Westchester County Attorneys Representing Families Accused of Child Abuse or Neglect in New York

At the Law Office of Peter D. Hoffman, PC, located in Katonah, New York, we help parents protect themselves and their families from Child Protective Services (CPS). You want to take action to fight these cases. If you are encountering these types of problems, contact us today to see how our attorneys can help you.

Oftentimes, when school districts and parents disagree about educational programs for a child with special needs, the school district will retaliate against an advocate parent, and use their advocacy as evidence of educational neglect, and report such neglect to CPS. We have represented many families in this area.

In addition to defending against school district claims to CPS, our lawyers handle appeals as well. We have made appeals to the appellate division to overturn findings of neglect or educational neglect and/or to expunge the record. We work with a variety of experts who can help us communicate to the courts more effectively and defend against these claims.

CPS should not be used as a weapon. They provide an important service to many children, but if your child's school district has wrongfully involved them in your dispute, we can help protect your rights. Throughout Westchester and Putnam County, Rockland County, Manhattan and the Bronx, New York, we protect the rights of parents who have a special needs child.
