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.\”

Courtney helped my husband and I with the adoption of our son. Working with her was a wonderful experience. She was very knowledgeable and patient in answering all of our questions. She was also so responsive and available throughout the process. It was such a relief to work with someone who knows what they are talking about and knows people to help speed the process along after just having waited so long to match and bring our baby home. She helped us overcome the legal side of things quickly and efficiently. We will definitely use her again!\”

My wife and I are foster parents and in the course of our fostering, we made a connection with a family who asked us to adopt their newborn son. Since this was a private adoption outside of the foster care system, we had no idea where to turn for an attorney and we feared we would never be able to afford the expense. After reaching out to several family attorneys and being discouraged by outrageous fees, phone calls not being returned, and conflicting advice on how best to proceed, our adoption agency recommended Courtney. Our experience with her has been amazing. She was quick to respond to texts and emails, is extremely knowledgeable about the adoption process and was able to answer all of our questions, and her rates were much more reasonable than the other attorneys we had spoken to. She always made us feel like our case was a top priority, and we were told by many observers that ours was one of the fastest and least expensive adoptions they had ever seen. We were very blessed to have Courtney as our advocate in this process and we would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an adoption attorney.\”

Courtney Howell-Kidd is amazing! We adopted from Arizona and she handled a complicated adoption case like a BOSS. Her advice is honest, she is quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and her prices are fair. She really took an interest in our family and that meant a lot. Our final court proceedings went off without a hitch and now our daughter is officially ours! My husband and I would recommend her to anyone adopting a baby and needs a lawyer to represent them!\”
