West Virginia Child Abuse Laws & School Law
Are you concerned for a child that has been placed in a home by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources?  Has a person such as a teacher or guardian in a position of power over a child attempted to engage in a relationship with that child?  We represent parents--including noncustodial parents--who have reason to be concerned that their children are the victims of child abuse or neglect at school, in day care, or in a foster care placement.

The Olivio Law Firm, PLLC is dedicated to protecting the interests of children in the State of West Virginia.  After all, the greatest resource our State has is its children and their care is an investment in our future.  The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources is charged with the screening and placement of children in foster homes within the State.  Unfortunately, recent cases have revealed that children have been placed in the care of persons who have a history of child abuse and/or neglect.  This can occur in foster homes, day cares, or even in after-school programs.

Also, our firm has a great deal of experience with cases involving teachers who have attempted to engage in inappropriate relationships with the children under their care.  It is the duty of the school system to properly screen, interview and supervise persons who are charged with the care of our children. At the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC, we are ready to represent parents in lawsuits against the DHHR as well as the actual perpetrators of child abuse on the grounds that the Department or a School was negligent in investigating license holders' backgrounds, in investigating complaints, or in making unsuitable foster home placements.  This includes representing parents in lawsuits involving similar issues of child abuse, whether physical or emotional, involving teachers, coaches, camp counselors, and other persons placed in a position of authority and power over children.  In fact, one of the members of the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC was named Guardian of the Year by the Kanawha County Family Court for meritorious services to the children and families of West Virginia.

Contact us today if you believe a child is at risk for a free consultation.
