Our compassionate lawyers work with the family to investigate and build a case that results in the justice the child deserves. 


What is Child Abuse?

Child abuse is the treatment of a child that results in physical, emotional, or mental harm. Child abuse can take place at the hands of a parent, caregiver, teacher, clergy, or other professionals, and it can cause long-term trauma to a child. Fortunately, it’s also considered one of the most serious criminal offenses with penalties including incarceration, loss of guardianship, loss of livelihood and more—and it’s our job to help punish the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law. If you know a child who has been the victim of abuse, take action and reach out to the attorneys at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Holloway. 


What Are Examples of Child Abuse?

Child abuse is not always visible, and that’s why it’s important to know the different types of child abuse that can occur. Abuse against a child can take place in three ways: physical and emotional/mental abuse, and neglect. Here are a few examples in each category:

  • Physical Child Abuse:
    • Hitting/Kicking
