About me

Mr. Lounsbery's law practice is devoted primarly to child abuse of all kinds--physical, sexual, mental, and neglect. 

As a leading legal expert in child abuse defense, recognition & reporting, he is regularly invited to speak at statewide conferences & assocations (for lawyers and non-lawyers alike) on California's child abuse laws. 

In addition to representing individuals falsely accused of child abuse in criminal court, Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) hearings, and licensing hearings, he provides online & live training and consulting to California child abuse mandated reporters.
