Welcome to JLT Law & Mediation
Family Centered Advocacy
for Every Season of Your Lifetime℠
Minnesota Child Protection Attorney
JLT Law & Mediation is a Minnesota child protection attorney whose passion is to provide Family-Centered Advocacy for Every Season of Your Lifetime.SM Some seasons of life are full of joy – like adopting the children of your spouse or those who’ve been in foster care. Others are more stormy – especially when social services gets involved with your own children.
Whether your children have been removed from your home, you or your facility are under investigation by social services, or you are seeking to intervene in the child protection case of someone you care about, JLT’s effective, empathetic experience will help guide you through the process and defend the integrity of your family to mitigate the effects of these challenges.
As a former CHIPS prosecutor, guardian ad litem, and an experienced parent attorney, JLT has litigated hundreds of child protection cases, advocating and defending from every position in the courtroom (except the bench). The rules and statutes of juvenile protection are separate and distinct from family, criminal, and other civil law. Don’t leave your relationship with your child in the hands of someone who is “dabbling” in a new practice area.
Call JLT at 952-252-8619 for a consultation and an honest assessment of your case before the timelines expire.
