Child Abuse

Riverside Child Abuse Lawyer

Defending Against Allegations of Child Abuse

Any crime involving a child is considered a serious offense. The prosecution will tenaciously pursue a conviction, even if the individual who reported the alleged crime changes their mind. Charges of child abuse often originate in custody matters when a parent attempts to influence the outcome of the case. A child abuse accusation can have a disastrous impact at a custody hearing and could result in the loss of custody rights and visitation privileges.

If you have been charged with child abuse, contact a Riverside attorney at once for skilled legal advice. A competent lawyer can help prepare an aggressive defense and will protect your constitutional rights.
