This marks the largest known recovery in Florida for one child who was emotionally and sexually abused against a governmental defendant, DCF. Children’s rights attorney Howard Talenfeld served as co-counsel for C.M.H.
Disabled children who have physical disabilities, developmental disabilities, and mental health-related issues are in need of critical attention and specialized representation. Justice for Kids brings its unique and proven approach to the representation of these children who are eligible for governmental benefits, whose services are being cut and others who have been abused by the state child welfare system.
Our team’s lawsuits and advocacy have has led to widespread reforms and awareness. Howard helped raise public attention to the then-common practice of prescribing “psychotropic cocktails” of powerful anti-psychotic medications to young children and foster children in state-contracted settings. He brought a wrongful death lawsuit after a 12-year-old Autistic boy died from being given multiple psychotropic medications with no monitoring or supervision in a dangerous, off-label practice without parental consent.
