Protect Your Legal Rights ∙ Finding Solutions

At The Grinnell Firm, PSC, we defend parents in dependency, neglect and abuse (DNA) proceedings. Most of these cases involve interventions and investigations by CPS authorities.

We protect people being investigated for:

  • Dependency: CPS will petition for dependency when a child is being abused or neglected or is in some kind of danger. Technically, the child can be named a dependent of the court and the parents can lose parental rights.
  • Juvenile neglect: Neglect occurs when a parent fails to provide essential care for a child or engages in patterns of behavior (like drug addiction or severe alcoholism) that make it impossible to care for the child's needs.
  • Child abuse: Abuse can be physical, sexual or emotional, and it is not limited to proactive acts of abuse. It can include allowing a child to remain in an abusive situation.

Whatever the details of your situation, attorney Eric Grinnell and our legal team have the experience and knowledge to help you protect your parental rights.
