By law, each party to an adoption has the right to independent representation by an attorney. I represent only one party in each adoption, who may be the birthparents, guardians or adoptive parents. I strongly believe that each party's legal interests should be separately represented. I believe each party should have their own representative who works for them alone and will put their interests first.

Adoption is a highly specialized and personal area of the law, and should be treated as such.

I support and welcome your input in the adoption process. I will guide you in formulating an educated plan, tailored to your individual needs and in strict compliance with the law. 

Adoptions are highly emotional cases. Professional counseling and support can offer invaluable assistance in conjunction with adoption and ARTs cases. I encourage counseling for all parties, and provide referrals to mental health professionals for this purpose.

Each prospective adoptive parent must be found suitable based on a home study performed by a licensed child-placing agency. I do not have any other eligibility requirements for my adoption clients, and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, age, sex, handicap, national origin, residence, marital status, income level or sexual orientation.
