Re: family case

First, since ACS has stated that your case is unfounded you have very little to worry about in the way of his report having serious effect on you and your children.

Second, you should seriously consider getting an attorney. You are walking into an arena that has very specific rules and procedures. YOu do not want to make a wrong decision with out competent counsel.

If you would like a consultation, you can contact my office at 516.746.4747 or [email protected]
