Advokids’ Consult Line for Children’s Attorneys is the only free support service for children’s dependency attorneys in California. Advokids offers the opportunity for children’s attorneys to consult with an experienced dependency attorney to discuss questions about dependency law, trial strategy, potential legal arguments, making a record for appeal, or other issues they are facing in a particular case. Jan Sherwood, Advokids’ attorney consultant, is an NACC certified Child Welfare Law Specialist (CWLS) and a certified Appellate Specialist through the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization.

If you wish to schedule a consultation about a case with Jan, please call the Advokids’ office at 415-924-0587 or fill out the form below.
