Mark has handled all four of my adoptions over the last several years - most recently in december 2013. From my perspective, I would say he genuinely simplifies the process. His fees are very reasonable. He has a terrific support staff. If you have questions or need follow up on something, I don't think I have ever had to wait more than an hour for a response. I can't think of a single way Mark could improve his practice. I have worked with several attorneys in several different practice areas over the years - Mark is the top of the heap.

Mark helped us with our adoption and it was a great experience. Could not have gone more smoothly and ended up under estimated costs overall - plus he helped us understand the Adoption Tax Credit to get our fees and costs refunded.

Mr. Demaray helped us through an adoption. The birth Mom was very young and we were exhausted after 15 years of infertility and failed adoptions. I was so frightened and excited at the possibility. He made us aware of a tax credit that actually covered all his fees. He stayed in constant contact through the waiting period. His office continues to be involved today facilitating our annual communication between our family and the birth mother. He gives attorneys a good name.

I endorse this lawyer's work. I have known and worked with Mark Demaray on adoption related matters for over 17 years. He is highly respected in the adoption community not only locally but nationally for both his integrity and his ability.
