Very nice & he has been recommended by a few lawyers, & exp surrogates so I'm confident contracts will work the same way. I think $1500 to draft a contract as a 1st time surro & to represent me is very reasonable. He also does escrow, very reasonable price also. I think my PIP's will be very happy with that price.

    FTA...They would need an atty that is familiar with the laws in the state that they deliver in. It is different for surros. An atty would have to be licensed in the state to obtain a PBO for the IPs and handle any other court issues that arise.

    I have also heard of a Michael Grant in Rhode Island.

    Good luck

    I personally wouldn't recommend Michael Grant.

One defends and participates in crazy, illegal antics. Which is which I'll let you figure out but I don't think either one is a good attorney. I like Joyce Kauffman if you need a New England lawyer.

    IP's used Bob, I used Michael Grant as my attorney the first time and quite frankly I think it was a waste of IP's money as I basically re-wrote the sections that needed to be fixed myself, and then 2nd time I used Julie Ginsburg. No problems at all!
    Good luck!

    He was my lawyer for the contracts...the drafts I got had a LOT of errors but I don't know if that was the IP's lawyer's doing or his...the travel details and the comp figures were WAY off, but once we got everything finalized (there were still some minor oversights) it was almost exactly how I wanted it to be. He seemed very professional and I like that he was one of the first lawyers to get into surrogacy. He seemed to be fair and reputable.

    He was my lawyer for contracts this journey and he was great. He always got back to me veryquickly and he got everything changed that I wanted changed. He was very professional. I would highly recommend him.

    I have used Mike Grant and find him to be good, yes there needed to be tweeking of my contract, but I feel it is because a contract is a very personal thing and it is easy to miss things if they are not personal to you.

    He is also a dad through surrogacy.

    He has been great about helping us clear up errors with the twins death certificate since there was no PBO @ 16 weeks.

    Michael Grant is representing me and has been great so far. He gets things done quickly and efficiently. We should be signing the contract within the week.
