Paul is a miracle worker! He single handedly made a complicated and frustrating process, manageable and smooth. Not only did Paul communicate with me frequently on our progress, but he also helped me to be calm and focus on the finalization. I cannot say enough positive things about Paul and he abilities.
We contacted Paul to assist us with the readoption (Recognition of Foreign Adoption) of our son from China. He was warm, knowledgeable, punctual and made this process so easy. He assisted us with other needs related to this as well. I understand it can be a difficult process, but you never would have known it. We thank Paul so much and will tell all of our friends and adoptive contacts about our experience!
Paul was referred to my family as an adoption attorney through Hand in Hand International Adoption agency who have worked with him for many years. Most of our contact was through e-mail, and he never skipped a beat in terms of coordinating the required documents, contacts, and meeting with the judge in order to complete our long awaited adoptions in 2012 and 2015. Waiting to complete all the legal requirements is the hardest part of adoption, and we were not in any way put off so that he could work with high dollar clients. He was kind and personable as well. We are now going to use him to review and update our will and trust.
He did all we wanted him to do for us. He is very responsible and knowledgeable. He made me and my family happy by doing our adoption paperworks. Now we have our birth certificates and we are ready to roll!
In April of this year, we worked with Paul to complete the re-adoption of our son, who we adopted from South Korea. Paul made the entire process very easy and stress free. He always responded to my many emails and phone calls the very same day!! The option to "phone-in" to the court was perfect for us! Recently, I had problems with USCIS in getting our son's Certificate of Citizenship corrected. I contacted Paul, and he immediately contacted immigration for me, and had my problems solved the same day!! Paul is the best!! I highly recommend Paul to anyone who may be adopting or may have questions about immigration.
We worked with Paul to recognize the adoption of our daughter, whom we brought home from China ten months ago. He was very knowledgeable about the process, very upfront about fees and paperwork, and very prompt to return phone calls. I would highly recommend him - and already have to several friends!
We used Paul Consbruck to handle the re-adoption procedures for our son who was adopted from China and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Mr. Consbruck was very clear and concise in describing how the entire process would work. We also had a very clear understanding of his fee structure from the beginning. There was minimal work required on our end and the ceremony for the final judgement was very pleasant and well run.
Paul helped us finalize the adoption of 2 girls from the Philippines. It requires a Court Hearing when adopting from the Philippines and Paul handled the case promptly. He was also able to arrange for us to testify before the Judge via telephone which was a significant savings of time and money.
I would not hesitate to recommend him any cases involving Family Law especially adoption.
Was very nervous to hire any attorney to re-adopt our Chinese child to get a birth certificate for our state of domicile. Paul Consbruck took care of it all. He spelled out our options, was very knowledgable re. the process which could have been complicated and was an excellent and timely communicator. I highly recommend this attorney for your needs. In this day and current time period, one needs someone to be able to clearly communicate and give you the bottom line honestly and make it easy.
We worked with Paul to do a re-adoption of out three children. He was extremely helpful, efficient, and affordable. We could not have been happier with the process. As an adoptive parent, himself, he gets what we are going through and really makes the extra effort. I felt that he cared and it was more than just business for him. This was especially evident when we faced challenges with USCIS and he provided invaluable advice that led to resolution without us having to enlist further legal services. I highly recommend him to any family in need of an adoption lawyer!
