A:David’s Answer: I’m not sure I understand what your issue is. Are you looking to sue someone for the false reports? If so, you’d need to write to OCFS in Albany to obtain the reports to discovery who was calling them in. Are you looking for representation regarding the CPS investigations? If so, you’d need to call an Orange/Westchester Child Abuse defense attorney to schedule a consultation for a full assessment. – David Bliven, Westchester Child Abuse Attorney, (www.Blivenlaw.net)
