Choosing adoption, whether you are a birth parent or an adoptive parent, is one of the most personal and bittersweet choices you will ever face. Adoption is a specialized area of law.  It’s important that you have a knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate attorney to help you through the legal intricacies of your adoption. For the past 25 years my practice has focused on adoption and family formation law. And as the mom of a son now in college, I truly understand how precious your child is to you.
