Child Dependency Attorneys – Private DCFS CPS Defense Lawyers

Experienced Child Dependency attorneys can make ALL the difference in you stopping DCFS CPS from taking your kids (if you are under investigation), or can help get your children back if taken already. To depend upon an overworked, court-appointed lawyer is tantamount to admitting defeat. Defeat? Sorry, but yes, that is the truth of being nothing more than a number in the bureaucracy of the very specialized Juvenile Dependency Courts! Unfortunately, once taken, you might not see your kids returned in a full year — or ever.

Don’t believe us. Read verbatim transcripts from parents fighting Los Angeles DCFS social workers and battling CPS agencies in Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, Santa Barbara, and throughout California. Educate yourself of the realities of these tyrannical agencies believing you, or allowing your family to remain intact. READ for yourself the heartbreaking stories from moms, dads, and grandparents –people just like you– who call my weekly Radio Show Podcast desperately seeking my help and advice.

Radio show callers share one after another depressing story of their dealings with DCFS and CPS social workers who are trying to, or have already taken their kids. Read the well-formatted transcripts of real parents’ ongoing frustrations as they attempt to deal with the complexities of the Juvenile Court system, the dates, forms, procedures, and hearings in their desperate efforts to get their kids back.

These real radio caller stories have a common denominator: parents who settled on either (1) an over-burdened, over-worked, court-appointed attorney, or (2), they hired a ‘general family law attorney’ who was completely baffled, like a ‘fish out of water’ trying to help parents in a strange, confusing, Juvenile Dependency courtroom. These special courts are NOT like any regular courts that normal attorneys understand.

As a parent or relative who has the child’s interest at heart, You MUST seek help from a Juvenile Dependency Attorney who has, at least, 10-years’ experience working fulltime in these special courts learning how they work. READ RADIO SHOW TRANSCRIPTS HERE
