Mr. Parnes has handled hundreds of cases representing parents where the State Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has either filed petitions to take temporary custody of their children or seek to terminate the parental rights. He has been successful on numerous occasions in preventing the termination of parental rights in both Oakland and Genesee Counties.
At the Annual Oakland County Adoption Day Ceremonies on November 24, 2015, Mr. Parnes was the recipient of the Sandra Silver Child Advocate of the Year Award. The Award is given in honor of the late Probate Judge Sandra Silver by the Oakland County Family Court Judges and is presented to the attorney the Judge’s believe has shown exceptional dedication in representing children and parents.
Representation is based on client providing a retainer and per/hour basis.
