The Child Protective Services system is a very complicated system to understand, even for many attorneys. When you are facing a legal situation with CPS, you should make sure that your attorney has experience dealing with the people and organizations that are involved with a CPS case, as well as make sure your attorney is familiar with the numerous and unique court dates and other legal aspects of a CPS case. The attorneys at JORGESON PITTMAN LLP have a unique focus in CPS litigation. Many of the Firm’s attorneys are members of the Travis County Court-Appointed Family Advocates (CAFA), and have represented both parents and children involved in hundreds of different CPS cases in Travis County over the past decade.
When CPS removes a child from his or her parents, CPS has or will be filing a lawsuit that seeks to modify or terminate parental rights. This process can be terrifying for families on the receiving end. JORGESON PITTMAN LLP has represented a multitude of parents in both court ordered services cases (COS) and temporary managing conservatorship (TMC) cases. This includes defending parents at the adversarial hearing, working with parents throughout their cases to help manage and complete court ordered services, mediating CPS cases, and litigating to defend parental rights at trial when necessary.
CPS appeals are very challenging due to accelerated deadlines under appellate rules and procedure. Partner Colin Gaffney and JORGESON PITTMAN LLP have handled many CPS appeals and are familiar with the nuances of CPS appeals.
