Dear Friends:

There is no one - and I really mean no one - who understands CPS like Suzanne Shell. Reading her book, Profane Justice, is like exploring a great treasure. I have stood in court hearings maybe 200 times, and still don't know all that she has figured out by research, intuition, and inspiration. Every day, I stake my law practice on her being right, and she invariably is.

Gregory A. Hession, Attorney at Law, MA

Topics Covered

  • History of Child Protection Services and outcomes
  • How to combat false allegations
  • Effective Advocacy
  • Unauthorized Practice of Law and other advocacy information.
  • Preventative information
  • Resources, Information and Networking
  • Civil vs. Criminal Court
  • Parental and Family Rights law for the sponsor's state and supporting case law
  • Fight or Cooperate? Benefits and Consequences
  • How to fight smart and win!
  • Managing your case to dramatically increase your odds of speedy reunification.
  • Documentation: How to Document, how to use it, and Why it's a must!

Ms. Shell reserves the right to refuse attendance to anyone for any reason. Due to the persecution the state of Colorado is perpetrating upon Ms. Shell, all attendees will be required to sign a confidentiality/non-disclosure agreement and provide a valid photo ID at the door. This information will remain confidential and in the sole custody of AFAC in the event it is needed to protect Ms. Shell against any further retaliation or malicious prosecution by the state of Colorado.
