Get To Know Us
Families are our priority. As family defenders, we look at each case through the lens of family integrity instead of "parent's rights vs children's rights" to get the best resolution for your family.
Meet Keshia Adeniyi-Dorsey
I am a family defender, educator and activist.
For 10 years, I have helped hundreds of individuals and families achieve positive legal outcomes.
I've won clients’ trust because I have skills in court and compassion outside of it. I'll treat your family with dignity and respect and we'll fight like hell to bring your kids home and get CPS out of your life!

Removing a child from his or her parent is one of the most violent actions the government can take against its people.
( Dorothy Roberts)
We seek justice on behalf of families impacted by the CPS system.
We fight to preserve sacred family bonds and end trauma caused by family surveillance and separation.
Although we represent individual parents, we fight for the whole family.
