Crimes Against Children
Defending Child Sex Abuse Charges
Divorce and parental disputes often contribute to false child abuse allegations. Unfortunately, family, friends and society often jump to the conclusion that criminal charges equal guilt. You could suffer undue social stigma and other emotional issues due to false charges. These charges can also affect your child custody and visitation rights.

Tenacious Defense Against All Child Sex Crimes
It is important to contact our law firm immediately if you are approached by law enforcement concerning sex abuse allegations. Prosecutors rarely negotiate these cases, and police involvement without an attorney protecting your rights can create severe consequences.
I understand and have in-depth experience investigating the accusations. I look at the time, manner and place that the child made his or her first, second and subsequent disclosures. I understand that children’s memories can be enhanced or changed easily. Altered memories could be the result of:
- Who questioned the child
- Family members’ reactions to accusations
- Parents coaching their children
- Improper questioning techniques or procedures
I will bring in the appropriate experts to evaluate the allegations. These experts will review several factors in context to the child’s life to support your defense. Mental health, sexual abuse and memory experts can examine:
- Witnesses who had access to the child
- The child’s diary or other writings
- Computer files
- School records
- Medical reports
My diligent investigation is designed to protect your rights at every stage of your case, as well as minimize the consequences of your state and federal charges.
I Am On Your Side. Period.
