I was a court appointed attorney for parents, guardians, de facto parents and caretakers who were charged with child abuse or neglect in Children’s Court in Monterey Park.  My clients were accused of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse or neglect and I worked passionately to defend my clients against these charges.

My services include preparing the client and appearing at interviews with social workers, and defending my clients at Detention, Placement, Pre-trial, Adjudication and Disposition hearings and working with social workers to get my clients to reunify with their children.
