The Quality of Your Representation MATTERS to your Adoption!

We’re pleased to have helped with adoptions from each of the nations represented by the flags on our website –43 countries so far. We've been trusted by over 900 families to handle this most precious transaction.

We are qualified to practice before the US Supreme Court, and all Maryland and Florida Courts. We can help.


Readoption establishes U.S. Citizenship, and allows you to apply for a U.S. Certificate of Citizenship, if your child came home on an IR4 visa or IH4 visa.

Recognition of Foreign Adoption

Recognition of Foreign Adoption allows you to obtain a Florida birth certificate so you do not have to rely on the foreign birth certificate, and assume the risk of losing it.

Domestic Adoptions

Domestic Adoptions are an important part of our practice as well, building families one child at a time.

Wills, Trusts, and Guardianship

Wills, Trusts, and Guardianship will give you the peace of mind that your minor child is protected if something unfortunate happens to you. For more information on these services visit

Name or Birthdate Change

Name or Birthdate Change is sometimes needed when foreign-born children come home to the U.S. with birth certificates that do not match their physical development.


Immigration matters related to adoption can be complex and legal representation is an important consideration.

"But I can't do anymore paperwork!"

With adoptions in 43 countries, we’re qualified before the US Supreme Court and all Maryland & FL courts. Why does this matter to your situation?

You’ve adopted your precious little one from overseas, but one of the most important things you can do to make things easier for yourself and your child is to complete a U.S. re-adoption.
