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.

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.
