My thoughts about Attorney Seaver. . .
Hello to all those reading my review. I’d like to publicly thank Attorney Kevin Seaver (https://www.seaverdcflawyer.com) for his assistance to myself and my family during a DCF investigation. No one really knows the rippling negative effects of a DCF case, until it happens to them. An innocent comment from one of my children to an individual set off my case. My husband and I tried to educate ourselves about a state investigation and we were terrified of what we read and watched. The possibility of our children being taken from us for a comment kept us up at night worrying. My husband decided that we needed a lawyer and that this matter was just too dangerous for us to handle on our own. We contacted Attorney Seaver about what we were experiencing. During my husband’s very first phone call, he took the time to have detailed discussion with him and I. His experience dealing with DCF was recognized right away by the questions he asked, the answers he provided to us, and the reassurance to us that he was going to fight hard for our case. After contacting him we both felt like we had a very skilled professional on our side and it was a huge relief. Attorney Seaver provided us with excellent legal service during our ordeal. He prevented the state from digging into unrelated areas, directed us on issues and documentation to obtain, and helped us win our case with DCF. Despite being cleared by DCF, I found that their investigation had major consequences that extend far beyond. Those details I’ll keep to myself. If you find DCF in your life, do yourself a favor and call Attorney Seaver.

Highly recommend
Kevin Seaver is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner when DCF is in your life. It’s unheard of for a lawyer of his status to provide a flat rate in terms of fees for legal counsel. Doesn’t charge hourly, it’s a flat rate. If he charged hourly, he would make far more money. But it’s not about money for Kevin. He actually cares; he gives families who can’t afford attorneys the opportunity to obtain legal representation they could not ever otherwise. He truly cares about the families he works with, and takes time out of his day to always make sure he is in contact with his clients to answer any questions they have, or to provide updates. He goes above and beyond, he abides by ethics at the highest level. He is never misleading and always straightforward and upfront. He values the truth and wants to help families he represent when DCF is involved and should not be. He cares about the entire family unit, and is always kind and accommodating. Hiring attorney Seaver was the best decision my family ever made when DCF became involved in our lives, and wanted to play games and manipulate us. He knows the law and uses it to best protect you and your family. Never passes judgment, and always helps reassure his clients while providing the best legal advice one could obtain. Attorney Seaver has protected our family from DCF, and we are forever grateful as it is rare to ever find a lawyer as exceptional as he is.

Outstanding
Attorney Seaver was professional, sincere and sets a new standard of excellence. When the news of an investigation came, and upon learning of the seriousness of this, life came to a halt as well as many sleepless nights when learning that the most precious gifts in my life, my grandchildren, were in jeopardy. But after speaking with Attorney Seaver, he came in and immediately made us feel better and took control of the situation. Attorney Seaver took the time to answer all of our questions, guide us and basically held our hand and walked us from beginning to a successful ending. Attorney Seaver worked tirelessly and fought for us and every step of the way as if he was in the battle for himself. If you ever are in this situation, which I hope you never are, but if you ever are, there is no one better to contact other than Attorney Seaver.

Dcf investigation
Atty. Kevin Seaver and her office provided excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and personal attention to all details of my case. Kevin Seaver attitude to the work he does not only saved my money at closing the case earlier than expected , it also helped me to avoid other problems. Normally, i don’t even think about such problems ahead. Kevin knows them all and may foresee them, he is experienced enough to prevent them, and to give you the right advice on time, before you make your decision. He was very pro active in my case and he is not the type of lawyer that works for money - he works for the people! He will advocate and protect the legal rights of his client and will go above and beyond to ensure that his clients rights are protected. The best thing about him is that he is reachable and has open communication- being in this tough situation it was really nice of him to check on you making sure everything is ok. What a phenomenal Attorney. I can’t thank him enough for helping me with my case. I also admire how he present himself to dcf- He has this strong personality that so powerful! I have so far met two other lawyer but where playing mind games with me, didn’t help but made me confuse and this has made me doubt lawyers but not Kevin Seaver Kevin is the most incredible lawyer and person I have ever come across. He is completely dedicated to helping his clients, he is always ready to fight for you and what is right. If you didn't choose Kevin as your lawyer you are making a huge mistake, there is no other I would ever have on my side but Kevin Seaver! So, If you get caught in a situation like mine falsely accuse by your spouse to gain leverage of divorce and custody “ Kevin Seaver” is the perfect Attorney to hire and 100 % You will never regret it!

