Juvenile Law


kids hanging out together
Juvenile law includes cases where minors are charged with crimes, but most juvenile cases in Iowa are “CINA” cases in which the Iowa Department of Human Services petitions a court to remove children from their caretakers – usually their parents.
This is obviously a confusing and frightening time for most parents, and they need someone with experience on their side.
I have worked with the IDHS on hundreds of cases. I know when to work with them and when to stand up to them. If your children are removed from your care, I will give you the guidance and the representation you need to get them back in your home as quickly as possible.
