Child Abuse and Neglect Proceedings

If the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is investigating you over allegations of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse of a child, it is critical to retain an experienced family law attorney. The confidential proceedings can have ominous consequences, up to and including removal of the child for placement in protective services or termination of parental rights. Maintaining your parental rights and visitation privileges requires strong advocacy by a veteran lawyer.

Delinquency Proceedings

The juvenile law system in Illinois is complex and works differently than other courts. It is important to retain an experienced family law attorney if you are faced with termination or suspension of custody because of a child’s delinquent behavior (truancy, criminal offenses). Doug Warlick represents parents and also can act as a legal advocate for a minor child in DCFS cases.

Contact Geneva juvenile law attorney Doug Warlick to arrange a discounted initial consultation to discuss your rights and your options. This is one area of the law in which qualified and experienced legal counsel can be the deciding factor in the legal outcome.
