Vincent W Davis & Our Juvenile Dependency Law Firm
I’ve been practicing in the area of juvenile dependency law since January 2, 1989. Since that time I and my firms have represented hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands, of people in the juvenile dependency courts. We’ve practiced in the areas of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
Juvenile Dependency is a very specialized area of legal practice. Many people refer to Juvenile Dependency as Children’s Court law, or refer to it as (in Los Angeles) as Edelman’s Court Law referring to the name of the main Juvenile Dependency Court in Los Angeles County. Even though all areas of law are very specialized and particular in knowledge and experience, most lawyers will tell you that Juvenile Dependency is difficult for most lawyers since there are specialized laws, rules and practices in these courts. You find that most lawyers do not practice in this area and do not want to practice in this area. In fact, many of clients are referred to our firm from other lawyers and other law firms.
Currently, our firm consists of 3 full time lawyers who practice in this specialized area: Vincent W. Davis, and Stephanie M. Davis. I’ll start with Stephanie. Stephanie started practicing in this area of law in January 1989. She has represented parents, relatives, such as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, children and foster parents in these court proceedings. Each type of person represented in the juvenile court brings with it special concerns and rules. After representing these folks in the trial courts, such as the Edelman’s court house, Stephanie spent many years representing people in the appellate courts doing appeals in juvenile dependency cases. She developed quite a reputation and was known as one of the best juvenile dependency appellate attorneys in the state of California.
Subsequently, Stephanie Davis, left the private practice of law and became a judicial officer, and sat as a referee or temporary judge, in the Los Angeles Juvenile Court in Inglewood, California, for more than 16 years. Recently, Stephanie rejoined the firm and is representing people in juvenile dependency courts throughout Southern California.
