San Diego-Based Surrogacy Attorney

California has some of the most progressive laws in the world regarding assistive reproduction. Every year, thousands of people come to our state to arrange a surrogate pregnancy or undergo a medical procedure to become pregnant by an egg, embryo or sperm donor.

If you intend to serve another party as a surrogate or donor, don't take legal protections for granted. It is important to retain an experienced lawyer to have your rights and responsibilities drafted in a legally binding agreement. Without an agreement, you may be opening yourself up to future litigation. It is also important to note that surrogacy law varies from state to state.

I am California reproductive law attorney Erin O'Kane, in Poway, California, near San Diego. I am one of only a handful of surrogacy attorneys in Southern California who practices exclusively in the area of reproductive law, and have done so for my entire career.

My experience includes working with:

  • Surrogates and carriers: Including gestational surrogacy, in which the fertilized egg is implanted in the surrogate, resulting in no genetic link between the surrogate and the child.
  • Egg donors and embryo donors: Including the process of selling an egg or embryo to an intended parent and all written agreements to protect your rights following the donation.
  • Sperm donors: Including drafting necessary agreements to protect yourself from future liability.
