Count On Effective Defense Against Charges Of Child Abuse

Certain criminal offenses are so highly stigmatized that the public may assume guilt based on accusations alone. Child abuse is one such offense. If you were accused of or charged with child abuse or neglect in the Los Angeles area or throughout California, you need to respond quickly and in consultation with an attorney from Zarabi Law.

Our team, led by veteran attorney Elliot Zarabi, offers more than 60 years of combined legal experience. The firm’s practice is primarily focused on criminal defense. Our lawyers are entirely focused on obtaining the most favorable results available for each of our clients.

Combating All Charges And Accusations Of Child Abuse Or Neglect

Our attorneys are ready to help you respond to allegations and charges related to:

  • Child abuse or aggravated child abuse
  • Child neglect
  • Sexual abuse and molestation
  • Child exploitation and child sexual exploitation
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse

It is simply not an option to ignore allegations, and it is generally unwise to assume that you can talk your way out of trouble. Prosecutors and investigative agencies realize that the stakes are high in alleged cases of child abuse, which means they are likely to take a heavy-handed approach with everyone rather than risk being too lenient. You need a defense attorney in your corner at the first sign of trouble. That’s where we come in.

Fighting False Allegations To Protect Your Freedom And Reputation

While good-faith suspicions of child abuse should be reported and investigated, there are far too many cases in which someone speculates based on very little evidence or knowingly makes false allegations.

Scenarios in which false and exaggerated allegations occur include:

  • One parent seeking an advantage over the other in divorce and child custody proceedings
  • Mandatory reporters who file a report at based on the slightest suspicions simply to legally protect themselves (with little regard for how these reports could harm children or their parents)
  • Parents who are angry with one with their child’s teacher, doctor or coach and want to cause legal and professional damage
  • Neighbors reporting the parents living next door due to some personal dispute between the two households

Even when they are completely fictitious, accusations of child abuse can carry extreme legal consequences and are often incredibly damaging to a person’s reputation. Professionals who work with children – such as pediatricians, teachers and coaches – may have their careers jeopardized by false allegations and rumors of an investigation.

Whether you’ve been falsely accused of abusing your own children or someone else’s, our legal team will work tirelessly to expose the truth in order to protect your freedom and preserve your standing in the community.
