I've been accused of child abuse, what should I do?

Worrying about your future when you’ve been accused of child abuse is natural. Facing allegations of child abuse can be confusing, overwhelming, and downright terrifying. But the right legal representation often proves a valuable asset to anyone defending themselves against these serious crimes. 

1

Hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who is not afraid to go to trial. Very rarely will child abuse cases be resolved without a trial. You will need an attorney who will fight for you every step of the way.

2

While the facts of the case are still fresh in your mind, write down your chronological account of how things transpired. Your criminal lawyer may be able to identify mistakes made by the police that may later result in the felony being reduced or dropped entirely.

3

Take these accusations very seriously because the police will and the court will! Accusations of child abuse are some of the most serious allegations you can face. The police are not necessarily looking out for you. The only person who may be in your corner throughout the whole ordeal is your Criminal Defense Attorney. 

3 Important First Steps

How will this affect other areas of my life?

There are a lot of penalties that will be associated with a criminal conviction, and those are certainly serious and require your complete attention. But they are not the only negative aspects of a trial. Even just a charge could have some negative effects on your employment and other aspects of your personal life including child custody and visitation. Some parents even face the possibility of having their parental rights permanently terminated because of child abuse charges.

 

Your lawyer will play an important role in helping to protect your freedom and your reputation, so it should be someone you trust.

 

Our Criminal Defense Team doesn't stop working for you when your case has reached its resolution. We make sure that the case has as little of an impact on your life as possible, including a lot of implications that do not involve the courtroom. 

Will I be able to pick up the pieces when my case is over?

Our staff will work with you to help you build a bright future following your case. We know that you are the author of your own story and you get to choose how the next chapter of your life will be written.
