Perhaps the most joyful part of our practice is helping families grow through adoptions. We represent families in Washington, D.C., and Maryland with adoptions of all types.
We can represent you in a traditional adoption, step-parent adoption, second-parent adoption, and readoption of a child born or adopted outside the United States.
Lippman, Semsker & Salb has extensive experience assisting families with adoption. We can advise you during your adoption process, we can assist you in finding the right adoption agencies or resources, and we can assist you with your adoption finalization. Attorneys in other states frequently call on us to represent women and men locally who are considering placing their children for adoption or taking consents for adoption from older children.
Adoptions are sometimes performed by married couples, unmarried couples, single people, and step parents. We have experience in all areas of adoption.
We have a long history of assisting gay and lesbian couples with second-parent adoptions, a process which permits a non-married spouse who is raising a child with a biological parent, to gain equal parental status. For more information about second-parent adoptions, click here.

And we have the litigation skills to ensure that any problems that arise can be addressed as effectively and efficiently as possible. You can be certain that you will receive a great deal of personal attention and knowing that you will work directly with your attorney.
As a special added value to our clients, we always prepare a complete estate plan for our adoption clients.
It will be our great pleasure to assist you.
