DCFS Expungement Hearings

You can help wrongfully-accused parents and caretakers by attending a Family Defense Center (FDC) training on January 27th from 12 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. at Jones Day (77 W. Wacker).

Volunteers will learn how to represent clients in appeals of unsupported abuse or neglect indicated findings in the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services’ Administrative Hearings Unit. These cases afford attorneys the opportunity to conduct a full evidentiary mini-trial within approximately 90 days of a case opening, which can provide invaluable experience for firm associates and solo attorneys with the support of FDC attorneys.

To register, email Sara Gilloon by noon on January 25th.
