March 17, 2009

McGuireWoods associate Tracy Moyer (Antitrust and Trade Regulation, Los Angeles) represented an adoptive caregiver before an administrative law judge for the California Department of Social Services. After a two-hour hearing on Feb. 24, 2009, the judge issued a decision granting the caregiver specialized care funding for her nine-year-old adoptive child to supplement the basic rate, and to help provide for social and mental health services.
