New Child Welfare Specialists

Diane “Dizy” Walton and Jason Gast became board certified legal specialists in the area of child welfare law, with those two focusing on representing parents involved in juvenile court.  Child welfare law is a new specialization, and Diane and Jason are now among only twenty-two lawyers holding that specialization in the state.
“I am passionate about the importance of representing parents,” said Walton.  “Studying for the child welfare specialization exam was a way for me to really dig in and solidify my knowledge of this unique area of the law.”
Gast added, “I took the specialization exam in order to help elevate the profile of the work that we do, which is helping vulnerable parents reunite with their children.  It is difficult, but rewarding, practice.”
