My husband and I were foster parents interested in adopting a child who had been in our care for a while. What had initially looked like a very straightforward foster-adoption placement ended up getting complicated. We feared losing the child in our care. We felt like we needed a lawyer to advocate for us and also help us advocate for our child. We received a recommendation for Evelyn Cox and met with her for a consult. We found her to be direct, honest and efficient so we hired her. Our initial impression of Evelyn remained true throughout the court process- she was very direct, honest, open and efficient. She always kept us updated and was very clear about our roles in the process and what we should and shouldn't do. Most importantly, she was effective and impressive in the courtroom- our adoption will be finalized soon! We couldn't have asked for a better lawyer!

I never thought I'd be writing a review for a CPS attorney. In fact, I thought those who would need to hire such a person would be a real piece of work, and not be deserving of a great defense attorney. I was wrong, and very, very, grateful that I found Ms. Cox, who came highly recommended from my family law attorney.
I was, and still am, going through a nightmare custody battle with my Ex-wife. My Ez-wife actually works in the same building with CPS, and new the the CPS caseworkers that worked our case. The deck was stacked against me, to say the least.
After hiring Ms. Cox, we were able to overturn previous "substantiated" findings, and now they are "unsubstantiated" which is a big deal to my wife and I, who volunteer at our children's schools, and coach their sports teams. Without Ms. Cox, this would not be possible.
Ms. Cox has even helped me with my family law case. In fact, I have had 100% legal and physical custody of my children for over two years, and it would not be possible without her expertise in the courtroom.
Ms. Cox will be very honest with you in her office, and will vow to help you find the justice that you deserve. Then, if and when you go to court, you will she the experience, knowledge, and courtroom manner that is worthy of every penny you spend for her service.
If you are need of a great attorney, don't give up- give Ms. Evelyn A. Cox a call.

I was fortunate enough to be accepted as a client of Evelyn A. Cox. Despite the insurmountable odds of doing so, Ms. Cox was able to get my case (CPS-related) dismissed. I attribute this to her excellent and expert knowledge in her areas of practice as well as knowledge of the processes of the county in which the case originated. I am a professional in another industry so I appreciate her skills and expertise. I am very impressed with the fact she is extremely well informed about the processes and procedures of many jurisdictions. The entire process was very emotional and stressful for me and my family and I felt very reassured with Ms. Cox. After my case was dismissed, Ms. Cox represented me during a CACI hearing with the county CWS. After my experience, I feel a person cannot "win" in these hearings without representation. She was reassuring to my daughter and others who were my witnesses. Although I have not heard of the decision, I felt fortunate to have Ms. Cox as my attorney as she knew the CACI process and provided realistic expectation. Her strong point is definitely trials and asking questions. She was amazing in her questioning. All of my witnesses said she is a great attorney.
During my initial meeting with Ms. Cox, I felt she was upfront about the situation and most important to me, did not make any promises. She has my utmost respect for her sincerity, integrity and honest; something I do not generally associate with law professionals.
I strongly disagree with contrasting reviews and question the competency of the reviewers. In my experience the attorney-client relationship is a two-way street in which both parties need to be involved and accountable. I know for a fact Ms. Cox's actions would not be detrimental to her clients because she is not delusional about the reality of cases. Again, I believe this is due to her upfront manner.
I would absolutely recommend Evelyn A. Cox for all areas in her practice; especially child abuse defense. She is totally worth it.

Evelyn handled my case for me. She was very knowledgeable, to the point, and did the work in a timely manner. Because of Evelyn's dedication and support, I was able to win a very tough/time sensitive case. I will definitely recommend her to others! Thank you so much for all of your hard work Evelyn Cox!

Evenlyn Cox assisted me a couple months ago with child custody proceedings. She was open and straightforward about the process and my rights and I found her to be fair throughout the process. I trust her and would use her again. I would recommend her to others!

My case opened last year. With little time to obtain representation for what was all new to me, and out of sheer desperation I came across the website of Evelyn Cox. I knew the minute I made it to her page, the minute we spoke I made a great choice. She has since been the driving force in my case advocating for myself, my children and my family as a whole. She is really truly a passionate and dedicated attorney seeking justice and really truly looks for what is in the best interest of our children.She has seen us through the biggest storm of our lives and has carried us through what has been the most devastating time for my family and I. Mrs. Cox is well versed, caring, educated, organized, passionate. timely, is thorough with is. I comfortably can say that I would recommend her to anyone in need. She raises the bar so high for child dependency and I'm so humbled to be working with her to date.

In a very difficult case against CPS, Eve represents our family in a complex custody battle with our wonderful grandkids. Though the challenges in our case have puzzled most attorneys, Eve by far is the most knowledgeable attorney in the court room with the most experience and zest! She is awesome! Glad she's on our side. At at time when we really needed the best, we were so lucky to find Eve and will be forever thankful for her tenacity and knowledge about the legal system. You rock Eve!

Evelyn has been such a guide to our family in our case. She was actually recommended to our family by another lawyer. She knows the Social Services, CPS and Family Court systems inside and out! Right from the beginning, Evelyn gave us all the information we needed and none that we didn't. As other have mentioned, Evelyn doesn't sugar coat anything. She tells you exactly what to expect and also what to do/say/prepare to be ready on your end. With two children's lives on the line, Eve took our case knowing it was gonna be a long and hard fought case. She is patient and efficient with all communications, in court and out. If you need help with a legal problem, especially in family court, Eve is definitely the lawyer you want to hire. She is the best at what she does.

After finding myself embroiled in a sticky CPS mess, I went looking for a lawyer. I made one phone call, explained my situation and was instantly referred to Ms. Cox. Between that call and my first meeting with Ms. Cox, I had my first court hearing where I explained that I had recently contacted a lawyer, but had not had time to meet with her. The judge was concerned that I had hired someone not familiar with the system, but as soon as I mentioned Ms. Cox, even the opposing counsel indicated to the judge that I had made a good choice in lawyers. She was there every step, she was fair, respectful, knowledgeable and, when necessary, not afraid to raise the BS flag. I could not have gotten through this without her.
