Child endangerment and neglect charges will have a serious and far-reaching impact. While protecting the safety of a child is of the utmost importance, a misunderstanding or one person’s rather extreme definition of neglect can immediately place a parent on the defensive. You may find yourself fighting for your child and having to defend your parenting skills.

If you are facing child endangerment charges, perception can be just as damaging as a conviction. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney if you’re facing child endangerment charges, no matter how preposterous or outrageous they may seem.

Although it can be argued that children are safer than they have ever been before, parents may actually be more vulnerable than ever to unfounded child endangerment charges. These allegations can tear families apart and forced the children to live in foster care while their parent proves their parental rights and suitability. Don’t let baseless accusations ruin your life and destroy your family. If you are facing child endangerment charges in Atlantic City or the surrounding communities, contact an experienced attorney today who will fight for you and your children.
