South and Central New Jersey Adoption Lawyer

If you are considering filing for adoption in south or central New Jersey or along the Jersey shoreline, you want an attorney who fully understands the adoption process, who will help you identify your options, and who will protect your interests. An adoption can bring a lot of joy into your life, but the process is complex and requires attention to detail. When an adoption falls apart, there are significant emotional and financial consequences.

We work directly with New Jerseys Department of Youth and Family Services (DYFS), as well as the Monmouth County Adoption Agency. We have also been counsel to clients who have used a number of private adoption agencies throughout south New Jersey. We have a comprehensive understanding of the adoption process and will safeguard your rights in an adoption while saving you time and money.

When you hire us to handle your adoption proceeding, you will get the same personal involvement from our attorney that all clients receive. All your phone calls will be answered within 24 hours and you will always know the status of your adoption. Well explain what is happening and your options at every step in the process.
