Adoption Law   

Steve 1As an attorney and a proud adoptive father of my daughter Katherine, I have seen just about every joy and difficulty that one can experience.

Many people told me that parenthood is a long rewarding journey. Few realize that for many people simply becoming parents is a long difficult journey in and of itself. But for those of you, like me, who have struggled to have children, I assure you that the gift of adoption is amazing, and worth the struggle. There will be tears, long nights, questions without answers, but in the end it will all be forgotten as you help someone in need, and change the life of a child.

Whether you are a family seeking to adopt or you are a birth parent considering an adoption I would welcome the opportunity to share my story with you and give you the proper legal guidance that you need to assure that adoption is the right choice for you and your family.
