We found ourselves ready for an adoption and in need of the guidance and knowledge of a seasoned, competent attorney who understood not only the adoption process, but the DCS adoption process. Grant with Kirsh & Kirsh was one of many calls to determine our best next step as we worked to build our family. His solid reputation was promising, but it was his approachable nature and eagerness to help that gave us confidence in him. From that first phone call, Grant and his team jumped in, ready to help us navigate the more intricate aspects of the process, always encouraging and informative. Yesterday was our special day, and every single step leading up to our happy moment was made manageable by the consistent and accurate advice from Grant. He did not just take us through the motions but instead took time to answer our questions and intercede when other parties lost their momentum in preparing their parts of our adoption. We cannot say enough about how Kirsh & Kirsh enthusiastically supported our adoption efforts and saw the process through until the end. Being an expert in adoption law is important; being a compassionate, genuine individual who truly invests in his clients was the cherry on top. Thank you, Grant and staff, for providing us with the information, support, and guidance we needed to see our not-so-streamline adoption through to the end. Every hiccup, every setback, every unforeseen challenge was met with finesse and professionalism, and we thank you for not just showing up for our special day but for celebrating, through your hard work, the magic of uniting a forever family. We are forever grateful.

We hired K&K to be our adoption attorneys. They recommended we write our birthmom letter using the help of a writer. We paid the writer $800 for his help. We then sat on the waiting list for 9 months and I never heard from K&K. I called them and they informed us that no birth mothers had shown interest in us. We are a young and healthy college educated couple with a home and very supportive extended family. I asked him why he thought we hadn't been chosen and he provided no insight (During our initial meeting he had said he would be shocked if we hadn't been matched within 9 months). The only recommendation he provided was to take another look at our birthmom letter...the one we paid $800 for HIS writer to develop. We felt we were treated with a condescending and dismissive attitude. We had been through several infertility treatments (and tens of thousands of dollars) and were excited about adopting and we told them that. We didn't see any effort put forth on their part to help us. We have been very dissatisfied and feel K&K certainly didn't live up to the standard we had expected. We felt we needed to write this review to share our true experience with them since many reviews only share positive experiences. Infertility is heartbreaking and we would have appreciated compassion and support from the adoption attorneys we hired and paid.

I contacted Kirsh & Kirsh in 1999. I was having twins! I was young and a little lost in my life, I was a single mom and I knew I was not ready to take on the financial responsibility of a bigger family. I met with Joel and after our meeting I knew Kirsh & Kirsh were going to help me find an amazing family for my children. Now 15 years later I am planning my second visit with my twins and their family! Adoption is nothing like it use to be. Thanks to today's technology and the entire staff at Kirsh I have been able to watch my children grow. It has been an amazing experience and if you are thinking about adoption Kirsh & Kirsh are wonderful! They will make sure the family you choose for your child is the right family for you and your child. I love everyone at Kirsh & Kirsh!

Very professional and friendly from the first day we talked to them. Highly experienced in adoption law. We were matched after waiting only 5 months. They were with us every step of the way. They were also so kind to the birth parents, which meant a lot to us. Highly recommend!

We were connected to Kirsh & Kirsh through our adoption agency after a match was made. Being from another state, I felt comforted knowing that Kirsh and Kirsh were there to assist us, and answer any questions we had. Thank you to everyone we met in person and via email...you are all amazing! You helped make our family complete!

Our adoption was a complete journey that led us to Kirsh and Kirsh to handle all legal work. To have full confidence in the lawyers handing our adoption was the most important thing for us. When we knew Kirsh and Kirsh would be our lawyers, we were able to finally relax knowing that we were not in good hands, but the best hands. We were impressed with the dedication, professionalism, knowledge, organization, and friendliness of Steve Kirsh and his amazing staff. As we look back on our journey and the agencies we have worked with along the way, we would highly recommend Kirsh and Kirsh to anyone interested in adoption services. You can put complete trust in their team to handle your adoption.

My wife and I are looking to adopt. I found Kirsh and Kirsh online at IndianaAdoption.com and had several questions. We have spent months researching different agencies, facilitators, and attorneys. Steve Kirsh took my call, spent 45 minutes giving me candid answers to some very difficult questions. I appreciate his 30 years experience in the adoption field and felt I was speaking with a very honest person. He is by far the most knowledgable adoption professional I have talked to.

I wish we had found Kirsh when we started our adoption journey. When we started, we did not know anyone that had completed a successful domestic adoption in the last 5 years. We tried a less expensive agency, but it was not a good fit. Kirsh did a really good job of talking us through match situations and helping us assess risk. After a painful failure with a different agency, we felt Kirsh and Kirsh was our bright light in the dark forest of adoption. We knew this firm was knowledgeable, responsive, and committed to helping us with our goal of having a family. They were always looking out for our best interests. They are true professionals, and you do not always get that with the bargain priced agencies. We strongly recommend Kirsh!



Thanks to Kirsh, we have been blessed with a child. If we decide to expand our family again, we will only trust Kirsh and Kirsh with that task. They were so very kind to us through the whole process. Our initial talk was with Joel. We liked him from the start. This firm is comprised of mostly family, and that definitely made a difference. They work together! If someone is out of the office, someone else is happy to help you. Steve has responded to email from us on the weekend. Emley, who worked our match that brought us our child, is truly one of heaven's angels.



When we were finally parents, I honestly think they were almost as happy for us as some of our close friends! I cannot say enough positive things about this firm.

