Fighting The Charges To Protect Your Family

Because children are among the most vulnerable members of our society, they are vigorously protected by the law. Additionally, law enforcement officers take allegations of child abuse or neglect very seriously, often acting quickly to protect a child they believe to be a victim. Unfortunately, they don't always get it right — and when they are wrong, both the child and the parent suffer.

Here at The Pilkington Law Firm, PLLC, in Tulsa, we protect parents who have been accused of child abuse or neglect. We know that this may be a stressful time for you and your family, but we can help you navigate the process and work toward a favorable resolution.

What Is Neglect And Abuse?

According to Oklahoma law, child abuse encompasses any actual harm or threatened harm to the child's physical or mental safety or health. Child neglect is the failure of a parent or person responsible for the child to provide basic necessities such as food, clothing, shelter and medical care.

Child abuse and neglect are rarely straightforward cases. The rules leave room for interpretation, and there are often other explanations for a child's injuries. As your law firm, we will make sure you understand the charges against you while protecting you from the serious consequences of a conviction.
