Minnesota Daycare License Defense Attorney

As a childcare provider, there are not many things that are worse than being accused of wrongdoing while a child is in your care. You may be accused of neglect resulting in injury, abuse, maltreatment, or another act that could result in a temporary or permanent license revocation or suspension.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services and the County Social Services can shut down your business immediately without any explanation based only on an allegation. In such a situation, the Hoffner Firm can help you by immediately and strategically defending your license so that you can get back on your feet as quickly as possible. We can help you to get a Temporary Immediate Suspension overturned so that you can continue to operate your childcare business during an investigation, minimizing the financial toil that the process can take on your livelihood. We can also defend you against any ultimate findings and guide you through the often confusing appeals process.

Types Of Accusations

There are a number of accusations that can be made against daycare providers and they may or may not have any merit at all. Those complaints include:

  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Too many children and not enough caregivers
  • Neglect
  • Abuse
  • Maltreatment
  • Closing at the last minute for emergencies or vacations without arranging for a substitute
  • Not giving children enough to eat
  • Using harsh disciplinary action
  • Not enforcing rules or constantly changing the rules
  • Not giving parents advance notice of program changes

If any of these complaints are brought to the attention of the organizations that regulate daycares throughout Minnesota, an investigation could take place. Our law firm has successfully provided individuals with the representation to help them protect and maintain their licenses when threatened.

If your license is in danger of being suspended or revoked, or if it already has been, we can work to overturn temporary immediate suspensions, revocations, disqualifications, neglect and maltreatment determinations, and much more. We know the intricacies of the agencies involved and we can use that knowledge to work to your advantage.

We know that the claim against you can have a heavy impact on your income and your reputation, so we work hard to resolve all of the issues in question so that the claim has as little a financial impact as possible.
