I apologize if there are NYC attorney referrals in past postings. I did a search and did not turn up specific names. Unfortunately, our anonymous donation needs to become non-anonymous because of some donor test results, and I would prefer to go with an independent attorney for this contract.

Can anyone with experience please provide input?

Thanks

MB is very pricey. In the very, super specialized area I turned to her for input on, she was actually wrong as I learned from a far cheaper, but more experienced, more gracious attorney in that specific arena. Having said that, MB is probably fine, but expensive, for a simple contract. Also, she does have a series of home-runs to her name in the legal arena surrounding surrogacy, but that was not the area for which I needed help.

Hi, I appreciate your feedback too. You may not feel comfortable sharing the name of your gracious attorney, but thought I would ask. We are not using surrogacy, this will be a DE only contract.

I did call MB's office based on the previous poster's recommendation, and the paralegal was responsive and seemed knowledgeable. Haven't hard time to reach out to others yet...

Thanks
