At Whitbeck Cisneros McElroy PC we believe the most important aspect of family law is issues related to children. Our attorneys not only have families of their own, but have experience in the resources and services available in the local community to fully investigate and effectively litigate child custody matters.
Our attorneys have litigated hundreds of cases involving custody and visitation for minor children ranging in age from infancy to late teenage years. We also have extensive experience in handling custody cases where one parent seeks to relocate to another state, cases involving parental alienation and cases involving the custodial rights of grandparents and other persons of interest.
Our attorneys can not only assist you in the traditional family law issues involved in all custody cases, but we have experience in dealing with issues in such areas as mental illness/substance abuse, child and teen issues, children with special needs, and school choice and other educational issues. We have an attorney who is a professor of mental illness law at a distinguished law school, who formerly served as a judge for hearings to commit mentally ill individuals and who is affiliated with mental illness advocacy groups. Our attorneys also have experience in school choice issues, special needs education and dealing with local school boards and school personnel. Moreover, our attorneys are trained as and serve as Guardians ad litem for children and have extensive experience in most, if not all, legal matters involving children.
In addition, our attorneys are also experienced in areas of spousal and child physical and/or mental abuse and child sexual abuse cases. Our attorneys have not only aggressively prosecuted cases involving these sensitive issues, but have also represented individuals accused of such actions in family law and criminal cases.
