One of the greatest joys of my practice is creating a family through adoption or alternative reproduction procedures. As an adoptive parent myself, I have personally experienced the anxiety and anticipation that accompanies the process. While I can't guarantee a stress-free experience, I promise to work hard to make the process go as smoothly and quickly as possible. – Attorney Rebecca Perry
