Washington State Child Protective Services
Gary A. Preble, Attorney at Law
Many people think that Child Protective Services is the friend of children and the family. Unfortunately, families that have come into contact with CPS often feel differently. While there are some good caseworkers, most caseworkers seem more interested in exerting their power over the family than they are in helping people.
The important thing to remember when dealing with CPS workers is this:
You need to THINK one way, and ACT another.
An Aggressive Advocate for Parents' Rights…
"The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis—1928
From his law offices in Olympia, Washington, attorney Gary A.Preble represents parents and families from throughout the state of Washington in matters involving Washington State Child Protective Services agencies.
One should always treat a CPS worker with deference and respect, but until and unless you have a real basis for believing otherwise— do not trust them or expect that they will treat you in the same way . Even in cases of false accusations of child abuse, caseworkers will often not treat you fairly. You will be treated as guilty until you can prove otherwise.
If you are currently under investigation by CPS, it is wise to be aware of the tremendous power this agency has concerning your children and that the laws are often on their side. It is also wise, in any matters involving the CPS, to hire an attorney who is experienced in dealing with CPS and is not afraid to aggressively defend your rights in court and with CPS staff.
