Children’s Protective Services Lawyers| CPS Defense

In Michigan, Children’s Protective Services (CPS) workers can be intimidating and aggressive. Don’t delay in contacting our Michigan CPS lawyers for a free initial consultation. Being accused of child abuse, neglect or molestation of a child can change your life forever. Parents are often investigated when a report is made by a school teacher, a counselor, a pastor or an ex-spouse.


The best thing you can do to avoid the many harsh consequences of having CPS in your home is to retain counsel immediately. If you are being contacted by CPS or the police, you should contact the experienced Michigan child abuse, failure to protect and neglect attorneys at The Kronzek Firm PLC. We have a full service legal defense team and can assist you with all legal matters related to a CPS investigation.


Finding the right attorney is not always easy. We often hear complaints from prospective clients that their attorneys seems to be afraid of opposing CPS in court. The role of a parent’s lawyer is to protect your parental rights. Only an attorney willing to fight for those parental rights should handle child abuse or neglect cases. Many parents find themselves being represented by attorneys who seem unwilling to stand up for them in court. That will not be your experience with us. You will find us to be passionate and effective parent advocates.

I had been fighting for years to get custody of my child. In less than a year, and with help of Mr. Kronzek, Mr. Pease, and all staff, I had custody. Mr. Pease worked very hard on my case. He knew exactly what I needed to bring to the case and was very informative. If I had questions, he would answer them. If he didn't know the answer, he would admit he didn't and then do everything he could to find the correct answer. My child is now safe and so much happier. To see the smile on my child's face, day in and day out is priceless. I can never thank Mr. Kronzek and Mr. Pease enough for what they've done for me and my child. I would recommend this law firm to anyone in need of a law firm who fights for what is right!

Michigan CPS Defense Team

In Michigan, CPS is the division of the Department of Human Services (DHS) that investigates allegation of child abuse and neglect. Unfortunately, much of what CPS workers do is a matter of DHS policy. DHS policy is different from state law. The fact that DHS policy is binding on a CPS investigator does not make it binding on a parent.


Parents have well recognized Constitutional rights regarding the raising of their children without unreasonable governmental interference. We can help you evaluate your rights and responsibilities. We can help you explore ways to keep your children in your home and the government out of your home.


Our top-flight legal defense team is ready to assist you in dealing with CPS and defending against criminal child abuse and child neglect allegations, including, but not limited to:

I had the pleasure of working with Brandy Thompson. She was extremely easy to reach when I had questions, up front and honest with what to expect and what I could and couldn't do and made the whole process easier on me by being attentive and professional. I would recommend her and the firm to anyone.
