Connecticut Lawyer: Abuse and Neglect Cases
Have you been accused of child abuse and neglect by the Department of Children and Families?
These matters are very time sensitive. I encourage you to get in touch with an experienced lawyer immediately. As your attorney, I will get to work right away to see that your rights are protected. I will stand by your side seeking to keep your family together.
I have more than 14 years of experience working in the juvenile court system in Fairfield County and the surrounding parts of Connecticut. You can be certain that I know how to stand up to DCF. I know how to get results.
Allegations of child abuse and neglect can lead to the Department of Children and Families taking away your child. They have the right to do a 96 hour hold if they deem it necessary. From that point, they will go in front of a judge to seek custody of the child.

You can fight back against DCF. If the state has obtained temporary custody of your child, you will be summoned to juvenile court. Once at court, you have the right to request a hearing within 10 days. In this hearing, you will have the opportunity to present your side of the story and defend yourself against child neglect or abuse allegations. I know how to put together solid strategies for these hearings. I know how to bring in witnesses and gather evidence to demonstrate your position. You can be certain that I will work hard to help you get your child back.
Whether your child abuse or neglect allegations stem from accusations of drug use, domestic violence, sexual abuse, physical abuse or any other matter, you can count on me to stand by your side to see that your side of the story is heard.
