We found Mrs. Patton on Yahoo, I sent an email, with the specifics of our adoption, she responded promptly and advise the steps we needed, sent her a deposit all documents, within weeks we had court. The process was so much easier and less stressful than what we thought. Mrs. Patton has excellent knowledge on the adoption process. We highly recommend her and greatly thank her for making our adoption stress free.

Denise came highly recommended to us from another couple who (like us) needed her services for a coparent adoption. Navigating the court system can be stressful, especially when it comes to family matters, and we are so glad we had Denise on our side. Our case hit a few road bumps, and Denise worked tirelessly to make sure we achieved our desired outcome. She was a true advocate for our family, and for that I will be forever grateful.

We met Denise at an adoption conference about a year before we came home with our son and immediately felt we could trust her, so we hung onto her contact information. When we came with our son via international adoption, Denise patiently walked us through all the legal processes for his birth certificate, passport, and re-adoption. We always felt we were in excellent hands and Denise made sure everything ran smoothly. When we brought home our daughter 2 1/2 years later, we went straight to Denise to complete all of the same processes again. Besides having total command of adoption law and how to navigate the system, Denise is kind, efficient and committed. She answered all of our (hundreds!) of questions with patience and knowledge. Whenever we were with her, she always made us feel we were her priority. We have since recommended her to other families in need of an adoption attorney, and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need.
