Social workers have an admirable occupation. As licensed professionals, social workers are also subject to standard-of-care and ethical-conduct regulations for the services they provide. When they face allegations or criminal charges, the impact of investigations and consequences can also affect the lives of their clients. This is why swift action and proactive defense is essential in dismissing cases before they can escalate and be publicized. If you are a social worker in need of legal representation, the Tew Law Firm is prepared to review your case, inform you of your options and explain how the firm can be of assistance.

Common Allegations

Among the various allegations social workers may face, the most common complaints tend to concern ethical violations. When administrative agencies become involved and begin investigations, they often fail to exercise objectivity, as many believe the clients of social workers to be in a position of vulnerability. Ethical violations may result in professional sanctions that can affect the employment and future of social workers. In some cases, these violations can result in serious criminal charges. When this is the case, legal representation is vital in reducing the risk of suffering fines, criminal penalties and criminal records.
