Representing Families With Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)

Our family law attorneys have dedicated their lives to serving the needs of families throughout the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. We assist parents with forming their families by assisted reproductive technology through surrogacy. Additionally, we counsel people who are seeking to help others as surrogates and egg donors and work with same-sex couples who are looking to strengthen their relationships through legal procedures including domestic partnerships and adoption.

We are dedicated to helping you achieve your goal of a family. In addition to counseling individuals and couples about their reproductive law options, we prepare comprehensive surrogacy, egg, sperm, and embryo donation contracts as well as timely and thorough parentage orders. No matter what your reproductive legal needs may be, we are here for you. We will carefully listen to you, create a contract to help you achieve your goals, and map out a plan to help you build your family.  Because of our family law knowledge and expertise, we are able to create an individualized plan that meets your wishes and complies with the District of Columbia law.
