Litigation Support

      HZA provided expert witness support to attorneys for child plaintiffs in a case against Vermont’s Department of Children and Families. The plaintiffs charged that the agency had failed to protect them from ongoing abuse by their stepmother. In preparation for testimony, HZA examined records from the agency, law enforcement and service providers to identify the chain of events of the case and then compared those events to Vermont’s law and policy regarding maltreatment and the agency’s obligations.
