My name is Gabe Dominocielo and I am the Executive Director of, we’re a State Bar Certified Lawyer Referral Service and one of our panel member attorneys is suing on behalf of families who have been wrongfully separated by child services and have had their children put into foster care for no reason.


What is Happening:

In Los Angeles County, for example, each child from a family on government assistance brings Los Angeles County up to $150,000 per year in revenue. In 2009, the Department’s budget was nearly 2 billion dollars for approximately 15,000 children, half of whom were NOT abused or neglected.

In Los Angeles County, approximately 1000 children are taken each month. State law requires a trial within 15 days to ensure that only abused and neglected children are separated from their families and put in foster care. To that end, each child and each parent has a court appointed attorney.

Child services has a routine suspension of a fair trial and manipulates parents into not fighting for their own children through a trial, rather, has parents try to recover children through the foster care system which can take years.

While parents navigate the complex foster care system, children can be seriously physically, sexually and mentally abused. During this time Los Angeles County is benefiting financially.

Please help me stop this. I have studies which can prove all of this and we have been working with the Children’s Justice Foundation (CJF) to help find families who have been effected by this to help them receive compensation for what has happened to them.

There is no cost to people who use our service, we refer clients to the lawyers for free and the lawyers sue on their behalf on a contingency fee basis.

I have been tasked with finding more plaintiffs for this lawsuit which is much like a class action but this type of lawsuit is called a coordinated action. If you’re interested I can send you a copy of the complaint which goes much more in depth.


Thank you,

Gabe Dominocielo
