Attorney Diane Redleaf on “They Took the Kids Last Night: How the Child Protection System Puts Families at Risk"

 Nationally-known leaders have called Diane L. Redleaf, author of They Took the Kids Last Night: How the Child Protection System Puts Families at Risk (Praeger, 2018), the “conscience of the child welfare system,” the driving force behind creating a “better, fairer child welfare system” and “the people’s lawyer.” A civil rights lawyer for families in the child welfare system since she settled in Chicago in 1979 after graduating from Stanford Law School, Diane has played a leading role in hundreds of important cases on behalf of families, with over 60 published court opinions and led legislative efforts that have benefited millions of children and families.
