I have been doing adoption work for many years and I keep my practice small so I can devote more personal attention to each matter. I work on a fixed-fee basis as much as possible so my clients can take full advantage of the personal service I provide without worrying about the cost. Even if you do not work with me, please use an attorney with adoption expertise to handle your adoption-related matter. You can find skilled, ethical adoption attorneys on the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys website - www.adoptionattorneys.org.
