Our adoption attorneys also work with clients who wish to pursue assisted reproductive technologies to build their families. In-vitro fertilization (IVF), donor egg or sperm, gestational carrier arrangements, traditional surrogacy, and embryo adoption, among other options. These are all complex processes that require a seasoned attorney who understands the latest advances and can ensure that your rights are protected. In these areas, where real life is often ahead of the law and the legislature, the legal approaches must be as cutting-edge as the technology.

Let our firm help your family grow. Whatever your situation or chosen option, we welcome the opportunity to assist you.

“Mrs Rosenburg handled everything that came out of the adoption process in such a way that we were always at ease and comfortable with the way things were going. She was always responsive and made sure that we were aware of how things might go and how things could turn out. She took something that could have been extremely stressful to us and our little family and made it all turn out to be the best possible outcome. We will be forever grateful for all of her hard work that ultimately made it possible for us to continue to raise our precious little girl in a home with the kind of love and stability that she deserves. I don’t think we will ever feel like we’ve done or said enough to thank her for everything she has done for our family.” – Jolene D.

“In a legal situation that was daunting, confusing, and thoroughly stressful, the team at KNM was indispensable. The attorneys were knowledgeable, prompt, patient, and communicative. Always taking the time to walk me through the processes & what to expect in the next steps. I couldn’t recommend a better group of professionals.” – Nick B.

“They are superior in their understanding of the law and compassionate about solving their clients’ problems.” – Jeff & Janet
