We are so happy that we chose Jennifer Fairfax as our attorney for our second parent adoption. We cannot say enough good things about her! At the beginning of the process, we felt very confused and lost about where to start. She made everything clear, quick, and painless. We appreciated her professionalism, her sense of humor, and her expertise in this area of law. She knew exactly which documents we would need, and the process was completed within the time frame she initially gave us. We recommend her to anyone seeking to adopt in Maryland. Thank you!

We are very happy to have Jennifer Fairfax as an adoption lawyer for our family. From our first initial meeting, we were very clear of all procedures and what to expect. We were confident that Ms. Fairfax has alot of experiences with adoption and will be able to move our case forward. She has made the very complex adoption procedures and paper worked streamlined and seamless for us. She also kept us up-to-date on all progresses on our case. We would highly recommend Ms. Jennifer Fairfax as your adoption lawyer.

Jennifer represented my step-dad to legally adopt me. Jennifer informed me of all details for the adoption procedures and made certain that it was completely my choice. I felt very good that she was our lawyer. I was glad she told us in advance to bring a camera to take pictures with the judge. She was very personal and it was a happy day for me. I now have the same last name as my family with many thanks to Jennifer.


I was lucky to find Jennifer Fairfax through a web search of LGBT-friendly lawyers, and I knew upon our first meeting that she was the right lawyer for me. Jennifer is a solid legal professional who is also friendly and personable and will work hard. Even in today’s supposedly enlightened society, transsexuals have very few true friends. Jennifer Fairfax is a friend of the transgender community, and I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone in the trans community in need of legal assistance.
