I am thrilled to announce that I will appear in the November edition of New Orleans Magazine, listed among the top family attorneys in New Orleans. This list was compiled with suggestions from members of the legal community, and so I am particularly happy to know I am becoming a respected practitioner in my chosen field.
Still, as much as those accolades mean, I can’t grow my practice without my clients. If you have a family law need to discuss with me, please call at (504) 581-4334, or reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s nice to start off the new year with an adoption case. Bringing families together is a very rewarding part of my practice.
Adoptions are emotional for everyone involved, including me. It’s probably because I am deeply involved with all the people who come together to make this happen. I see how difficult it is for the birth mother to make the decision to adopt, how longing and hopeful the adoptive parents are to have a child, and how good counselors and lawyers working together with concerned judges can grow a successful adoption case.
If you’re pregnant and considering adoption, I can help you meet families looking for a child. Except for taking care of yourself to make certain your growing child is healthy, finding the right family for your child is the most important job you have right now. This is your child, and you are making decisions for his or her best interest.
Prospective parents put together profiles, which include pictures and words that help them tell you about themselves before you actually meet them. Through the profile, you get a view into their lives and hear about their hopes and dreams, which of course involve having your child as a part of their lives. You have control over who you want to meet, and it’s your choice who will adopt your child.
In addition to introducing you to hopeful adoptive parents, I will arrange for you to have counseling to prepare you for the adoption process. I work with some very caring professionals who have many years of experience working with mothers like you. They understand what you’re going through and can help you figure out what you and your child need.
Whether you choose adoption or not, it’s important that you take care of yourself and your baby. I have great respect for your decision and would be glad to work with you. Call Liz Meneray at Meneray Family Law, L.L.C. at (504) 330-5522, (504) 322-3222 or e-mail me at email@example.com

I met a wonderful couple today who have been taking care of their four year old grandchild her entire life. They want to adopt her and are going to receive financial help from the grandfather’s employer.
Indeed, a quick search on the internet shows that some of Louisiana’s largest employers, Chevron, Shell, BP, all provide benefits to their employees that allow them to recoup money spent in obtaining an adoption.
The amount of the benefits I found on line range from $3000 to $5000, which is enough money to pay all of the cost of an interfamily adoption (adopting a grandchild or a step-child), including attorney’s fees and court costs.
If you’re considering adopting a grandchild or a step-child, contact Liz for a consultation at (504) 322-3222 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
