NJ Child Abuse Defense Attorney Defending Clients Charged with Abuse in Atlantic & Cape May County

Defense for Child Abuse Charges in Atlantic and Cape May Counties

Being charged with child abuse can ruin your reputation and destroy your family if those charges are not countered effectively. If you have been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, you have to begin preparing to fight those criminal charges as well as preparing to keep your children from being taken by Social Services.

Endangering the welfare of a child is a felony charge that can carry a 10-year penalty. This is a very serious charge that is often treated lightly by accusers who remain anonymous or who are seeking to affect a child custody dispute in their favor.

When accusations of endangering the welfare of a child are being made, you need to secure the representation of an attorney who can protect your rights, protect your family and protect your reputation.

I am committed to working to ensure that my clients’ rights receive the full protection they deserve. As a former prosecutor with the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, I bring experience that allows me to have a deep insight into how a prosecutor may approach a case.
