive, abusive and many times unlawful actions of CPS or if you have never been investigated by CPS.

School and Educational cases
If a school violates your rights or your child’s rights, it may be time to hire a lawyer with administrative law experience. Lawsuits against government entities are procedurally complex and the school or district will be represented by attorneys who handle similar cases on a daily basis. An education attorney can help level playing field against the school or district, evaluate your options and represent you at administrative hearings or in court.
