Child & Domestic Violence Advocate, Author


Maralee Mclean is a child advocate, protective mother, and author of Prosecuted But Not Silenced. Maralee’s passion for child advocacy developed over two decades of living a mother’s worse nightmare. Fighting the system both body and soul, she gained the insight that this was not her nightmare alone. Read More >

Currently working on a documentary, Mclean shares her legal journey to protect her daughter from her ex-husband’s alleged sexual abuse. She faced barriers at every turn and her ex-husband ultimately won custody. Her efforts to seek justice produced outcomes that would make many protective mothers question whether to travel her path. Changing the legal landscape motivated her to write her book, and she received an award as a Finalist for the Best Literary Book of Colorado in 2019.

To aid in the production of her documentary, Mclean joined the non-profit Fight Back Foundation. The documentary, which is on courtroom reform for sexually-abused and abused children, will be sent to every Family Court judge, state governor, and member of Congress and the Senate to help empower these decision-makers to truly act in the best in of our most-vulnerable kids.

She organized a National Rally of Mothers at the Capitol and is involved in legislative work on the task force for the Colorado Children’s Code appointed by the Governor. Maralee has testified before Congress to promote judicial accountability to better protect sexually abused children’s rights in our courts. She has spoken to law students and at conferences in several states, and her story has been covered by many local media outlets and internationally on CNN.

She consults with the Women’s Media Center, and the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence, and is a member of the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. Her degree is a B.S. in Science, but has spent 25 years in social issues concerning child abuse. Maralee Mclean is an expert witness in the courts on “PAS” Parental Alienation Theory” and domestic violence. Read Less ^
