Why Adoption?

At Herrin & Leach, we know and embrace the importance of your adoption. That's why we have created a firm that focuses solely on adoption. We believe attorneys who are committed to the adoption process best serve those families seeking to adopt and the children who need safe, loving families. We are committed to helping adoptive parents and expectant mothers navigate the adoption process.

Indiana adoption law is complex and ever-changing. It is not always easy for nonlawyers or lawyers who do not work exclusively in adoption to stay on top of the ever-changing laws. Since our focus is adoption, we understand the laws inside and out.

Why Experience Matters

After decades of adoption-focused law practice, we have seen that perhaps the biggest mistake people make is not working with a qualified and experienced adoption attorney. In fact, we have been involved in numerous contested and costly adoptions simply because the adoptive parents chose an inexperienced attorney at the beginning.
