Brooks Rathet has trained to and is representing children in dependency through Florida's attorney ad litem program. All children subject to court proceedings in Florida involving allegations of child abuse and neglect may have legal representation as long as the court jurisdiction continues. The attorney ad litem provides this representation. A lawyer who provides legal services for a child owes the same duties of undivided loyalty, confidentiality, and zealous representation to the child as is due an adult client.
