Walter Shaw, General Counsel and Founding Lawyer of Shaw Law Firm 3 (S3LF), has found that there is an immediate need to provide legal representation in areas of child protective services (CPS) in the community local.
Often, when a client (parent, parent, and/or adoptive parent) is accused of abuse or neglect by the CPS, the only typical attorney available provided to clients is a court-appointed attorney. The cases in the area of juvenile addiction are unique in themselves. Only a handful of attorneys in the state of California, let alone the local San Bernardino County community, practice it, with Mr. Shaw and his firm being the few.
The area of Juvenile Dependency/CPS Law is so unique and specific that finding attorneys, let alone a qualified Juvenile Dependency/CPS Lawyer, can make it very difficult for a client with little or no knowledge. on what is happening. And, when clients sometimes find an attorney to handle their case, the attorney may often not be fully qualified.
Clients such as parents, relatives and/or foster parents, who are alleged victims in their CPS case, should be provided with more legal options regarding legal representation.
Mr. Shaw and his firm believe that expanding his practice to include juvenile addiction/CPS defense cases will bring great value to the local community.
