DIRECT REPRESENTATION OF CHILDREN

“As a former foster child, I spent nearly a decade in foster care until I aged out at 21 years old. I remember having to figure out how to make a resume, apply for jobs, submit college applications, and look for apartments—all while figuring out what I’m going to do when I age out of foster case without my case planner, foster parent, or foster care agency

there to fall back on. It was scary. There were many unknowns, but I planned, stay focused, and got it done. This is what I offer to our adolescents and young adults clients—lived experience. I’ve been there. I get it. Let’s get it done for you too.” Arique Dross III, Managing Attorney.

WHAT CAN THE DROSS LAW FIRM DO FOR YOU?

While the majority of court proceedings are initiated by an adult or a government agency, decisions made during or at the conclusion of cases may affect the wellbeing and rights of a child too. Whether it’s a court deciding which parent a child should reside with in a custody dispute, services a child needs in a child neglect, abuse, or foster care related proceeding, or a child’s position on visitation, and so much more—a child has a voice too. A voice that should be heard and zealously advocated for just as an adult would be.
