Juvenile/Dependency Law


Having your child taken by Child Protective Services is a stressful, scary and confusing time. You need attorneys who have experience in this specialized area of law on your side. The Heard Law Firm handles juvenile dependency cases weekly and knows how to work with not only CPS, but the Attorney General’s Office. You need a firm that will use this experience to help you navigate the dependency court system and understand the demands of CPS in order to regain custody of your child as soon as possible.

Similarly, the Juvenile Criminal Justice system is extremely different from the Adult system. The role of probation is different, the goals of the court are different and the penalties are different. The Heard Law Firm has years of experience, both as prosecutors and as defense attorneys, in this area. You can depend on our firm to help you and your child receive a just and fair result.
