Our Family Law Practice Group is familiar with the intricacies of direct-placement adoptions, agency adoptions, and foster parent adoptions, as well the Indian Child Welfare Act, and we have the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure that your adoption is completed without delay.

Our attorneys represent prospective adoptive parents in a wide range of circumstances, including stepparent adoptions, international adoption and interstate adoptions, relative adoption, and co-parent adoptions. We also provide representation to birth parents who are considering signing consents to permit an adoption to take place.
