About Me

I am dedicating my legal practice to helping clients build families through adoption and surrogacy.  As a trial lawyer since 2002, I have served as the lead attorney and co counsel on large federal and state cases.  I have chosen to transition my practice to adoption law and surrogacy so that that I can focus on building families.  I am dedicating to working with my clients to ensure that all the legal requirements are met -- to successfully create a family.  I look forward to talking with you about your interests in adoption.
