When you contact a preschool abuse law firm, you’re putting a lot of trust in them. Obviously, this is one of the most sensitive situations imaginable. Clients who visit attorneys for the first time are usually a little bit nervous about whether or not client attorney privilege applies and that’s understandable. They tend to be even more nervous when their children are involved. It does apply and consulting with an attorney is confidential.
Experience and Success
Make sure that the attorney you choose has a track record of winning cases for preschool abuse and preschool neglect. These cases are not easy to take on. In fact, the attorneys who do take these cases generally do have some passion for fighting for the families involved, as these are some of the most unpleasant cases imaginable. Ask the attorney about the past cases that they have handled and how many times they have won compensation for their clients.
The safest way to pursue any legal action in civil court is on a contingency basis. The contingency basis means that the attorney doesn’t get paid unless they actually win your claim. This eliminates any motivation for bad attorneys to take cases they know they cannot win simply to get legal fees out of people. Make certain that you’re dealing with an attorney who works on contingency so that you can have as much confidence in them as they do.
The attorney will need access to resources, including the expertise of outside individuals, to successfully put together your case. Make certain that the attorney does have people that they can call upon to provide expert testimony, if needed and other services that may benefit your case.
If you plan on suing the negligent daycare facility, it’s irrelevant whether or not somebody at that facility is facing criminal charges for child abuse of any kind.

Find the daycare abuse attorney who makes you feel like they can argue your claim successfully and like they can prepare you to go to court and testify, if needed. Good attorneys can help families who have been injured and children who have been abused by negligent preschool facilities to get compensated for what they have been put through.
