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.

If you are considering hiring Mr. Roderman, well you might want to read this because I’m not easily impressed. First of all, Mr. Roderman is exceptionally talented and has empathy for his clients. He’s well known and respected by prosecutors, judges and law enforcement. He actually was a judge in Davie. His law Knowledge is on point! He... represented my son (a minor in a high profile case) and Glenn stopped a direct file and worked directly with prosecutors to dismiss all charges in a matter of months. My son was charged when he shouldn’t of been by police in the first place (yes a genuinely innocent young man). Also, please take what I’m about to mention in to serious consideration. DO NOT ever rely on a public defender. I have nothing against public defenders however, you will not get the attention or the advocating needed like when you have private counsel. I’ve seen it for myself. Hire Glenn! He’s the REAL DEAL! Glenn if you are reading this, I appreciate you and will always remember what you’ve done for my son. Thanks again and always wishing you greatness.. Joe F.read more

Thank you for all the extremely over and above attention and dedication that you gave to our case. You accomplished a miracle outcome. We will be forever grateful to you for all the long hours and hard work you put in for us. Your assistant Norris Kimble was very kind and helpful to us.

Mr. Roderman is a professional. The outcome of my case was exactly what we discussed during our first meeting. Glenn was very patient and his staff is very polite and knowledgeable. His service is exceptional, and we reached an adjudication after fighting the case for nearly two years. His counsel is worth every cent. Thank you Glenn for your hard... work.read more