51A Daycare provider investigation
Hi, My name is Kate. I am a daycare provider. Recently my staff accused me falsely for child abuse. As they were scared they will be accused for it by my parents. But the truth was totally different. I hired Kevin once DCF raided my Daycare and involved police in it. I was totally in shock and took this situation gravely. Kevin not just gave me advices but also kept me informed about the investigation and accusation made in police report that he effortless got it out for me. He and his team is excellent in what they do? And I would recommend all the daycare providers to keep Kevin in mind as he is the best attorney in Massachusetts for handling DCF investigation.He even got my case to be unsupported which was a huge relief for me, my family and my business. Thank you Kevin for getting me out it.

The real deal
I don’t think people really understand that with Attorney Seaver this is not a 9-to-5 job for him. He lives and breathes for his clients around the clock. His top priority is helping people regain their lives while dealing with all of DCFS tricks. This is something he gets a lot of joy and satisfaction from. This is a lifestyle choice that he’s made to make sure that people have some hope in their lives and are able to function on a day-to-day basis while being investigated by DCF. Under all his confidence and bravado which certainly lends itself to defeating DCF… He’s a very humble man who has come from humble beginnings…he relates well to everyone…from very poor backgrounds to people who have extensive resources. This is my second time hiring Kevin and it never crossed my mind to call anyone else. I knew he would take on my case like it was happening to him personally. This was my second Xmas I’ve had DCF back in my life and Attorney Seaver was truly the only Xmas present I wanted..someone who would protect my family and really that is the only true thing that matters in this world. If you can muster to find any silver lining in being investigated by DCF it would be having Attorney Seaver envelope you in his cloak of protection. He is the real deal. He is an amazing attorney and will fight to the end for you.

A Needed Expert
If you ever get involved with DCF, your first call should be to Attorney Kevin Seaver an expert in DCF law. From that initial phone call, that day, Kevin already began working diligently on our case. Kevin worked tirelessly for us, gave us his personal cell phone to call anytime and we received calls from Kevin on the weekends, and he helped us win the most important case of our life. What makes Attorney Seaver unique, and, in my opinion, the best attorney to assist you, is that his entire practice is devoted to cases involving DCF compared to other attorneys, where DCF cases most likely may only be one area of law in which they practice. Not only Attorney Seaver, but his amazing team was there for us during our investigation and worked hard behind the scenes and guided us step by step, offering invaluable insight and guidance from our initial phone call to winning our case. Attorney Seaver and his team truly deserves earned a 5 star rating.

Serious Allegations of Children Sexual Abuse are reversed
I went through real hard situation in my life for past 3 years. But today it is the best day in my life and I have a chance to see my children again. During my divorce I was accused of my children’s sexual abuse. I have two daughters 3 and 4 at the time when I was accused. I was accused of raping them. Accusations came out of nowhere as complete surprise. I only thought before it happens in movies and books, although I was an actor in that scene now. I was in really, really dark place, with potential criminal persecution hanging over me as a sword for allegations which I haven’t done. It was such a shock to hear in the family court. Everyone looked at me like I am a monster. I was innocents; however the crooked system makes you guilty before your innocence is proven. All I did was trying to be a father for my children and not to abandon them. I was punished for my desire to be a father. I hired Attorney Seaver twice. He won the first appeal. Unfortunately, the second accusations came. I had to fight again. The DCF didn’t investigate my case at all, even didn’t meet with me. They their fighting for their wrong decision. Mr. Seaver went with toothcomb trough every instance of my life and assembled team of experts. They reviewed thousands of photos, videos, text messages, personality tests, documents. He devised the defense strategy and made arguments in my defense both verbal and written. To go into court with DCF without a lawyer is the same as farmer going against a well armed bandit in wild wide west. There is no second chance. He and his team won both appeals to prove my innocence. I’ve never been so happy. In order to fight against injustice you have to have experienced and knowledgeable expert lawyer with the edge and talant. Attorney Seaver has God given ability. The news of positive decision in my case were especially touching for me because I was mobilized for overseas duty with the US Military as member of US NAVY Seabees for one year. I am writing this on the eve of the New Year 2022 Dec 31. I wish Everyone to Have a Happy New Year, live in peace and have love in life, not war.

