Founded by Dutch explorers and later ceded to the British Empire, Staten Island today is a large suburban borough of New York City. Staten Island was also where British forces first read the Declaration of Independence.
Staten Island attorneys recently filed a suit against New York City’s Administration for Child Services (ACS), a city-run social-work agency. The lawsuit alleges that ACS was negligent in its failure to prevent the tragic murder of a 2 year old child. Numerous domestic abuse incidents involving the child and her family had been documented by the agency, but no actions were ever taken to protect the toddler.
Each borough of New York has its own court system. Staten Island lawyers practice in Richmond County courts, and are familiar with the rules and procedures of the Supreme Court, Civil Court, Criminal Court, Family Court, and Surrogate Court.
