Jennifer and Catelyn are both fantastic! Very knowledgeable, thorough, and responsive when we had questions. We will be using them again for the next adoption!

Jennifer Fairfax was very thorough and prompt with her communications, both email and phone. She made sure that I understood everything in my contract and took the time to answer any questions that I had.

My wife and I worked with Jennifer Fairfax in 2012-2013. We relocated from Florida to complete our second/step parent adoption process. Married in 2010, but not yet considered legally married nation-wide, we knew a legal adoption was necessary to protect our family. Jennifer was great to work with in person, and electronically. Contract drafts back and forth via email, always a prompt response to our questions, a true delight and attention to detail ... always. We are now expecting baby 2 and would whole-heartedly recommend Jennifer Fairfax to anyone who has questions or is looking to protect their family via legal parentage.

Jennifer and Catelyn were extremely professional! My situation required I start the process while deployed overseas which seemed daunting initially, but Jennifer ensured the process was smooth and kept me informed at all times. Great service and highly recommended!

We can't say enough good things about our two adoption experiences with Jennifer. We jokingly refer to her as a legal "pitbull" with a smile on her face. She's straight forward, no nonsense and always had our best interests at heart as our attorney. In our opinion, she simply is the best of the best in terms of adoptions in the DC area.

My partner and I came to Mrs.Fairfax referred by a friend seeking help on a second parent adoption.
Mrs. Fairfax helped us to obtain the second parent adoption for both my son and my daughter in a matter of weeks. Not only she was honest and knowledgeable but also very sympathetic to our situation.
We fought a MD judge with the help of another lawyer for over 3 years for a resolution on a petition for a second parent adoption for my first son with no result and no end insight.
Desperate, we came to Mr. Fairfax and she obtained in weeks what our other attorney was not able to accomplish in 3 years. And she did it for a fraction of what we ended up paying the former attorney in the course of the 3 year battle.
I highly recommend hiring her services. We are very grateful for her help. Having my name on my children's birth certificate, has no price...

Jennifer is an outstanding attorney. Specifically, we used her for our son's adoption. She kept me well informed and answered all of my questions either the same day or by the end of the next business day. She even took a call on a weekend from me. Twice she went above and beyond. First when we were down and out about being passed up so many times, she found us an adoption agency that within 6 months delivered our son to us and second assisted us with the financials. I couldn't say enough good things. She wasn't just an attorney, she was a trusted adviser and friend.

My partner gave birth to our daughter early last summer. We wanted to make sure that our family was legally protected (in all 50 states) so I retained Jennifer to help me legally adopt our baby. Jennifer was extremely knowledgeable about what would be involved and was always available to answer any questions. Her associate, Catelyn, was wonderful as well. The fee was reasonable and they guided us through the process every step of the way. I would recommend Jennifer Fairfax to anyone wishing to adopt.

Jennifer and her staff helped my wife and I navigate the rapidly changing legal landscape for our family. Our sons were born in DC, but we reside in VA, and have a legal (in DC) marriage. She and her staff walked us through the paperwork needed to complete a second-parent adoption in the District. It was an incredibly easy process, and Jennifer took our busy (4 year old twins!!) lives into account in our communications. Adoption day went off without a hitch. We were very pleased to have had someone so confident and well-versed in our corner. I can recommend Ms. Fairfax without reservation.

Several years ago, Jennifer Fairfax represented me in the adoption of my daughter. Simply stated, she is the best. Extremely thorough, compassionate, capable of overcoming obstacles and able to think strategically and act quickly. I admit to being a bit nervous at the onset of the process, but Ms. Fairfax's expertise guided me through the various processes with ease and a full understanding on my part, of the various steps involved. She kept me informed through every phase and I would engage her again without hesitation. I can't recommend her highly enough!
