Won affirmance on behalf of child of order finding that the mother abused the child.

Matter of Daniel A. (Sandra M.), 122 AD3d 834 (2nd Dept 2014)

In this child abuse appeal where I represented the child, the Second Department accepted my argument that Family Court properly found that she abused the subject child as the petitioner established a prima facie case of abuse by presenting evidence demonstrating that the subject child sustained injuries that were inconsistent with the mother’s explanation that the subject child’s older sibling had accidentally dropped the subject child, who was then less than one month old and that the mother failed to proffer a reasonable and adequate explanation for the subject child’s injuries and that the Family Court’s assessment of the conflicting expert testimony, which is entitled to deference, is supported by the record.