Response from Kevin Seaver January 3, 2022
So sorry you “went through a real hard situation “ with DCF during your assessment and later two Fair Hearings whereby it was alleged you sexually abused your two daughters twice. It was our extreme pleasure to fight these bogus, false fraudulent allegations for you against DCF. No one should have to go thru 3 years of DCF persecutions . The accusations came “out of nowhere” and like in most instances were a “complete surprise”. I am also so sorry you had to be in such a “dark place” with potential “criminal charges” hanging over your head. This “shock” and feeling like a “monster “ is and was so unfair. Thank you for “highly recommending the law office of Kevin Patrick Seaver to fight for your children” on both appeals. I thank you for your phone call from the Middle East on New Years Eve. It brought tears to my eyes to know the impact and difference this has made in your lie and especially your children. I so wish you blue skies and much harmony, wisdom and time with your daughters this year. Again, thank you for the kind praise and belief in me and my “team”!!!

Attorney Kevin was very attentive, strategic, and a great advisor every step of the way to guide us through a DCF matter. I highly recommend him.

Call Attorney Seaver
When DCF became involved with our family we immediately knew that we had to protect our children and seek legal assistance. Attorney Seaver was the first to return our call and spoke at length with us, easing our minds. He is incredibly knowledgeable about DCF and the methods they use. He walked us through the process and was available anytime we needed to speak with him. Having DCF involved with our family was one of the most terrifying events we have ever experienced. Attorney Seaver was there to answer all of our questions and lead us in the right direction. I only hope more families who have the misfortune of DCF involvement reach out to Attorney Seaver and hire him. He is a one of a kind, true, honest individual who cares deeply and protects his clients from DCF.

Thank you for your kind words and for your review! I am glad you were able to walk through your DCF process with no stress and with ease of mind.

I wish you well moving forward with your family and I thank you again for choosing us to help you with your DCF issue!

Just Do It!
Unfortunately, I had to call Attorney Kevin Seaver due to retaliation of a tenant at a scattered site shelter I was placed in. She left drug paraphernalia in our shared bathroom where my 4 and 6 year old found it. After being reported by myself, along with the backing of the first floor tenant and next door neighbors, who had also witnessed her intoxicated behavior, she called DCF on each of our families. It was pure retaliation however we all now have to go through the process of DCF investigation. With all that said, Attorney Weaver gave me a free consultation. He asked very detailed questions to better suit my families needs; Covered DCF processes and stayed in touch even after knowing that because I lived in a shelter, I couldn't afford representation. His heart for what he does outweighs his knowledge, and by our conversation, it's pretty impressive. Thank you Mr. Weaver for who you are, not just what you do! Urgently recommend for any consultation and/or representation. Ms. Grace

Gave Us Confidence
As a parent, our number one job in life is to protect our children. Unfortunately, this situation was outside of my control. I felt helpless. I felt like I could not protect my child against the injustice of DCF’s false narrative and “it is what it is” attitude. We were referred to Attorney Seaver and he has restored our hope of having a fighting chance to tell our side of the story. He and his team are so dedicated to helping us. They answer all of our never-ending questions while constantly assuring us that they are fighting for us and our community. As a parent, I am now able to breathe a little easier knowing that we have such an amazing team behind us and I am hopeful that we will be victorious in this matter thanks to Attorney Seaver.

