Also, our attorneys have a great deal of experience with cases involving teachers who have attempted to engage in inappropriate relationships with the children under their care.

At the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC, we represent parents in lawsuits against the DHHR and other systems advocacy work, as well as the actual perpetrators of child abuse.
