4,000 characters cannot scratch the surface of the impact that Jennifer Fairfax has had on our lives. My husband and I have been blessed with two beautiful children, whom we love more than life itself, and that would not have happened without Jennifer. We first approached her about adopting in 2015, and she has been with us every step of the way since. Adopting, especially for same-sex couples, is a difficult, long, and emotional process. Jennifer prepared us for each step with direct, expert, and compassionate counsel. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the adoption laws of all 50 states, especially as concerns issues facing a same-sex couples, and she anticipates issues that despite our diligence, we would had never imagined. Beyond her professional excellence, Jennifer brings a clear and caring approach to her work that includes counseling about what to expect upon meeting birth parents for the first time, interacting at the hospital before placement, and managing relationships with birth families, adoption agencies, social workers, and government entities, all of which play important roles in the adoption process. Few lawyers (myself included) have done the good that Jennifer has with her career. We could not more highly recommend her and her practice to anyone interested in building a family!
