As an adoption professional, I have had the honor of working closely with Madonna Finney over the past 4 years. I have referred many families to Madonna's office, each one having positive adoption experiences. Madonna knows adoption law like the back of her hand and works diligently, ethically, and compassionately to see to that each family's experiences is a good one.
Beyond that however, Madonna's Finney's entire office provides amazing care for both birth families and adoptive families. This firm gives full service, quality care to all involved in the adoption process.
Madonna has been a valuable resource to me as I have grown in my work in the field of adoption. She has answered every question I have thrown at her with clarity and incredible wisdom, and has been a valuable asset to me.
I am blessed to be associated with Madonna Finney Law Office and cannot say enough good about the passion and commitment she pours into her work in the field of adoption.

We used Madonna Finney for our private adoption and could not have been happier or more comfortable. We were reluctant to do a domestic adoption due to all the problems you hear about them. When the opportunity came up for a private, domestic adoption Madonna was there for us at the drop of a hat. This came up over a holiday weekend and she was very responsive and had it all ready to go in a matter of days so our son came home to us immediately. We finalized in record time, just 8 days over what the state requires. Being new to the domestic adoption scene we had a lot of questions and none were too small for Madonna. She answered all of them with confidence and really eased our minds thru out the entire process. We really feel that having an attorney who only does adoption is the way to go. We didn't want our child's future taken care of by someone who may be dividing their attention between mutiple fields of law. You can tell that she and her staff have a passion for adoption and I cannot give high enough praise for what she did for our family. Had she not been there our son would probably still be stuck in the system.
