Beam Legal Team was recently introduced to Canine Advocacy Program (CAP),
which is a non-profit organization that provides trained therapy dogs
to minors while they provide testimony in order to alleviate anxiety.
Our client, Evan, was the first child in the State of Michigan to be deposed
with a CAP dog by his side. According to his father, Evan loved Lance
(pictured), and he definitely helped Evan relax during his hour-long deposition.
Lance was accompanied by Dan Cojanu, the Vice President and Program Director
of CAP, who also gave Evan a worry stone and trading cards featuring two
of the program’s dogs as souvenirs. Dan is passionate about the
program and helping children work through the legal system. Beam Legal
Team will continue to work with CAP in order to protect our young clients
from insensitive Insurance defense attorneys who compel judges to order
depositions of children with disabilities.
