Hello!  My name is Liz Vaysman and I am an experienced family law attorney in the Greater Philadelphia area.  I am an Associate with the Family Law Group of Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP. I started my legal career as a legal assistant and then adoption attorney with an adoption agency, and opened my own law firm, Vaysman Legal LLC, in 2018.  Through my practice I counsel clients on complex and emotional legal needs - from working with expectant or adoptive parents on adoption matters, to working with donors in egg, embryo, or sperm donor agreements or gestational carriers on surrogacy arrangements. I am passionate about advocating for families and children, and look forward to learning how I can help you with your family's needs today.

Highly Recommend
We are so grateful to Liz for all that she did to welcome our little girl into our family! I highly recommend Liz to anyone looking for an adoption attorney. She's incredibly thorough and helpful throughout the process. I will never forget our first phone conversation when she went through every single step and covered things I never would have thought of - we felt so prepared on the day our daughter was born! Liz is compassionate, caring and incredibly knowledgeable in her field.

5 stars all around
my Husband and I hired Liz to assist with our domestic adoption and were beyond impressed with the service that we received. Liz got to know us on a personal level and always made us feel comfortable. She is caring, compassionate and truly cares about the work that she does. Adoption can be scary, intimidating and confusing at times but Liz always made sure we knew our options and that we fully understood the process. If you are looking to be in the best hands, look no further!

Amazing person to work with
Liz is an amazing person to work with! She helped us through the adoption of our little baby boy and we couldn't have been happier with her services. Liz is very professional, extremely responsive, and one of the kindest people we worked with throughout this process. I can't say enough great things about her. I highly recommend her and would definitely use her again in the future.

What can I say, we just love Liz. She is clearly very knowledgeable and she was able to explain every step along this process in a way that we felt confident in what we needed to accomplish. Liz is friendly and professional. We couldn’t have been happier!

Great experience!
My husband and I absolutely loved working with Liz. She was so friendly and explained everything thoroughly to us throughout the entire adoption process. She was very quick to respond to all of our questions and was always checking in on us and our daughter! We appreciate her and her help! Thank you, Liz!

Thank you Liz and Vaysman Legal!
Working with Liz and Vaysman Legal during the adoption of our daughter was a great part of our experience. Having an attorney that is responsive, thorough, and compassionate helped to alleviate any stress that can certainly be present throughout the process of adoption. Liz Vaysman, the owner/founder of the firm is extremely knowledgeable in the field of adoption and family services. She gave us the ability to proceed with confidence through our adoption journey. We would highly recommend the services of Vaysman Legal to anyone pursuing adoption; or anyone who is considering adoption.

Highly recommended adoption lawyer who really takes the time.
We had the opportunity to work with Liz Vaysman through the adoption of our daughter in June 2019. We first met Liz at an information session at our agency and felt that she truly listened to us and what we were asking about. She took the time to talk to us, even staying after the session to get to know us and our journey. We had previous dealings with another agency and we're a bit hesitant to commit based on that experience, but talking with Liz put us at ease. During the process, she was always available either by email or phone. Her communications were clear and always easy to follow. Her rate was fair and I never felt like if we sent an extra email or took some time on the phone to talk through something that we were being rushed. Liz really took the time with us and made us feel like we were her only priority. We appreciate everything she did for us and our family. We highly recommend her to anyone.
