Julie Ketterman has fought CPS...and won

Houston Texas CPS Defense lawyer Julie Ketterman has fought CPS...and won. She has a passion for protecting families from false child-abuse or neglect allegations and the resulting government intrusion. If your family has been targeted by CPS, you and your children are at risk.

Julie provides legal representation for all types of false Child Protection Services allegations including child abuse, child neglect, exploitation, abandonment, a child in danger and temporary removal for safety reasons, in all of Texas and nationally.

The CPS process is long, confusing and tortuous. You need an attorney who is experienced in CPS. You need an attorney who can untangle the government red tape and reunify your family. Julie Ketterman has fought CPS...and won. You cannot fight CPS alone. Julie can, and will, help.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (TDFPS), more commonly known as CPS (Child Protective Services) was developed in the 1950's as an aid to families in need. CPS was there to help families get "back on their feet" and to guide them toward providing a safe and stable home.

Unfortunately, this is not the CPS of today. CPS today is a governmental agency that no longer provides services to help; the services are now punitive. CPS instills fear into families and children. They destroy lives: children, parents, and grandparents.

CPS has the umbrella motto of the "best interest" of the child. You will hear this over and over again. But what has been lost is more precious and fundamental...the constitutional rights of the parents. Each mother and father has the fundamental, constitutional right to parent their child - without government interference. This is not something that can just be tossed aside by CPS investigators, caseworkers and supervisors. This right can not be ignored by Foster parents, Guardians, CASA and Attorney ad litems. This is your right as a parent. Fight for it. Demand it.

Julie Ketterman has fought CPS...and won. You need an attorney experienced in CPS and an attorney who can untangle the government red tape and reunify your family.

Julie can, and will, help.
