Endangering the Welfare of a Child

If you’ve been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, you need experienced legal representation with a proven track record of success. These types of charges are serious and can include penalties of up to a year in jail as well as a permanent criminal record. Don’t take these charges lightly. Schedule a free consultation with one of the best criminal defense attorneys in New York, Michaelangelo Matera of The Matera Law Firm. As a former prosecutor, he can leverage his 25 years of experience to help protect your rights and preserve your freedom.


Charges involving endangering the welfare of a child are very serious because a court is naturally always going to look to protect the interests of a child. They could have many different consequences, even apart from the criminal charge itself. If there’s a child involved, it’s very possible that Child Protective Services could get involved. If this happens, you could find yourself not only dealing with a claim in criminal court, but also in family court where they could be looking to limit, if not completely take away your contact with your own children.

When people are facing charges involving endangering the welfare of a child, what matters is results. At The Matera Law Firm, we have over 25 years of experience helping people when they need it most. That commitment has allowed us to generate a record of success against all types of criminal charges.
