    5-Star Review by Jessica

  • Courtney is a Godsend. You will not find a nicer or more knowledgable adoption attorney. She was kind and compassionate towards our individual case, and very approachable and friendly. She helped us understand the process thoroughly as we finalized the adoption of our son, and has a wonderful presence in the court room. Her fees were very reasonable. In our opinion she is the most professional adoption attorney in the Louisville area. We will be recommending her within the adoption community for years to come.”
