New Jersey Surrogacy Attorneys

Deciding to have a child is one of the most important and personal decisions that any couple can make. When dealing with assisted reproductive technologies, surrogates and intended parents alike deserve peace of mind that all parties' rights and responsibilities are clearly spelled out, and that they can proceed with confidence in the process of conceiving a child through surrogacy.

Guston & Guston, LLP, has an established adoption and reproductive law practice to assist people in New Jersey with these complex and delicate legal matters. Our attorneys have decades of combined experience handling high-stakes family law matters, and in few situations are the stakes higher than when a couple and a surrogate must agree on the terms of surrogacy. Our firm is proud to help make this process less complicated and more rewarding for our clients.

In addition to her decades of experience, managing partner Debra E. Guston is a Fellow of the American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys.
