Philosophy and Goals: The mission of the Gulati Firm is to be a strong, smart and savvy advocate for those facing government persecution. We believe that every person deserves to have their story told and for someone to stand up and fight the hard fight for justice. At the Gulati Firm we believe you are defined by your common humanity and what positive aspects you bring to this world, not by a single decision or mistake. We fight every day to secure the rights of Californians to be treated with dignity and respect by the judicial system.
Being a parent is one of the most important aspects of life. And the government must respect your right to parent in the way you see fit. The United States Supreme Court has ensured that parents have the right to make decisions on how to raise their children and this constitutional right is constantly being challenged by local social service agencies who think they know better how to care for your child. The Gulati Firm will not back down from fighting to ensure you can raise your child.
Our Approach: Mindy approaches Dependency cases with a high degree of emotional and legal understanding. These cases require professionalism and respect for the client and that is what Mindy brings. When parents face the threat of losing their child to the county, it is important to have an advocate who will truly devote the time that is needed to the case. It is also important that the attorney know the law and understand the serious consequences. Mindy has this knowledge and devotion to parents facing such a traumatic government intrusion. Mindy learns the family history of each client, tells their story to the court and is willing to go to trial and advocate for the return of the child to their parents.
Mindy has handled hundreds of dependency cases and taken many of them to trial. She has found much success in these cases and is dedicated to each client. Her compassion and caring attitude towards the parent is very important in these cases because they can take a huge toll on the family. Mindy is there to be your guide, your advocate and your defense against the government.
