When a parent requests the assistance of our lawyers after having had a child unjustly removed by the DYP or after being informed the DYP is about to take protective measures, we listen to him or her carefully. If we believe ourselves that the child will be safe at home, then we take out our entire legal arsenal to remedy this terrible injustice.
There are countless cases where our team of youth protection lawyers have successfully fought to bring back children who have been uprooted without valid reason from their parents. Our lawyers engage in incisive cross-examination of DYP social workers in order to shed light on their misunderstanding of the file, when this is the case. We are not going to court to make new friends.
Our DYP lawyers have defended families who have had babies removed soon after birth, families of young children and also parents of teenagers. One of our lawyers was even asked to work for the DYP after a trial against them because of her performance in court.
