Under New York Law, state and local child welfare agencies are responsible for protecting the best interests and safety of children. Any reported allegations of child abuse, child neglect and child maltreatment require those agencies to take immediate and decisive legal action. These actions are usually taken without consideration as how those actions will impact the lives, rights or interests of others involved.

The priority for those agencies is to cautiously protect the safety and best interests of the child. As a result of our years of practice, we realize that parents and accused individuals are often overwhelmed by the process and face the real possibility that their child might be temporarily removed from the home. To prevent this, immediate action must be taken. If you have been accused of child abuse, child neglect or child maltreatment finding the right lawyer is crucial.
