Child Protection Law in Michigan

If you or a loved one has been accused of child abuse or neglect, it’s crucial to contact a seasoned CPS attorney as soon as possible.

You’ll need a knowledgeable CPS lawyer in Michigan conducting his or her own investigation to prove that you did not harm, or attempt to harm, your child in any way. You’ll want to find an attorney that has ample experience battling child abuse and neglect claims. This experience is extremely beneficial when it comes to dealing with CPS officers. Wise legal counsel could mean the difference between having your child or children removed from your home and completely clearing your name.
