Helping Families Grow By Providing Caring Legal Representation
Laws regarding surrogacy, egg donations and sperm donations vary by state. In some states, surrogacy is illegal or surrogacy contracts are unenforceable. The laws outside the United States also vary widely. While my practice is based in California, I provide assistance to people who seek out surrogates who live in and give birth in California.
I use my knowledge to help individuals and families with all aspects of reproductive law, including:
- Becoming a surrogate, carrier or donor: Are you considering becoming a surrogate or donor of sperm, eggs or embryos? Sharing the gift of life with a prospective parent is a generous and admirable choice. I can walk you through the legal process and make sure your rights are protected.
- Becoming a parent through nontraditional means: I help intended parents pursue their dreams of starting a family through surrogacy, embryo donation and other nontraditional paths. I also help same-sex couples and single parents.
