I am a solo practioner and I take a very limited number of Juvenile Dependency cases. I work closely with my clients and help them to understand the situation they are in. In Dependency cases, the client must gain insight into the problem in order to get to the solution. I started out in the Law as a Prosecutor and I take my work ethic very seriously. I have successfully defended parents accused of Shaken Baby Syndrome as well as molestation. I work with parents with chemical dependency issues. I also help parents involved in highly litigated child custody disputes. EVELYN A. COX LAW OFFICE OF EVELYN A.
