PROTECTING PARENTS’ CIVIL RIGHTS
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) investigates and makes determinations regarding any cases involving allegations of child abuse or child neglect. Dvorak Law Offices, LLC has experience suing DCFS, generally, for wrongful investigations, but more specifically our firm is a leader in the area of parents’ rights to make informed medical decisions on behalf of their children. Dvorak Law Offices, LLC has initiated important litigation against DCFS and various Illinois hospitals and medical professionals in relation to parents’ informed choices to deny Vitamin K shots for their babies at birth, as well as the application of erythromycin eye ointment and Hepatitis B shots. Parents who chose to decline unnecessary, prophylactic medication for their babies should not endure the nightmare of a DCFS investigation for making these informed choices. Our litigation has led to a national conversation on parents’ rights, and a simple Google search for “Vitamin K lawsuit” will demonstrate how news of this litigation spread not only nationally, but internationally, as well.