Highly recommend Attorney Seaver
Highly recommend Attorney Seaver and his team. When we received the call from DCF that someone had made a claim against us we were shocked, confused, scared and at a complete loss. We sought advice and were referred to Atty Seaver and we’re so grateful we were. It was clear from the start that Atty Seaver has extensive knowledge about DCF. But more than just having the knowledge, he was able to convey to us exactly what we needed to know. He was so patient and took time to explain the whole process to us, walked us through step by step, and answered all our questions. He even made time to speak with us in the evening, truly going out of his way to ensure we were informed and ready, and helped put our minds at ease. He and his assistant Frankly stayed with us through the entire process and got the charge dismissed. We couldn’t have asked for better service, thank you Atty Seaver and Frankly for fighting for our family!

After false allegations were made against us, I hired Attorney Seaver because we had no previous interactions with DCF and really didn’t know what to expect. He did a great job of explaining the interview process and always took my call when I had questions, even going as far giving us his personal cell phone number. His office was diligent in providing the investigator with information to conduct her investigation, such that our case was quickly found unsupported and we could get on with our lives.

Attorney Kevin Seaver and his staff went above and beyond when defending my family from Massachusetts DCF. From our first conversation he put me at ease and calmed my nerves. Because he specializes exclusively in DCF it made me confident that I could trust him to protect me and my children. In the end DCF closed our case and we didn't lose our kids to foster care. Attorney Seaver was worth every penny!

Exceptional DFC Lawyer
Giving my full recommendation to Kevin Seaver who is a virtuous lawyer. He truly cares about his clients, he took time to get to know me and my background while giving me legal advice. He answered my calls (called me as well) at night, on weekends and holidays, WOW. Kevin also advised me on how the legal system works and gave me advice on how to deal with lawyers going forward with my child custody case. What an incredible human being. If you want the best in MA, here he is!

Stellar service and support!
We began working with Kevin Seaver over the summer regarding a false claim of negligence and emotional/physical abuse of our teenage daughter. She has been diagnosed with mental health disorders and legal blindness, which prevents her from doing what normal teenagers (almost adult) do. The false allegation was that we (her biological mother and father) had abused her physically as a child and were actively emotionally abusing her presently in that we prevented her from doing what she wanted to do, and admonished her for her disabilities. Our daughter also made false allegations about living in poor conditions where drugs and alcohol were prevalent. These allegations were blatantly false. We later learned our daughter was misdiagnosed and was being treated with a heavy dose medication that caused her to perceive an alternate reality. She literally would think that we were screaming at her even though we were not even in the room or while we were sleeping at night. The medication also had significant deleterious effects to her own sleep patterns and she was unable to take care of herself. She submitted a false allegation to a mandated reporter. DCF immediately opened a case for her but determined that the threat was not urgent after evaluating her living conditions. When we found out our daughter filed false allegation against us, we sought out attorneys. We knew we had to protect our daughter and ourselves. We didn’t want this negative outcome to impact our daughter. We also didn’t want a negative outcome to impact our careers and our jobs. We found Kevin Seaver, Esq. online and immediately identified his superior skill in handling DCF cases. He agreed to take on our case. Attorney Kevin Seaver and team were incredibly supportive. They were available all the time, and diligent in their follow-up with DCF. Attorney Seaver and his team handled all the paperwork, the gathering of documentation, the review of the legal requirements and steps, and was the point of contact to our DCF case manager. The DCF case manager seemed disinterested in throwing out the case on lack of merit and kept the case going. Attorney Seaver was persistent in trying to find every angle to unsupport this false allegation. And that’s exactly what we received. As you can imagine, we were delighted and overjoyed that Attorney Seaver was able to protect our whole family. He is a lawyer beyond the skill of all lawyers in this realm. I’ve been involved with other lawyers and Attorney Seaver is one of the most trusted attorneys I have ever met. He made us feel welcome when no one else could. Attorney Seaver is an honest, caring, and dutiful human being. He knew exactly how to handle this case. Putting it simply, if you need an attorney to handle your false DCF allegations, look no further than Kevin Seaver, Esq. and team. You can rest assured that your chances of overcoming the often aggressive and uncaring approach for DCF will be well handled. We can now move on with our lives and focus on enjoying every moment together as a family. Thank you for reading this – we hope that this review helps you feel assured you are making the right choice with Attorney Kevin Seaver. Thank you Kevin Seaver!
