Experienced Essex County Child Abuse Defense Lawyers
Child abuse is one of the more difficult cases that an attorney can handle in Essex County. In addition to prison time, a defendant found guilty of child abuse may also lose their parental rights. Thus, an aggressive approach is often needed to fight these allegations. The Essex County Child Abuse Defense Lawyers of the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq will protect you and fight back against the police, the prosecutor and DYFS.
Essex County DYFS Attorneys
Criminal Child abuse charges may also constitute an action to terminate parental rights brought by DYFS. While related to the criminal cases, the DYFS case is completely separate. In fact, the case will be heard in the Essex County Family Court, not in the main court house. If your criminal defense lawyer is not experienced with DYFS cases, you may have to get two lawyers. To save costs and to have a more focused approach, the lawyers of the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq can handle both the criminal charges and the DYFS case.
