The Stork Lawyer®
My name is Liz, although some people call me the StorkLawyer! I am a former infertility patient, author (The Infertility Survival Handbook (Riverhead 2004) and The Ultimate Insider’s Guide to Adoption (Warner Books, November 2006)), adoptive parent, lawyer and advocate for anyone trying to build their family through assisted reproductive technologies or adoption. I am an attorney practicing in the areas of:
In addition to offering a full range of adoption-related legal services I also assist families, donors and gestational carriers with their third-party reproductive agreements. Becoming a parent through modern techniques like ovum donation and gestational surrogacy present unique legal challenges to the parties involved. Among the issues you need an attorney to assist you with are those surrounding confidentiality and anonymity, informed consent, contact between the parties after birth, and the financial arrangements between the parties. The laws pertaining to ovum donation and gestational surrogacy vary from State to State. Whether you are an intended/recipient parent or a donor or surrogate, you need to know that you have a contract that protects your rights and is enforceable under applicable State law.
Whether you’re an intended parent or an egg donor, embryo donor, or surrogate we’ll make sure that your legal interests are protected.
My office also represents individuals and couples seeking to build their family through adoption and women (“emoms”) who are considering making an adoption plan for the baby they are carrying. Additionally, we help people with second and step-parent adoptions.
We also provide free and low-cost consulting services concerning your infertility treatment and for women who want to breast-feed their adoptive child or one born through a surrogacy arrangement.
I know first-hand the difficulties individuals and couples face when trying to build a family using assisted reproductive technologies or adoption. I know the financial and emotional challenges you are facing. Because of my own personal experience becoming a parent it is my mission to provide people trying to build their family through third-party assisted reproduction or adoption, or to make an adoption plan for the baby they are carrying, with compassionate and personalized legal and consulting services.
Please don’t hesitate to contact my office today for a free confidential consultation to discuss your family-building situation and see if we can help you.
