Trusted Legal Advocacy When You Need It Most

While some child custody cases can be resolved fairly smoothly and efficiently through collaborative negotiation, more contentious cases often require a more nuanced and thoughtful approach. If you are struggling with a child custody dispute that involves allegations of domestic violence or other accusations of criminal wrongdoing or parental unfitness, you need reliable and aggressive legal advocacy to ensure that your rights remain protected at every turn. Unfortunately, a criminal or CPS investigation for alleged physical or sexual abuse can set the tone for a family law case, as the family law judge will likely be influenced by the potential felony charge you may be facing. Don’t let your ex-spouse take their anger out on you by accusing you of parental unfitness—reach out to The Vern McCray Law Firm, PLLC, right away to discuss your options. As a seasoned and knowledgeable criminal defense and family law attorney, Vern McCray has the tools and expertise to provide you with the strongest possible legal representation. Mr. McCray will remain by your side at every stage of the legal process to answer your questions, address your concerns, and protect the best interests of you and your family.
