Call Us for Legal Assistance in Growing Your Family

I decided to focus my practice on adoption when my wife and I adopted our son. I was inspired and changed by the experience and wanted to guide others to similar positive outcomes. Empathy, understanding and firsthand experience are key to effective legal representation in any adoption. I offer all of these attributes, as well as a longstanding reputation in New York's adoption community.

Our law firm offers a full range of legal services to adopting parents and birth parents, whether married or single, without regard to age, race, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation. Our paramount concern is that the adoption process be legal, ethical and meet the expectations of the parties and the best interests of the child.

  • Surrogacy & Assisted Fertility
  • Birth Parents
  • International Adoptions
  • Grandparent Adoptions
