Attorney Profile

As an adoptive mom and woman who has struggled with infertility I know that the options for expanding your family can be overwhelming. Johnson Dorsey Law Firm considers itself a “Family Planning” law firm, helping to build families with warmth, compassion and a personal touch. My personal experiences with adoption and infertility have made me a better advocate and legal professional ready to help you navigate through the process. I am committed to listening to your concerns and working with you to find the best way for you to build your family. It is my goal at Johnson Dorsey Law Firm to help you with all your “family planning” needs. Additionally, we can help you safeguard your family with proper planning for the future with our Estate Planning Law practice.

I grew up in a family that grew and shrunk on a regular basis.  My parents became foster parents when I was 11 and have been foster parents for over 20 years. Foster care has impacted my life in profound ways thus my focus towards family law came naturally. Growing up surrounded by foster siblings and witnessing them flourish, while at the same time seeing the hurt they endured I developed a deep level of compassion and understanding for the importance of family.  This personal experience has intensified my passion to see children protected from rejection, abandonment and hopelessness.I believe the opportunity my parents provided me through foster care gives me a unique and personal perspective towards family.

I am committed to providing affordable legal services and therefore often charge less than our competitors. What we do at Johnson Dorsey Law Firm isn’t just a job. It is who we are. Johnson Dorsey Law Firm has narrowed its practice to Adoption Law, Assisted Reproduction Law (surrogacy, egg donation and embryo adoption) and Estate Planning Law.
