New York Lawyers Protecting Your Rights in CPS and ACS Investigations

The Proven Attorneys at the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo

Decades of Experience Fighting for the Rights of Parents

Your children play hard and you encourage that. As a consequence, though, they’ll often end up with bumps or bruises. Far too often, an uninformed third party, such as a teacher or medical practitioner, may see the scrapes they receive in their youthful zeal and misinterpret the source. The next thing you know, you’ve been contacted by Child Protective Services, with notice that you are under investigation for child abuse or neglect. Though you may find the allegations baseless, you need to take them seriously. You need to immediately contact the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo.

At Schissel DeCorpo, we bring more than 30 years of experience to parents in New York City and the surrounding communities who are involved in or facing Child Protective Services or Administration for Children’s Services investigations. We know that such an investigation can be frightening, that investigators will often misinterpret your answers or assume that a child’s injuries were the result of abuse or neglect. We also understand that, with allegations of child abuse or neglect, there’s no need to establish your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Innuendo and generalizations can often carry more weight than the facts. We have seen too many parents wrongfully accused of abuse or neglect based purely on circumstantial evidence. We are committed to fully protecting your rights throughout the process, so that you can keep your family together.

To arrange a free initial consultation with our knowledgeable and proven New York CPS/ACS lawyers, contact us online at info@sdnylaw.com or call our offices, at 718-350-2802 in Queens, at 516-561-6645 in Nassau County, in Suffolk County at 631-319-8262 or in Westchester County at 914-997-0071.

Ensuring that Your Rights Are Fully Protected in a New York CPS/ACS Investigation

In any investigation by Child Protective Services or the Administration for Children’s Services, you need strong legal counsel at every step of the process. Anything you say at any time can be twisted and subsequently used against you. Experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel can prevent a slip of the tongue that could potentially lead to the termination of your parental rights.

At the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo, we’ll be there for you at all times:

  • We’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding any allegations of improper conduct, carefully gathering, assessing and preserving the evidence to exonerate you
  • We’ll review any documents you have received and prepare any documents requested during the investigation
  • We’ll be your advocate throughout the interview process, personally attending all meetings, hearings or proceedings involving CPS or ACS personnel
  • We’ll be an intermediary for you with Child Protective Services and Administration for Children’s Services, so that you don’t have to deal with their aggressive tactics by yourself
