At Hyde and Swigart, we believe that children are the most vulnerable among us, and we proudly protect the rights of children and families. We represent children who have been the victims of physical and sexual abuse in foster care, and children and adults who have been abused by clergy. We also represent children who have suffered from:
- Human Trafficking
- Physical Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Child Neglect
- Abusive Head Trauma
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Product Liability Injuries
- Failure to Report Child Abuse
- Daycare and School-related Injuries
- Wrongful Death
We also believe that families have certain rights that are all too often violated by governmental agencies. We represent parents who have had children removed by Child Welfare Services without a proper Protective Custody Warrant. We help foster children who are not in proper placements, languishing in institutions, not receiving proper education, and refused sibling visitation. We use Federal Law to hold people, and government agencies including Child Welfare Services, responsible when they fail the very children they swore to protect.
Are you a clergy sexual abuse survivor? Those institutions that shuffled predators from one location to another, gaining the trust of parents and giving access to children, must be held responsible! At Hyde and Swigart we fight for abuse survivors and expose the predators so that they cannot harm any more children.
