It can be terrifying to learn that a Dependency and Neglect petition has been filed against you. This means Department for Children, Youth, and their Families (DCYF) believes that a child is not being properly cared for at home, and either want to supervise your children in your home or remove your children from your home. Parents charged with dependency, abuse, or neglect are entitled to be represented by counsel to help ensure that your children are not take away from you and placed in foster care, or if they have already been taken, to get them back home to you.

What can I expect?

The court may assign a Guardian-Ad Litem or “GAL” to look out for the best interests of your children. You will still need your own attorney to represent your interest, to make sure your family stays together, and your children are protected.

It’s best to hold off talking to the GAL or human services workers until you have Attorney Roderman working for you. I can help explain the situation, offer legal strategies, and speak on your behalf with the court and human services. I will do everything possible to protect your family.

Dependency and Neglect Petitions are sometimes brought together with criminal charges. This can be even more complex and can move quickly. Luckily, Attorney Roderman also handles criminal cases and he can represent you in both cases with a well-coordinated defense.

What can be done?

Empower yourself with strong legal representation. I can help you understand your legal rights, guide you through the proceedings, including how to conduct yourself at court hearings, and aggressively represent you in court. I can counsel you on actions and things you can do to recover custody of your child again.

I understand how frightening it is to think about the possibility of losing your parental rights. Dependency and Neglect cases are complicated and stressful. But I am here to advocate on your behalf. Dependency and Neglect Attorney in Florida, Glenn Roderman has the expertise and experience to fight for your family.

I recently was in the classic wrong place at the wrong time scenario. I have used Glenn in the past and did not hesitate one second to contact him when everything went down. Within 3 weeks he already had my case dismissed! Glenn is the real deal and to be quite frank he is a beast of an attorney! If you are facing any legal issues pick up the... phone and call Glenn Roderman. From the first phone call I promise you will feel a sense of peace knowing that you have the best of the best in your corner! I cannot thank Glenn enough for everything he has done for me!read more

I HIRED GLENN RODERMAN TO HANDLE A LEGAL ISSUE. FROM THE FIRST FREE CONSULT HE OFFERED OVER THE PHONE, TO OUR FIRST IN PERSON MEETING, I FELT AT EASE AND KNEW I WAS IN GOOD HANDS. GLENN OFFERS DECADES OF VALUABLE LEGAL WISDOM. HIS VAST EXPERIENCE IN EITHER REPRESENTING THE PLAINTIFF OR DEFENDANT MAKES HIM VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXPERIENCED ON... BOTH SIDES OF ANY CASE. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH GLENN. HE WAS HONEST, PATIENT, COMPASSIONATE, CARING, PROFESSIONAL, ASSERTIVE AND HARD WORKING. HE MADE HIMSELF AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS/CONCERNS DAY AND NIGHT, GAVE UP HIS WEEKENDS WHEN NEEDED AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OFFERED PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT THROUGHOUT MY CASE. I WRITE THIS GOOGLE REVIEW TO SAVE ANYONE FROM HIRING ANY OTHER ATTORNEY OTHER THAN GLENN RODERMAN. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY, A MORE DEDICATED, SEASONED, LOYAL AND HONORABLE LAWYER CANNOT BE FOUND!read more
