Every Family Is Different And I Have The Experience To Help

Through my work in family formation law and family law, I’ve seen many families go through extremely difficult situations in trying to have children or ensuring security for the ones they have. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

Creative Family Formation

The “traditional path” to parenthood is not available to you or has not worked for you. You’ve considered adoption, gamete (egg and/or sperm) donation, embryo donation (or adoption) and surrogacy, but you’re not sure which is best for you. You want to know that once a child is placed with you, they’ll be legally yours – forever.

Parental Rights And Recognition

You already have children and want to ensure your parental rights are recognized and protected, and that you are allowed to be a present and loving influence in their lives.
