Juvenile Dependency Defense Lawyers in Southern California

Any mom or dad would agree that there is nothing more valuable than ones children, and the fear of losing a child to a county Social Worker is the worst possible fear. More crippling than “fear” is coming home form work to find your child not home and a form on the door informing you that the county went to your child’s school and stealthily took your child – perhaps because of an anonymous complaint that you were witnessed spanking your child or accusations that you are a drug user. Yes! That happens… All the time. If you are EVER contacted by CPS and you have a hint that they are looking at you, it is critical that you CALL US. Unfortunately, things that you might do during or following your first encounter with a CPS social worker can set the wheels in motion for them to swoop in and turn your world upside down.

Vincent W. Davis is THE Juvenile Dependency Lawyer in Southern California

Vincent Davis helps families. If your child has been removed from your home and has been placed in foster care by Child Protective Services (CPS) or Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), because you have been accused of child abuse, neglect, drug use, etc, we may be able to help your family reunite. If you want to get custody of a grandchild or other family member who is currently placed in foster care we are here for you as well.

Juvenile Dependency and Child’s Courts are Unique!

There is no one more passionate and involved in Juvenile Dependency cases in Southern California than Vincent W. Davis. Vincent, like many other lawyers, had no idea there was such a thing as a Dependency Court where the fate of kids and their parents or guardians were exclusively battled-over every day – until one day 20-some years ago. At that time, Vincent Davis was a young lawyer working for a big firm, and out of curiosity took a sick day and went to a Juvenile Dependency Court and sat there mesmerized for the entire day.


Vincent witnessed parents, grand parents, and even foster parents who were emotionally crippled by the processes that had befallen them. He also couldn’t help but see that some of the lawyers representing the parents seemed a bit “lost” and out of their element as if this court room were different than any other they had ever stepped foot in. In fact, Juvenile Dependency Court is unlike any other traditional court! These special courts have procedures and processes a bit alien to any other court: so much so that many courts insist that lawyers who want to represent parents sign a “Certificate of Competency” document stating that they have Juvenile Dependency Court experience such as required in Ventura County Juvenile Dependency Court.


Vincent was hooked -he found his “calling!” There was no looking back! He decided right then and there to become an expert in Juvenile Dependency law so he could stand beside these grieving parents, grand parents, foster parents and other caregivers whose families had been torn apart by many of the people pointing fingers at them in that courtroom. Where there might be one or two parents — often like deer in the headlights — the county usually had several, cool, calm, well-dressed, credentialed, court-recognized professionals lined up against them. The teeter-totter was not fairly balanced.
