Criminal Child Abuse or Neglect Cases

Punishments for Child Abuse or Neglect in Nevada are severe and can result in long prison terms. In some cases, a child abuse conviction can result in a sentence of life in prison. Attorneys Mary Brown and Phil Brown are experienced trial lawyers who have extensive experience handling felony cases, including child abuse charges. As former chief prosecutors for the Clark County District Attorney's Office, Mary Brown and Phil Brown understand the complexities of child abuse allegations and will assist you in analyzing the facts of your case and developing the most aggressive strategy possible to defend your family as well as your legal rights.

Child Protective Services (CPS) Cases

In many cases involving child abuse allegations, there is not just a criminal investigation but there is also a CPS investigation. It is frightening and confusing to be facing a CPS investigation, particularly if your children are removed from your home. As a former Chief Prosecutor with the Child Welfare Team at the Clark County District Attorney's Office, attorney Mary Brown understands what families go through when they are thrust into the child welfare system. She is also uniquely qualified to represent your interests in child welfare matters.

In Nevada, CPS has broad authority to remove children from the family home without a warrant and without prior court order if they have cause to believe the children are at risk of harm. However, their power is not unlimited. If CPS removes a child, they must have a court hearing within three (3) days to inform the court of the removal and justify the need for removal to the court. In addition, with absent extraordinary circumstance, the Department of Family Services must make reasonable efforts to preserve and reunify families wherever possible.
