Paula graduated from the University of California in 1978, and passed the California Bar that same year. Eventually, she went into private practice with her husband and her first case was an independent adoption. That experience became the initial step in what has become a long and storied journey. Paula was part of a small group of legal practitioners who helped merge bold new ideas in Family Law with innovative medical technologies in infertility. Today those efforts have become the cornerstone of a huge medical-legal industry in California that attracts people from all over the world  in need of surrogacy services and/or  egg donation, sperm donation and embryo donation. Paula has specialized in the area of Reproductive Law for over twenty-five years and has worked with some of the best doctors, medical clinics, and agencies in the state of California. Paula has worked successfully with all types of prospective parents and is experienced in the myriad laws necessary to establish parentage. Paula has hundreds of happy clients who, with her help, have achieved their life-long dream of becoming parents.
