How a Lawyer Can Help Abused Adopted Children

When adoption agencies are negligent, we fight for justice

You're a member of an adoptive family hurt by the child placed with you. Or maybe you're related to a child who was adopted and now you fear that the child is being neglected or abused. Either way, you want answers. The dedicated adoption abuse and negligence attorneys at The Deratany Firm can help you get them and help you every step of the way.

Our child abuse attorneys have extensive experience handling these complicated cases. We know when we aren't getting the whole story from adoption agencies. We also know how to get the facts and demand that action be taken to protect the rights of abused children.

You may have already been in contact with the adoption agency and asked them to look into it. But they may have told you they don't know anything about it. Or maybe they said they'd get back to you, but never did. When children or family members are getting hurt, that kind of response is not good enough. And that's why we want to fight for you and demand action.

Our attorneys hold adoption agencies accountable

Adoptive families have a right to know a child's background and full history before adopting them. Every child deserves a loving and supportive home. But parents need to know if the child they're adopting has behavioral issues due to a history of abuse or neglect. Otherwise, parents or other family members could get hurt or be at risk of serious injury themselves.

Adoption agencies know the risks and dangers families face when adopting a child. And these agencies need to carefully determine whether they're doing the right thing by placing a child with a family. Adoption agencies need to conduct thorough background checks. They need to follow the rules and regulations. Otherwise, adopted children may become the victims of abuse or victimize the families who adopt them.

Our attorneys at The Deratany Firm understand how the system works. That's why we have such a strong track record of success. We know what evidence matters and how to put all that information together into a strong legal case.
