"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Ellen on our contract so that I could become a carrier for our family friends. We felt so fortunate to have a thorough, respectful, and available attorney looking out for our best interests.  Thanks to Ellen, we were able to enter the agreement and this amazing process with much less anxiety."

~Gestational Carrier

"The minute we had a conference call, I knew she was the one to help me with my assisted reproduction legal issues. She has explained the process of how the court system works, initial contracts, revised contracts, final drafts, pre-birth orders and continued to be there when needed. She has been trustworthy, honest and responsible in handling our paperwork and guiding our path towards parenthood. There are no words to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation. Thank you for everything you have done."

~Intended Parent

"Ellen helped us tremendously with our very sensitive adoption case. She truly cares about what she does and is honest and genuine. We would highly recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat."

~Adoptive Mother
