Do Your Adoption NOW!


A Minneapolis Estate Planning Lawyer Stresses the Need for LGBT Couples to Complete Their Adoptions NOW!!! 

I'm sure you're now aware of the current Federal Administration's continued hostility toward the LGBT community.

I try to be optimistic, but recent appointments have not helped on this point. So, hope for the best and prepare for the worst it is!

When marriage laws passed, many couples decided that marriage was the best estate plan.

What Trump Means for the LGBT Community, Part 1: Don’t Panic But Do Be Proactive

Now that the realization has sunk in that Trump will be the president, I am receiving a lot of inquiries from upset (and panicked) clients asking what they can do to protect themselves.

As a result of the volume of these calls, I am drafting a series of blog posts and will put together a LGBT Survival Guide in the Era of Trump to be posted on my website as well.
