Why Experienced Adoption Focused Attorneys?

Why We Work In Adoption

Both John Herrin and Nathan Leach are dedicated to helping adoptive parents and expectant mothers skillfully navigate the Indiana adoption process.

Indiana adoption is very intricate and complex and ever-changing. Much of what we deal with is statutes: some are quite old and some much more recent. It is not always easy for non-lawyers or lawyers who do not work exclusively with adoption to stay on top of the ever-changing state standards and regulations. It can also be difficult to decipher legal terminology and requirements. Yet mistakes made early in the adoption process can have serious consequences even years later. At Herrin & Leach, adoption is what we do. Based on our experience, you can rest easy and be assured that your adoption is in capable and caring hands.

After decades of adoption focused law practice, we have seen that perhaps the biggest mistake people make is not working with a qualified and experienced adoption attorney. It is the one decision that makes perhaps the biggest impact. In fact, we have been involved in numerous contested and costly adoptions simply because the adoptive parents chose an inexperienced attorney at the beginning.

Adoption: The Greatest Hope

At Herrin & Leach we believe adoption is hope. We believe this hope is the foundation of not only families but also the community. We cherish our own families and children and are active in municipal groups, coaching our children's athletic teams and providing legal counsel for those in need. That's why we have created a firm that focuses solely on adoption; because we believe attorneys who are committed to the adoption process best serve those families seeking to adopt and the children who need safe, loving families. We are committed to helping adoptive parents and expectant mothers navigate the adoption process with the compassion and experience each family deserves.
