Adoptions and Surrogacy

Growing Your Family

When you decide it’s time to build your family, it’s like an emotional roller coaster. If you’ve chosen to adopt a child, the roller coaster ride can grow even longer and bumpier. As prospective parents, you’ll benefit from our compassionate, extensive experience.

From working with an adoption agency to contested adoptions or adoptions from foster care to step-parent adoptions, we’re dedicated to helping you navigate the complicated process. We’ll guide you through the journey to receive one of life’s most precious gifts — family.

Surrogacy

Thanks to the miracle of modern medicine and science, surrogacy offers infertile couples an opportunity to have biologically-related children.

Whether you’ve decided to work with a surrogate to grow your family or considering becoming a surrogate mother, we are excited to advise on the legal parts of your journey.

Why Choose Us?

Adoption — by its very nature — can become a very stressful process. Our child-focused approach and compassionate understanding of your needs, desires, and worries drives our commitment to providing the guidance and information you need to make decisions confidently. We’ll do all we can to ensure a smooth adoption or surrogacy process.

    Have questions? Need to speak to someone about your legal needs? We're here to help.
