Virginia Frank Surrogate Attorney

Gestational Carrier Attorney

Helping Surrogates Navigate Colorado, Oklahoma, & New York Surrogacy Proceedings

As a Gestational Carrier (Surrogate), you probably have a lot of questions and concerns about your rights, what to expect during the surrogacy process, and how your interests can be protected.

Over the last 30 years, Virginia has limited her practice to the sole focus of Surrogacy and Adoption Law. She can help you navigate these complicated matters with professionalism, competence, and care.

Virginia has extensive experience with surrogacy and adoption and can help with the negotiation and preparation of necessary legal agreements, as well as represent your interests before, during, and after pregnancy.

Contact Virginia Frank today to find out more about services for Gestational Carriers.

Professional Counsel for Gestational Surrogates

When Virginia Frank represents Surrogates, she recognizes the fact that they are undertaking a physically and emotionally challenging journey. Our goal is to protect her legal interests and to provide all the support we can.

In any given case, our  surrogate lawyer will only represent one of the parties. Our office will help find competent legal counsel for the unrepresented party, as all parties to a Gestational Carrier Agreement need to have separate legal representation.
