We have represented a wide variety of clients in regard to DCFS cases and DCFS-related issues for many years in the Southern Illinois and Central Illinois regions. Sometimes these cases involve criminal implications or the possible loss of a professional license. Sometimes there are allegations of sexual molestation and/or child endangerment. Sometimes our clients believe the DCFS allegedly abuses its power if not tries to reconstruct and/or relocate family members which can be contrary to the wishes of certain family members.
