Protecting Children From Abuse And Neglect

At Joseph Brophy Cordell, Attorney at Law, our primary concern is always protecting children from harm — both at home and in the courtroom. We are dedicated to providing parents with the effective, efficient representation they need to keep their children safe, while also safeguarding their parental rights.

Allegations Of Child Abuse And Neglect

Courts do not take accusations of child abuse lightly. In cases where abuse or neglect of children has been alleged, the Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) or Child Protective Services (CPS) can immediately remove those children from the home and place them in foster care while the accusations are being investigated.

We understand how troubling this can be for parents and how powerless it makes them feel.

Offering Safety And Security To Children

At the law firm of Joseph Brophy Cordell, Attorney at Law, we begin working with parents the moment they find out they are being investigated for abuse or neglect. We understand how much is on the line for parents and will aggressively advocate to clear their names and protect their children.

Despite the severity of abuse allegations, some parents who are engaged in divorce or custody battles may make false accusations of abuse or neglect to gain an advantage in court proceedings. We take an aggressive approach to protecting clients from these unwarranted and unjustifiable claims, helping them preserve their right to custody and parenting time with their children.
