Dedicated to facilitating Colorado adoptions

There were nearly 3,000 children adopted each year in Colorado between 2000 and 2008. With so many families choosing adoption, the demand for competent legal guidance is large. I have been a practicing Denver adoption lawyer for more than two decades. I am dedicated to helping families in all their adoption efforts, including:

  • Newborn and infant adoption
  • Adult adoption
  • Kinship adoption
  • Custodial adoption
  • Stepparent adoption
  • Third-party adoption

I clearly explain the intricacies of the various types of adoptions. I outline the steps in theadoption process and provide the necessary legal forms for each situation. Adoption is not a simple process, but I simplify it for you. And I celebrate with you when we achieve a positive result.

You have several options for adopting a child in Colorado. You can pursue:

  • A private adoption, contracting with a birth mother to adopt her newborn
  • An agency-assisted adoption of a child under the age of 18
  • International adoption, which requires re-adoption here following adoption in a foreign court

Put your faith in me as an experienced Denver child custody attorney. I know the ins and outs of adoption and can assist you in establishing your new family.
