After an anonymous source reported battery on child DCS got involved in a family’s life and turned it upside-down. Child Services wanted the young parents to agree to a safety plan which would have allowed DCS visits, inspections, and interviews of children.

They contacted Criminal defense lawyer Hessler, who acted quickly to protect their rights and actually explained their options. He negotiated with DCS to have the family pediatrician examine the child and advised his clients to refuse the safety plan. This kept them from going through an invasive investigation and proved the abuse allegation was unsubstantiated.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
