American Institute’s Family Law Division looks for attorneys that have achieved unparalleled success but, most importantly, have done so for the benefit of their client. Very few attorneys can do so and our organization recognizes this significant achievement.

Monica Cameron: Wichita Eagle’s Featured Business Person of the Week

July 9, 2015

Cameron loves practicing law, just not the type she thought she would. She earned a law degree from Washburn University with the idea of becoming a prosecutor, then did just that for two years with the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.

“Once I started doing it, it just wasn’t as fulfilling as I thought it was going to be,” said Cameron, who prosecuted traffic, criminal and juvenile cases.

Since 2010, she has specialized in divorce, custody and other family law matters. She also serves as a court-appointed mediator, trying to resolve cases before they reach a courtroom.

Trial involving adoption of girl by FaithBuilders founder to resume Wednesday

January 21, 2014

A trial involving a request by the founder of FaithBuilders to adopt a 2-year-old girl that has been in her custody since nearly birth will resume Wednesday – several months earlier than scheduled. . .

In Tuesday’s hearing, Lynnette Herrman, attorney for the 67-year-old great-grandmother, told Rumsey that state law allowed DCF to move a child to a different placement now because the great-grandmother had been preselected as the adoptive family.

“All I’m asking the court to do is follow the law set by the Legislature,” she said. . . [Read more…]

FaithBuilders director challenges state decision on child placement

January 10, 2014

The director of a private child welfare program that has drawn fire from some parents for allegedly impeding their efforts to be reunited with their children after they were taken into state custody was in court here Tuesday, asking a judge to reverse a Kansas Department for Children and Families’ decision to place a two-year-old girl with the child’s great grandmother. . .

But attorneys for DCF, the child, and the great grandmother each argued that state and federal laws favored placing the child with relatives and that both the great grandmother and the great uncle had proven to be fit parents. Causing the child to remain with the Dixons, they said, would deny her access to her biological family, which is black. Dixon is white.

The racial distinction was one of the issues raised in the hearing, by the lawyer representing the girl’s great grandmother.

The attorney, Lynette Herrman, also cited several instances in which Dixon reportedly resisted social workers’ efforts to foster a relationship between the girl and the great grandmother. . . [Read more…]

Kansas officials investigate complaints about Wichita child welfare group

October 3, 2013

State officials say they are investigating a faith-based group’s role in some child welfare cases after a Wichita legislator raised concerns that the organization might be undercutting efforts to reunite some of the children with their parents. . .

Lynette Herrman, a former Sedgwick County prosecutor who now represents parents and foster parents in custody cases in juvenile court, said the issues raised by the social workers warranted thorough investigation.

“Child welfare investigations are closed,” Herrman said. “That’s federal law. If DCF is talking about these cases to anybody but law enforcement, that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.” [Read more…]
