If you dream of starting or expanding your family, but need a helping hand to get there, we’re here for you. We will be with you every step of the way as you navigate what will be one of the most important journeys you take in life.
This is one of the few times in life where the law intersects with what is typically a very private matter. We recognize that, and provide you with the legal and emotional support you need to successfully build your family. There will be unique challenges that require expert legal advice. Our lawyers are highly skilled in navigating the issues you will face. We take great pride in alleviating the legal stressors that can accompany this process. Let us help you.
We represent intended parents, donors and gestational carriers (also known as surrogates). As a client, you will receive guidance, support, and unfettered access to our compassionate surrogacy attorneys. We are honored to assist all types of families, including individuals, heterosexual couples, and same-sex couples.
When an intended parent decides to pursue a surrogacy arrangement, we assist with drafting and negotiating the legal agreement that will govern the parties’ roles and responsibilities, known as a Gestational Carrier Agreement (“GCA”). Additionally, we will provide the documents required by the fertility clinic and help our clients navigate pre-birth hospital procedures as well as the post-birth legal process.
For our gestational carrier clients, we will negotiate the terms of the GCA and ensure that our gestational carriers are properly provided for and fully understand the process that will unfold. For our donor clients, we draft and negotiate the donor agreement that will dictate the terms of the donation of his or her genetic material.

- Drafting of Gestational Carrier Agreements
