Steve was the main lawyer we dealt with. He was blunt and honest about everything but that was what we were wanting. He was very nice and laid back. He was very organized and prompt when dealing with our case.

Steve is very forward and honest. That's exactly what we were looking for. He didn't sugarcoat or give you unrealistic hope. He was very helpful. He was there for us even when we had not committed, answering questions to help us make a sound decision. He went above and beyond due to our situation that things were handled quickly.

I wish we had found Kirsh when we started our adoption journey. We tried a less expensive agency, but it was not a good fit. Kirsh did a really good job of talking us through match situations and helping us assess risk. After a painful failure with a different agency, we felt Kirsh and Kirsh was our bright light in the dark forest of adoption. We knew this firm was knowledgeable, responsive, and committed to helping us with our goal of having a family. They were always looking out for our best interests. They are true professionals, and you don't always get that with the bargain priced agencies. We strongly recommend Kirsh!

I would recommend Attorney Steve Kirsh to anyone. He was reliable, responsive, and kept me informed and made the entire experience very easy on me. I can't thank him enough.

We had heard of Kirsh & Kirsh’s excellent reputation for years, and had met several couples that had used their services. When we made the decision to expand our family through adoption, they were our first choice. From our first initial meeting to follow up visits to show off our adopted son, the entire staff was amazing. They truly are a family run business, and you experience that from the very beginning. What can be a very emotional journey with many turns; Steve, Joel and staff were all by our sides the entire time and provided the words and encouragement we desperately needed.
We have begun the adoption process again. Not only are we anxious to add to our family, we sincerely look forward to working with the entire staff once again. We know we are in good hands and they are always looking out for our best interests. The level of experience and professionalism is bar none. Contacting Steve and Joel Kirsh was one of the best decisions we ever made, and will most likely be yours as well.

The Best Adoption Attorney firm around. I came to Steven Kirsh through a friend 18 years ago. He made everything very clear and easy to understand. Today, I look at my 17-year-old son and I just feel so blessed.

There are two sides to every coin. We elected to use Kirsh & Kirsh to grow our family. Having experienced a successful International adoption in Guatemala and having the country abruptly stopping the process while we decided to adopt another child, we elected to look domestically. Being in Ohio, we had two recommendations come from friends, one attorney in California and one in Indiana – Kirsh & Kirsh. After interviewing with the two firms, we elected to go with Kirsh & Kirsh.
Steve Kirsh laid out the program they offered, the fees that were involved, the fact about the birth-mother and that she has the right to say no to the adoption at the very last second, and ALL of the risks and heart ache that may come with the open adoption process. These discussions are driven by facts and years of experience. This discussion is blunt and to the point and I can see some people feeling taken aback by them; however, the discussion and expectations of what will happen are real.
Our initial interview with selected birth-parents went extremely well. After returning home and finding out that we were selected to be the adoptive parents can not be expressed in written words. When you get he call – it is awesome! This joy would soon turn to sadness when we received the call and were told that the child would not be placed for adoption and would be raised by the birth mother. The comforting call from Steve and his staff made this heart wrenching moment bearable. He did remind us that he told us this could happen – and it did.
Only a few months later, we received “the call” again. We were selected to be the adoptive parents of a child to be born in several months. The circumstances that were involved with our adoption; the young birth parents, the trip planning, and ultimately the state of Indiana and Ohio laws for adoption were nerve wracking. With all that was going on in the background, Kirsh & Kirsh was there by our side and definitely earned our respect for all that they do.
As you select the “open” adoption process, keep in mind that your “family” will grow. We are blessed with a phenomenal birth mother and family that keep in tough with “our” child. This new family can seem strange to others; however, it is your family and you make it what it is! We count our blessings and are thankful to the staff at Kirsh & Kirsh. They are looking out for your best interest! Trust the process…….it works!

I first came in contact with Kirsh & Kirsh over 20 years ago. I was a scared pregnant teen that decided to give my baby the best life possible - adoption. The Kirsh & Kirsh team explained all of my options and walked me through the process of what they could and would provide. They did EXACTLY what they said they would do...and MORE! I have nothing but POSITIVE things to say about this group of wonderful individuals. THANKS for all you did and continue to do!

Words cannot describe the debt of gratitude we owe to Steve Kirsh for his contribution to the most important moment of our lives. Adopting for us was such a deeply personal and wildly emotional rollercoaster ride threatening to spiral out of control at every turn. We are overjoyed to say that because of Steve Kirsh, things could not have gone better.
Steve showed himself to be caring, committed and concise with incredible attention to detail. with him blazing the trail ahead, there was a red carpet waiting for us at every turn. Not only did he instill a tremendous sense of confidence in us, but from the hospital staff to the social workers to the State agencies and ultimately to the Judge, it's clear that Steve is HIGHLY respected by everyone.
The admiration for Steve also carried over to his staff. My husband and I had an opportunity to visit the Kirsh & Kirsh office and found an extremely warm and loving environment. We give Steve Kirsh a recommendation of the highest order and believe you will be well served by placing your trust in him.
