Nadia A. Margherio – Attorney

“As a mother of three healthy children, I consider myself extremely blessed (lucky) that I was able to create a family without any assistance from ART experts.  However, I have family members who were not so lucky.  Encouraging them through the process was easy –  realizing and feeling their personal struggles and anguish was heart breaking – celebrating the birth of their child after several years of working with ART experts was a joyous memory that will last a lifetime!    As a former social worker that focused on working with families and children, and now as a  family law attorney  that assists clients on a daily basis with crafting custody orders and dissolving their marital estate; helping individuals and couples build and legally protect their own families  was a perfect and natural transition in the family law arena.    Whether you are the sperm donor, egg donor, surrogate, intended or adoptive parent, I am happy to provide the necessary help  to ensure you and your family are protected.”
