Types of Child Abuse Cases

A variety of situations can result in child abuse charges. These cases are often complicated and emotionally charged. The penalties of a conviction can be severe. In addition to fines and jail time, you may also be required to register as a sex offender if the abuse was sexual in nature. A conviction can affect your ability to find employment, rent a home, and maintain custody of your child.

Child abuse cases may involve:

  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Neglect
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sex with a minor
  • Rape
  • Child pornography
  • Child prostitution

Client Reviews Speak Volumes

    "Regardless of the charges you are facing, he will treat you as a person and not what the paper says about you."

    Hiring an attorney can be a stressful process. Mr.Vega was very helpful right from the very first phone call. He is very down to earth, and was able to explain things so that I understood. My husband was facing felony drug charges, and a possible 6 year sentence. He took the case seriously and made us feel like we mattered and that we had a voice. Regardless of the charges you are facing, he will treat you as a person and not what the paper says about you. He was able to get a very good deal that we didn't think was possible and in fact were told by other attorneys was out of the question. My husband was able to get all charges but one dismissed, 1 year of county jail , with half, credit for time served and probation and the ability to apply for early release via the work project program. That's amazing. He was willing to negotiate to come up with a payment plan to fit the needs of everyone involved. I'm 100% happy with his service and would highly recommend him to anyone.

    "He’s so down to earth and easy to talk to."

    I made some stupid choices in 2015 that came back to hunt me January 2016. I was extremely scared of the thought of going to jail for a few years over a stupid choice I made the prior year. As soon as I talked to Mr. Vega, I instantly knew I wanted to hire him to represent me. It’s so unlike me to make such an important decision without doing a lot of research but I knew from speaking on the phone with him that he would be the one to help me. Although I was facing these charges and having to explain to him everything that happened, not one time did he make me feel like a criminal. He’s so down to Earth and easy to talk to. Mr. Vega was able to get me 90 days of house arrest which I was only required to do half of. Forever thankful for your help and would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney!
