Ms. Fishbein has been doing adoption law for years and years, and it shows. She walked my wife and I through the entire adoption process - she gave us so much helpful insight and made an uncertain process very clear and straightforward. I couldn't recommend her more strongly.

We first met with Ronnie for an initial meeting in the spring of 2015 and were amazed by the depth of her knowledge on inter-state adoptions. Six months later she handled our private adoption and took care of everything quickly, from the surrender to the finalization. We were able to trust her to take care of everything and with the stress of having a newborn at home it was great not to have to worry about the status of the paper work. Even after finalization she has remained very accessible to us as we've had questions.

My wife and I hired Ms. Fishbein to assist us in an adoption. My wife ended up passing away before the adoption was over with. Ms. Fishbein was able to use all of her resources to allow me to continue to adoption process on my own as a single parent adoption. I had already fell in love with my son and was really afraid that I would not get approved to adopt him on my own but Ms. Fishbein has made it possible for me to keep our son. It is my dream to raise him the way my late-wife and I dreamed about raising him. I will make sure he will always know how much she loved him. Ms. Fishbein saved our lives from being torn away from each. My son and I are together and this has allowed me the opportunity to heal my grieving process. Every time I look into his eyes I can see the love my late-wife poured into him. There is nothing I can ever do to repay Ms. Fishbein for what she has done but I will make sure I tell every same-sex couple I know that is looking to adopt about Ms. Fishbein.

I have known Rhonda Fishbein for many years as a fellow member of AAAA and have worked on a number of interstate adoption cases with her. She is wise, competent, and caring. I respect Ms. Fishbein's expertise and experience and have confidence in her judgment and dependability when I refer adoption clients to her. She is a credit to her chosen profession.
