Unfortunately, efforts to protect children from the horrible reality of child abuse can lead to many honest and loving parents being falsely accused of harming their child. School employees, doctors, and anyone who deals with children on a regular basis are mandated by the state of California to report any and all suspicions of child abuse. They do not even have to provide proof. A doubt or misgiving is all that is needed.

If you are the target of a Child Protective Services (CPS) investigation due to fabricated or mistaken allegations, Oddenino Law Group can help you provide evidence to negate their validity, including:

  • Medical reasons
  • Reported injury was the result of an accident
  • Parental alienation syndrome


As seasoned Los Angeles divorce lawyers, we are also fully aware of the lengths a parent will go to when seeking primary or sole custody of their children. Regrettably, many children are often caught in the crosshairs of a contentious divorce. Angry parents may make false accusations, or – worse yet – manipulate their children into reporting instances of abuse that never happened.
