Child Abuse Allegations: No one is hearing what you have to say

There seems to be an increasing amount of lawyers who are not listening to what the accused and family have to say. This is a very dangerous situation as you lived the situation and the lawyer did not. Accused and families have a lot to offer. As a consultant I am often the go-between for the accused and family to the lawyer. It is very important for attorneys and/or consultants to understand the family dynamics when choosing experts or even considering questions to ask potential jurors. Particularly with allegations of child sexual abuse, the more information the better!
