This client hired our DYFS lawyers after first handling the case with a lawyer that didn’t have much DYFS experience. As a result, there were some holes in the case that needed to be patched. The DYFS case was closed without having a fact finding hearing. Nevertheless, the client was still substantiated because he talked about his desire to molest his children in an interview. Thus, he had to file a DYFS OAL appeal. About six months after hiring the firm, our DYFS OAL appeal lawyers received word that his case was dismissed and that the finding of abuse and neglect was reversed.
