Gay parents and their children pose for a photo

While many states, including New York, recognize same-sex marriage, there are still many jurisdictions around the country and around the world where this is not the case.  For this reason, same sex couples and their families need special legal protections.  We specialize in working with LGBT families. Our knowledge of the most current laws and rulings affecting LGBT families in New York State will be brought to bear in representing you, and we will make sure you are aware of any risks or uncertainties.

We can help with:

  • Donor Agreements
  • Second-Parent, Foster and Private-Placement Adoptions
  • Estate Planning, Probate and Administration
  • Pre-nuptial Agreements

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender partners and parents face unique challenges. Despite this, there is a lot you can do to secure the future of your family, and we are here to help.
