Robin Fleischner is simply the best attorney to have in your corner for the adoption process. From the first meeting she inspires confidence not only in your belief in her but in your belief that you will be successful in adopting a child. Robin doesn’t candy coat anything, she is straightforward and honest that the process will be stressful, that you must dedicate time and resources to your pursuit but in the end every ounce of sweat you pour into it is worth it when you are selected by a birth mother and adopt your child.
Robin gives you a great education on the adoption process. The easy parts, the difficulties, the highs and the lows. Robin explains the legal aspect, of course, but also your interaction with the agency that will be doing your home visits and the clearance process. You are also educated on the fact, and this is critical, that you are essentially marketing yourself to potential birth mothers.
Most people don’t possess the skill necessary for creating a solid profile, a good ad campaign or an eye catching website. For this there are a few people she recommends for profile creation, website building and advertising. I cannot stress this enough, work with these people. They are great at what they do and since they all have adopted children they know firsthand what you are going through.
Ours was a particularly stressful adoption requiring we spend an extended period away from home while we waited for ICPC approval. Throughout this time Robin kept us updated daily, was lobbying with bureaucrats to get the approval completed and was always empathetic and encouraging. My wife and I knew as long as we had Robin fighting for us we were going to be alright.
After finally getting home Robing kept us updated on the court hearings leading up to finalization. At no time are you left wondering where things stand. If you are unsure or have any questions at any time, Robin is just an email away. She responds quickly, every time.
We just completed the finalization for our son and could not be happier. In short, we highly recommend Robin to anyone who wants to adopt. From the initial consult to the finalization you have an attorney who is behind you all the way. You can’t ask for more.
