Experienced & Compassionate Legal Counsel
Jackson County, CPS Headquarters
Michigan Children’s Protective Services is a government agency and a division of the Department of Health and Human Services. While their mandate is to protect children from abuse and neglect, parents in Jackson County often find CPS investigators hostile and overbearing. If you are being investigated for child abuse or neglect, you need the assistance of a Michigan CPS defense attorney. The attorneys at Cronkright Law have many years of experience helping parents, day care workers and foster parents who find themselves falsely accused. While the protection of children is a noble cause, the primary responsibility for doing that rests with parents. An intact family is the healthiest environment for providing a safe and stable environment for kids. This is true even for families who have had problems before or need services now. Our attorneys are focused on helping families stay together and protecting parental rights.

CPS Defense Lawyers for Jackson, MI Courts
Parents who find themselves defending their parental rights in Jackson, Michigan may have a daunting challenge. Jackson County has one of the most overworked and underfunded court systems in Michigan. The judges who handle neglect petition cases have incredibly full dockets and parents are competing for the time and attention of judges who may seem impatient. Delays between court hearings can cause long periods of separation from your children and long periods of supervised parenting time for you. If you are trying to work with a court-appointed attorney, you may find that your attorney is not exclusively a parent attorney; filling different roles for different cases. At Cronkright Law, we are parent attorneys and we do not accept court appointments. Defending parents is what we do. And we do it every day. We can help you negotiate a court system that some parents find hostile, adversarial and unfair. Throughout Michigan, our attorneys have handled some of the most difficult cases imaginable and preserved parental rights for clients.
While we understand that Children’s Protective Services and the Family Division Courts have important roles to fill, their mistakes can be costly and detrimental to the very children that they are required by law to serve. If you are facing allegations against you regarding any form of child abuse or wrongdoing, it is vital that you reach out to our Jackson County child protective services lawyers immediately. We find that early intervention by skilled parent attorneys helps children and helps parents.
