We used Paul to file our foreign adoption with the US courts and to obtain a US birth certificate for our adopted daughter. Paul was extremely helpful and responded to all of our questions. He called us to explain our options. We communicated very effectively over email and phone. We had a court date within weeks of speaking with him and our finalization with the court in just over a month. We like the fact that he has a heart for adoptions and adoptive families as he is the father of adopted children himself. We were very pleased with the reasonable costs compared to other attorneys. I found him to be professional and would not hesitate to work with him again.

We adopted our son internationally. I wanted to "re-adopt" or domesticate the foreign judgement so that he could have a US birth certificate. I spoke to Paul and initially thought it was an expensive way to go. I thought I could do it myself. It was an incredible hassle. The last straw for me was when the clerk of my county court told me that the forms I was trying to file were the wrong forms. When I asked what the right forms were, she said "I don't know".
I then was referred to another resource, a para-legal. The rates she quoted me were the EXACT SAME as Paul's. Therefore, having made the decision to get help, I went with Paul since I had spoken to him first.
All my troubles, problems, hassles went away. Paul was a turn-key solution who did the job he promised, making it as effortless as possible for me. At the end of the day, we felt completely comfortable with the fee and our decision to have Paul take care of it, and would absolutely recommend him.

It was a pleasure working with Mr. Consbruck. He handled our foreign adoption with professionalism, and the overall process went very smoothly. He responded to emails/calls promply, and clearly guided us along the way. Would recommend to anyone looking for an adoption attorney!

After researching completing a readoption ourselves, we decided this should be handled by a professional. We had received Mr. Consbruck's contact information several years ago after the adoption of our daughter from Taiwan. We had waited several years before the readoption because of the cost involved on the heels of the immense cost of adoption. Since our daughter will be entering kindergarten, it became imperative to have her name changed, not to mention for the legal protections granted in undergoing a readoption. We contacted Mr. Consbruck's office, and he was prompt in answering our inquiry. Again, time slipped by, and Mr. Consbruck did not plague us with a multitude of correspondence trying to have us utilize his services. Then one day a gentle reminder came through via e-mail, which also informed us that certain filing fees were changing on a certain date. This reminder came through during the same time we were having difficulty with our daughter's Taiwanese adoption papers for acceptance into preschool, which drove home the fact that there was no time like the present. Procrastination now aside, we started the ball rolling. Mr. Consbruck was able to work around my husband's erratic schedule, and before we knew it we were having a simple phone conference with the judge, Mr. Consbruck, and our notary that officially made our sweet daughter legally our daughter in the eyes of the State of Florida. The ease of this legal proceeding was appreciated, and Mr. Consbruck kept us informed every step of the way. He also promptly delivered our Final Judgment and Florida Birth Certificates and let us know the next steps to take in regards to new citizenship papers. Had we tried to undertake this process ourselves, we are certain more cost and time would have been involved due to our complete inexperience. We would highly recommend Mr. Consbruck to be retained for your readoption. He is extremely professional, responsive, and competent. We would not hesitate to place our trust in him again.

Paul helped my husband and me obtain a Florida birth certificate for both of the children we adopted from Russia. He provided clear, simple instructions and helped us every step of the way. He was very responsive to questions and made sure we were prepared for the court hearing both times. I would recommend him for any legal work related to adoptions.

I could not have had a better experience with Paul, who handled my daughter's Recognition of Foreign Adoption. Paul was extremely knowledgable, pro-active, always quick to respond and made the entire process which included a hearing via phone, extremely easy. We are also going to utilize his services to create a guardianship and will. I highly recommend Paul to anyone who requires adoption services!

Paul successfully and smoothly completed the re adoption of our little girl just yesterday. Throughout the process he was knowledgeable, caring, understanding, thoughtful and patient. He guided us through it step by step and answered all of our questions until we felt confident. We recommend Paul with the highest regards and if needed we would request his services again. Thank you Paul!

Paul was so incredibly helpful as my husband and I sought to adopt our internationally adopted son here in Florida. Paul is very knowledgeable and experienced in this matter. We loved being able to submit the paperwork and then "appear" in court via phone with our notary rather than needing to appear in person. I would and have highly recommended Paul Consbruck's services to others.

Paul was fantastic in finalizing our international adoption by assisting us in the FL recognition of foreign birth and name change for our son. He was very knowledgeable of the FL law and extremely helpful and efficient in working through the process. Once we sent in our paperwork to Paul to officially begin the process, he worked immediately to secure a court date. Paul is a great resource as an attorney for adoptions and would highly recommend him to others.
