Opinion by Justice Fowler
Panel members:
Justices Leslie Brock Yates, Wanda Fowler and Eva Guzman
Full case style: In the Interest of A.S., D.S. and L.A.S
Appeal from 314th District Court of Harris County (Judge John Phillips)

This is an appeal from a judgment terminating appellants' parental rights to their minor children. In five issues each, appellants challenge the legal and factual sufficiency of the evidence underlying the findings in the termination order and the appointment of appellee Department of Family & Protective Services ("the Department") as sole managing conservator. We reverse and render in part, and reverse and remand in part.

I need the name of a good Texas lawyer. I am in Washington state and have a case against the state so I cannot get any normal help here. I was served with termination papers after being blocked out of services and even having the state interfere with my unemployment claim with the state which has been pending over 7 months.
