This client brought us a tough case. She had: 1) a prior DYFS case which she won, 2) a bad drug test, 3) she was arrested for having drugs in her car and 4) she called a hotline and indicated that she had overdosed on drugs. As part of our strategy, our team of tough, smart NJ DYFS defense lawyers pushed for a quick fact finding hearing. Despite the difficult facts, we were confident in our position and we wanted to show DYFS that we were ready for a fight. Thus, at the 3rd court appearance we were ready for a fact finding hearing. Instead of going forward with a fact finding hearing, we were able to get our client unsupervised parenting time along with a promise that the case would be dismissed at the next court appearance.
