The Department of Human Services (DHS) removed children from a family. Thomas represented the father. The concern DHS told the court they had regarding the father was that he was in jail and therefore couldn’t care for the kids. Of course, when the father was released from jail, DHS argued to the judge that the kids should still stay under their (and not dad’s) care. Thomas successfully obtained a court order dismissing DHS’ power over this family – thus restoring the children to father!
