Top Tier!
Nate is hands down the best of the best! We felt like we were in good hands the whole time through our adoption of our beautiful daughter. He was quick to respond, helpful on all questions asked and all around just a great communicator. We will forever be grateful and appreciative we chose to work with such a grade A attorney like Nate Leach!

Nate did an outstanding job with our step parent adoption. He communicated with confidence, was very organized, and always made time for our calls/emails. We are so happy we hired Nate to handle such an important matter.

The attorney to use to help navigate your adoption journey!
Mr. Leach was very easy to work with from here in Virginia! In adopting my son from Indiana his care, professionalism, and attention to detail far exceeded my expectations especially working with us as if we were sitting in his office during each interaction. He is a true advocate for children in need of families!

Adoption
He took a process that, in our situation, would have been stressful and nerve wracking and made it pretty much a breeze. I really do appreciate his help.

Efficient and Friendly
When you're dealing with the emotional ups and downs of an adoption, the last thing you want to have to worry about is all the legalese involved. Nate was everything we wanted and needed in an adoption attorney: timely, personable, responsive, professional, and to-the-point. He made things as simple and streamlined as possible. He corresponded directly with social workers and out-of-state attorneys when necessary and made the legal side of our son's adoption quick and painless. Thanks to him, we were able to finalize just over two months post-placement. He even somehow managed to squeeze us in for our court hearing before the end of the calendar year, (Dec 29th), which we honestly didn't think would happen. It was wonderful working with him, and we would absolutely utilize his services again!

Nate was very responsive and helpful during the placement and finalization of our daughter. Birth and placement happened rather quickly and we felt very comfortable working with Nate. He cared about all parties involved and was available anytime to answer our questions.

making our family complete
We had been searching for a good lawyer so my husband could adopt my son and we just so happen to find Nathan Leech. He is a true answer to our prayers and could not be happier with the outcome and how Nathan did everything for us especially during this crazy tie of covid.

Adoption
It was great getting a chance to work with Nate. He was very personable, very upfront, very knowledgeable in his field of work. It was very helpful that he knew other state laws not just ours. His response time was great and I can’t speak more highly enough about him.

Hands down, #1 adoption attorney out there!
Need an adoption attorney? Mr. Leach is the man for the job! Seriously, this sounds like an ad, but Nate goes above and beyond to make sure you and your loved ones are represented. He knows the adoption laws inside out and has no problem working with other attorneys or Dcs to make sure you and your kiddos have everything needed to start your new lives as a forever family! We just finalized our adoption on Friday!! Nate made it easy and stress-free. So easy and stress free, we hired him for the third time!
