You Need a Lawyer Now
If as a parent, you are questioned by a Deputy Juvenile Officer in the Children's Division of the St. Louis County Juvenile Court, or if the officer wants to question you, you need a lawyer as soon as possible. Anything you say to the officer can be used against you — to justify placing your child into foster care, in a criminal action against you, or both.
Jennifer R. Piper represents parents in cases involving the removal of children into foster care and termination of parental rights. She can advise you regarding what, if anything you should say to a Deputy Juvenile Officer or other investigators. Ms. Piper can also represent you in a protective custody hearing to protect your rights and present evidence supporting your desire to keep your children.
If your child has been taken into foster care, Jennifer R. Piper can appeal your case in an attempt to regain custody of your children.
