We are the leaders in Ohio fertility law. Ellen was one of the first attorneys in this practice area in Ohio, if not the first. Rachel speaks regularly about fertility law throughout the country. She is also licensed in Illinois.

We’re proud to say we are involved in over 200 surrogacy matters per year, helping hopeful parents and surrogates build families. We also provide cutting-edge legal representation in family formation through egg, sperm, and embryo donation. In all matters, we guide our clients through complex legal issues with nuanced, practical solutions to ensure their families are in the best legal position possible.

Our clients are intended parents and surrogates, recipients and donors, married and single, and of all sexual orientations and genders. Our clients also have some connection to Ohio or Illinois, as fertility law varies dramatically state by state and it is crucial to have legal representation in the jurisdictions applicable to each matter.

Our practice is bustling. At the same time, we place great significance on making each client feel like our only client, with individualized counsel and responsive communications. Interested in speaking further? Contact us to see how we may be able to assist in your family-building journey.

Our team of attorneys consists of Ellen Essig, Rachel Loftspring, and Demetra Stamatakos.
