A Incredible Adoption Attorney
We were referred to Sophie by a very good customer of ours. She came highly recommended and we are more than satisfied with the adoption experience we had with her. She has an incredible knowledge of the adoption process and made our experience simple and painless. She was incredibly sweet and personable and truly seemed to care about my son and our family. She even went above and beyond when she blessed my son with a children's devotional book on the day of his adoption. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are to have had Sophie as our adoption attorney and would highly recommend her for any adoption needs you may have.
