Law Office of Jennifer P. Maas

The Law Office of Jennifer P. Maas, PLLC is a family formation law firm dedicated to helping LGBTQ+ New Yorkers looking to form, expand and secure their families.

The law firm works with parents to secure their parental rights through Judgments of Parentage or Orders of Second or Step-Parent Adoption, having obtained Parentage Orders for many of the firm’s lesbian and non-binary clients throughout New York City, Long Island and beyond. The firm works with LGBTQ+ clients to draft Embryo, Egg or Sperm Donation Agreements when working with known donors, and reviews such Agreements on behalf of donors themselves. Additionally, the law firm is operated by an attorney who formed her family using surrogacy, and proudly represents intended parents seeking to build their families through the use of gestational surrogacy.

With locations in Manhattan and Long Island to conveniently meet clients when needed, the Law Firm takes a modern and compassionate approach to its practice by using technology and flexible hours to accommodate clients’ busy schedules.

Providing Peace of Mind to New Yorkers and Their Families 

Do you ever worry about what would happen to your children if something happened to you?

If you don’t have the right legal documents in place . . .

  • A judge will decide who takes care of your children.
  • A court will supervise their inheritance, and the financial details of their lives will become part of the public record.
  • Your kids will receive their entire inheritance at 18.
  • Your family could be stuck with a large tax bill.

That’s the bad news.  And, let’s face it, it’s pretty bad.  That’s why we’re passionate about making sure as many families as possible avoid this fate.

In fact, our Founder, Attorney Shannon McNulty, is so passionate, she wrote a book on the topic.  You can get a free copy here.

The good news is that all the things above are avoidable – and at The Village Law Firm, we make it easy to protect your family

We’ll help you every step of the way.  But you need to take the first step.  If you’re ready to get started, simply click on this link to schedule a call.
