Juvenile Dependency Defense Attorneys


California Attorneys Protecting Parent’s Rights

At Vincent W. Davis & Associates we advocate vigorously for the rights of parents and guardians in Juvenile Dependency Court.

Our staff has extensive experience in practice areas that matter most to our clients throughout the Southern California metro region.


Parent’s Rights Lawyers – Juvenile Dependency Experts

Our experience makes a vital difference

Our team and staff are led by experience. Vincent W. Davis, the founder and principal attorney of the firm, has more than 22 years of experience defending parents, grand parents, foster parents and other guardians against the claims of Child Protective Services (CPS) and the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). These legal battles take place in special courts called Juvenile Dependency courts where experience is mission-critical. These courts are not operated anything like a traditional courtroom.


Law School is NOT enough to Groom a Lawyer to Represent Kids & Parents

In 2008, Mr. Davis graduated from the prestigious Trial Lawyers College. Mr. Davis was one of 50 lawyers selected nationwide to live, for 22 days, on Gerry Spence’s Thunderhead Ranch just outside of Dubois, Wyoming.


Vincent lived with and was taught by some of America’s greatest trial lawyers, judges and law professors. He learned, from their personal guidance, the winning dynamics and techniques of being a trial lawyer who represents real people. The Trial Lawyers College is dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to our legal system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals; especially the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless and the defenseless, and to protecting the rights of such people from government oppression.

If CPS or DCFS has you in their Cross-Hairs, you need some honest HELP

The Juvenile Dependency courts, in particular, are a mind-field of archaic procedures that are unfairly weighted toward the “state” leaving parents and guardians at the mercy of a big, oft-uncaring, system that will eat you up and spit you out – all the while your child is living and sleeping with utter strangers wondering when you’re coming to save them and bring them home to their familiar surroundings. We can help. From our six offices throughout the Greater Southern California area, Vincent and his hand-packed attorneys will work to find the creative, intelligent solutions you are counting on.


For a free initial consultation with the Offices of Vincent W. Davis & Associates, call Vincent personally, toll free, at 888-506-6810 or contact Vincent by e-mail. Our offices are open 9 am – 7 pm, Monday through Friday, and on weekends by appointment.
