Michael S. Pascazi, Esq., recently won a fair hearing on behalf of a client who was alleged to have committed child neglect by N.Y.S. Child Protective Service (CPS). Attorney Pascazi first sought and secured an administrative review of CPS’s finding of child neglect. The NYS Department of Social Services sustained CPS’s findings. Attorney Pascazi then commenced a “fair hearing” before an administrative law judge. Upon considering the evidence adduced at the hearing, the administrative law judge reversed CPS’s finding and cleared Attorney Pascazi’s client of any child neglect. Potential employers of Attorney Pascazi’s client will never be told of CPS’s original finding.
Should you, a loved one or a friend become involved with a CPS matter, seek competent legal advice as soon as possible. CPS has tremendous powers and can turn your life upside down. Attorney Pascazi would also like to hear about it. Pascazi Law Offices PLLC represents persons that are the targets of CPS investigations.
