LORI MEYERS and MILENA O’HARA have experience handling thousands of surrogacy and egg donor matters since 1997, involving a variety of genetic arrangements, agencies and medical facilities. Today’s technology has advanced to an extremely high level, with success rates higher and more encouraging than ever. Our expertise with respect to the intricate nature of in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, donor egg and sperm, and embryo adoption technologies has been relied upon by countless couples to understand their legal rights and obligation as medical procedures begin. A major factor in the success of reproductive law arrangements is a strong legal contract outlining these legal rights so that all parties can rely on each others’ commitments and parental rights may be finalized well in advance of the birth of a child. It is important to us that all parties feel positive about the agreements they sign and the babies they are working hard to create.
