When You Are Ready To Pull The Trigger Crimes Against Children Integrity, Action and Value


At Woodley & Dudley, our attorneys frequently work with parents who find themselves charged with crimes concerning children. In many of these cases, the alleged unlawful activity comes up in a Child Protective Services (CPS) investigation. A parent is accused of abuse or neglect and is charged with a crime as part of the CPS case.

Whether this is a crime that has been alleged to have been committed against your child by CPS or by law enforcement officers, know that they are very serious accusations that must be addressed immediately. We can help you build a comprehensive defense against a wide range of potential criminal charges, including:

  • Issues regarding child neglect
  • Cases concerning sexual abuse of a child
  • Allegations regarding physical abuse of a child
  • Cases involving child endangerment

Because these cases carry such severe penalties, you need to reach out to us as soon as possible once you have been arrested or learn that you are under investigation. A conviction here could ruin your life, and make it impossible for you to spend time with your kids. Even the mere accusation of one of these crimes is enough to change your life forever.

We want to make sure that you have an opportunity to have a strong defense presented for you. These are tough cases, with many different emotional issues involved. We have handled hundreds of criminal cases over the years. We are not here to cast judgment on your situation. We are here to stand up for you to allow you to have a fair trial.
