Won affirmance on behalf of the child from order dismissing the father’s petition for visitation without a hearing.

Matter of McLean v Simpson, 82 AD3d 1101 (2nd Dept 2011)

In this appeal by the father of Family Court denial of his petition for visitation without a hearing where I represented the child on appeal, the Second Department accepted my argument that a hearing was not necessary the court possessed adequate relevant information to make an informed determination of the child’s best interest and where there was a substantial basis in the record to support a finding that visitation with the father would not be in the child’s best interests at this time.
