Advocating For Parents In CPS Removal Cases
The state of Texas has authority to intervene to protect children from abuse, neglect or endangerment. It can be terrifying and heartbreaking to have your kids taken away, even temporarily. Removal is traumatic for children, even when it’s for their own safety. And there is no guarantee they will be returned to you once CPS takes that drastic step.

We will help you fight to keep your children with you or to stay involved in their life. Our attorneys can also defend you against any parallel criminal charges of child abuse or child endangerment. Based in Cedar Park, we handle CPS cases throughout Central Texas.
