Practice Area: Child custody
Outcome: Child returned and custody awarded to the innocent parent
Description: Divorced parents bitterly fought for custody of their daughter. One parent hid with the child out of state for more than 2 years. When we finally located and succeeded in bringing the child back, she was an emotional wreck. After 4+ years, the child continues to heal emotionally but will bear the emotional scars of her parents' conflict for a long time, if not forever. As court appointed Guardian ad Litem, I represented the child's best interests in this ongoing case.
