San Diego Child Abuse Attorneys
Children are some of the most defenseless members of our society, making the abuse of a child one of the most contemptible acts a person can commit. In some instance, when a child is abused by a parent or other loved one, he or she may not report the abuse because it is at the hands of someone they love and trust. This can allow abuse to continue for long periods of time.
If your spouse is abusing your child, or if you suspect that abuse is occurring, it is important that you take action. As soon as it is safe for you to do so, contact the San Diego child abuse attorneys of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, at 858-935-6211 for the dedicated and compassionate help you need at this time.
