Attorney John J. Ghidini
It is hard to overstate the importance of the control of information in a DCF case. The attorney needs to control and set the narrative for the case from the start if the attorney wants a positive outcome. What does this mean for the client or the potential client? It means that a client should always speak with an attorney prior to speaking with DCF. In a large number of DCF investigations, it is actually the clients who supply all the necessary information to support the ongoing investigation or worse provide enough evidence for a finding of neglect.
