Our mission is to provide a strong legal representation that will change your life for the better.
We believe that honest and effective communication, along with a thorough knowledge of the law plus a devotion to details, and a spirited focus on your specific goals produces this type of representation.
We also will work to maintain integrity and respect in all matters and strive to inspire the same in all parties involved.
Criminal Defense for Crimes Against Children
We handle all child abuse and neglect cases, such as child endangerment, child abandonment, and injury to a child. We incorporate our unique understanding of dealing with CPS into your criminal case which means we understand the need to see your kids and get them back into your care.
Attorneys who only practice criminal or family law are not uniquely qualified to handle these critically important cases. Unfortunately many family law and criminal defense attorneys will accept these cases only to realize they don’t know how to handle the procedures unique to the CPS system.
Our success is your success. Check out some of our latest stories. Then come and talk to us about your case.
We were in a panic when CPS showed up at our door and unsure of what to do. We contacted The Scalise Law Firm and it was the best decision for us! From the first call to the last they were helpful, knowledgeable, and prompt in everything that they did. Hiring a lawyer first put our minds at ease, but then hiring Brad put our lives at ease because we knew we got the best! They are affordable and willing to work with you on a payment plan. Worth every penny for my family! Thank you Brad and Velma for your hard work and dedication in keeping our family together and CPS out of our lives!
Brad Scalise was professional and thorough every step of the way. Between the initial personal meeting, phone calls, and emails throughout the case it was evident Mr Scalise took the case seriously and had more than just financial motivations to help us. Our case was closed within months and we never had to step foot in court due to his proficiency.

Brad Scalise and his law firm did a superb job guiding us through the bureaucratic red tape of a CPS case. Brad followed through on each of his commitments to us and helped us resolve and close a case that was dragged on by CPS. If it were not for Brad and his team we would probably still be entangled in a mess of a case. Thank you Brad for your professionalism, dedication to helping families navigate through a truly difficult time in their lives and providing solace when stress is so high.
I was so relieved when I found Mr. Scalise online. Brad and his team worked relentlessly for my family and I. CPS can take their time on their investigations, and when they hear you have an attorney, it will definitely speed up the closure of their investigation. Brad WILL fight for you and your family by solving what needs to be addressed and confronting CPS. I could not have picked a better attorney to represent my family. I would refer Brad to anyone and everyone. You are making the right choice by hiring him, and he will fight for you! Thank you Brad and team!
