Child Welfare Cases

School Advoacy

Care and protection, termination of parental rights, and child requiring assistance (CRA) proceedings are serious matters with permanent implications. We are zealous advocates committed to serving your needs --whether that means advocating for new services or resources, a safety plan, a new placement, strategic motions and hearings, for full permanent custody/TPR trials--we help you protect your most valuable asset: your family.
An education is essential and it is your child's right. Let's us help you navigate the myriad of services and school placements available to your child as part of their right to a free and appropriate public education. From a 504 plan to an IEP to a private day school or residential placement, we can help you get it.
