Colorado, Oklahoma, & New York Adoption & Surrogacy Attorney

Selflessness and bravery – these are two qualities we see most in the birth parents, adoptive parents, intended parents, and surrogates we represent. Through adoption or surrogacy, you are beginning a process that will forever change your life and the life of a child. Nothing could be more important, and that is why we are committed to delivering the personalized support, guidance, and legal representation you need every single step of the way. Over the last 26 years, Virginia has limited her practice to the sole focus of Adoption and Surrogacy Law. Our Colorado, New York and Oklahoma adoption and surrogacy attorneys are standing by to see how we can assist you.


“Safer at Home” and “Shelter in Place” orders are still in effect in many States. Many of the States who previously reopened are now closing again due to a resurgence of COVID-19. Please be aware that you will need to wear a mask and take social-distancing precautions while picking up your child.


The safety and wellbeing of our clients is extremely important to us. We are working closely with our Intended Parents, Gestational Carriers, Hospitals and colleagues as we continue to experience the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Lockdowns or “Shelter in Place” are in place in many US cities.

We highly recommend Intended Parents designate a Power of Attorney in the States to pick up and care for their child if they are unable to travel to the U.S./City/State by the time the child is born. Please be aware that some States and hospitals have different quarantine restrictions. Please check with your hospital for specific instructions. At this time, the hospital rules and regulations seem to be changing daily.

Intended Parents and/or their Power of Attorneys may need to be quarantined for at least 14 days before picking the child up from the hospital. Because of this measure, we recommend traveling at least 2-3 weeks before the birth of the child, if possible. If you are living in the United States, please plan to drive to the hospital instead of flying. Please understand that all government offices will more than likely be running at a diminished capacity while we are dealing with the virus.

Continue to seek and follow up with your medical provider on how to protect yourself and those around you. Additional information from CDC can be found here.
