Providing Skilled Legal Guidance Every Step Of The Way

Whether you are wishing to adopt an infant, a member of your extended family, a legally free child, or are seeking to adopt a child as a stepparent or a grandparent, it is important to have a knowledgeable legal advisor on your side to help walk you through the adoption process.

There are many different steps to the adoption process ranging from establishing paternity, obtaining consent of one or both parents, and undergoing an adoption home study ("pre and post-placement reports"). Each adoption is unique. I can use my legal skills and family law experience to help you address and hopefully overcome any challenges you may face. When all is said and done, all that most parties want is for the child to be loved and cared for. I will work hard to help you achieve these goals.
