Helping Families Stay Together
When a neighbor, relative or anonymous stranger files a report of alleged child abuse or neglect with the police or the New York Department of Social Services, the accused parent(s) or other parties need immediate legal representation. That's because in New York City, allegations of child abuse or neglect are taken very seriously by the local law enforcement and state child welfare agencies.
At The Mandel Law Firm, we represent individuals and couples in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and in Nassau and Westchester counties who have been accused of child abuse or neglect and are facing child removal proceedings. Our experienced attorneys work rapidly to protect our clients' rights and keep families from being torn apart by the very bureaucracy designed to protect them.

Fighting False Allegations of Child Abuse or Neglect
Once an allegation of child abuse, child neglect, domestic abuse or endangerment has been made, the government will almost certainly take swift action. The Department of Social Services operates under a mandate to actively and diligently investigate such reports of abuse and will err on the side of caution to ensure the safety of the child.
Unfortunately, once the wheels are set in motion, it can be extraordinarily difficult to prevent temporary removal of your child. At The Mandel Law Firm, our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the system and can work efficiently to forestall any precipitous action, whenever possible. If your children have been removed from your custody due to a false allegation of abuse, we will fight to have them returned to your care as quickly as possible.