We originally started the adoption process with another agency approximately 3.5 years ago and were unsuccessful. After this heartbreaking experience, we decided to retain Kirsh & Kirsh for several reasons. First, was due to their excellent reputation. Second, was because our friends had been successfully placed with children through Kirsh and Kirsh. Finally, after meeting with Steve and Joel, we knew we too would be able to successfully form a family with their assistance.



We retained Kirsh and Kirsh in September of 2012 and were successfully matched with our healthy baby girl in February of 2013.



Everyone in the Kirsh and Kirsh family is so amazing. They are true professionals and experts in this field.



The only regret we have is that we did not retain Kirsh & Kirsh sooner!

We had heard of Kirsh & Kirsh’s excellent reputation for years, and had met several couples that had used their services. When we made the decision to expand our family through adoption, they were our first choice. From our first initial meeting to follow up visits to show off our adopted son, the entire staff was amazing. They truly are a family run business, and you experience that from the very beginning. What can be a very emotional journey with many turns; Steve, Joel and staff were all by our sides the entire time and provided the words and encouragement we desperately needed.



We have begun the adoption process again. Not only are we anxious to add to our family, we sincerely look forward to working with the entire staff once again. We know we are in good hands and they are always looking out for our best interests. The level of experience and professionalism is bar none. Contacting Steve and Joel Kirsh was one of the best decisions we ever made, and will most likely be yours as well.

I first came in contact with Kirsh & Kirsh over 20 years ago. I was a scared pregnant teen that decided to give my baby the best life possible - adoption. The Kirsh & Kirsh team explained all of my options and walked me through the process of what they could and would provide. They did EXACTLY what they said they would do...and MORE! I have nothing but POSITIVE things to say about this group of wonderful individuals. THANKS for all you did and continue to do!

After having a bad situation with a less professional agency, I would recommend Kirsh to everyone! They are professional and caring. They keep you informed about your adoption and what is happening in their group. They call you and response to email. Every time you speak with them, they make you feel hopeful. They treat everyone will fairness. They understand birth mom feelings and adoptive family feelings. They walk you through the process before you sign up. They make sure you understand what this is all about. They help write your birth mother letter with wonderful tips. You can tell they know what they are doing. They have the experience to get you a baby!



After having been successfully matched and taken home our baby through Kirsh & Kirsh, I would like to write another review of their practice. The people that work for Kirsh & Kirsh are truly special. They understand that they are changing lives for the adoptive family, the brave birth mother, and most importantly the child. They have a deep love for adoption. When we met everyone in their office with our new baby, it was like one big happy family. Of course most of their staff are related. They were so excited for us. It is a good feeling having that family surrounding you in the mountain top experience you are having with your new baby. I cannot say enough that Kirsh & Kirsh would be an outstanding choice for you to grow your family!

When pursuing adoption, you need a team

When pursuing adoption, you need a team that will guide, advise and deliver. Kirsh & Kirsh is your team. As a couple from New York adopting our infant son from Indiana, we hadn't a clue of the Indiana adoption laws. Referred to Steve Kirsh through our New York adoption lawyer, we became immediately confident we were in capable hands. Prior to our birthmother's due date, the office of Kirsh & Kirsh thoroughly advised us as to what preparations needed to made, both legally and personally. Once our son was born, the speed with which Steve Kirsh filed and finalized the necessary legal documents was remarkable. Our New York attorney commented that the process simply does not move faster than what Kirsh was able to achieve.

Our son was born on a Sunday night, at 11:30pm. Steve Kirsh was at our birthmotherâ??s bedside by 9:00am Monday morning with the appropriate paperwork to begin the process. By 3:00pm, I was holding our son in the hospital room while Steve called our birthmother with the Indiana judge on the phone to finalize the adoption. In under 24 hours from the time of our sonâ??s birth, we were able to call our family and friends to announce his arrival, knowing that he was legally our child. Further, we were able to return to New York by the end of the week once Kirsh made the necessary arrangements for state clearance through the ICPC.

Because of Kirsh & Kirsh, the final stage to realizing our dream of starting a family could not have been easier. They will guide you, direct you and manage the process so you can focus on the most important part - becoming a parent.

I cannot say enough good things about the people at Kirsh & Kirsh. Their professionalism blended with their huge hearts and how much they care about each and every individual was amazing. My wife and I were always well informed, received timely responses and they were able to accommodate all of our requests. It is one thing to have adoptions as part of what you do, the people at Kirsh & Kirsh do it with hope, a love for people and passion. Throughout the entire process I felt as if they were almost as excited as my wife and I. They understand how emotional, stressful and amazing the process can be on families. Not only did they never give me any reason for doubt or discomfort, I was actually pleasantly surprised as each step moved forward. They went out of their way and put in additional time to accommodate a difficult timeline as well as my schedule. Walking in to a process like this is scary and emotional. Those feelings were put to rest at every point in the process and I truly felt like I had an office of new friends. I would be shocked if any office can match Kirsh & Kirsh. I have never been more impressed.



P.S. Another huge thanks to you guys at Kirsh & Kirsh! You're the best!

Look no further than Kirsh & Kirsh!

I had the pleasure of working with K&K on our adoption this month. It was a wonderful experience. K&K is a family-run firm and it shows. Its professionals are dedicated to client service and acted with the highest level of integrity at each step of the process. I have heard people say that doctors make the worst patients - well, I believe the same is true with lawyers as clients. And as a lawyer myself, I recognize I was probably a very ""difficult"" client for K&K, constantly anticipating issues, identifying potential problems, and asking difficult quesions. I was amazed that at each step of the way, my questions were addressed almost immediately; indeed, in each case, K&K had already preempted and addressed each of my concerns. When I spoke with other firms and agencies prior to finding K&K, I never had the same level of comfort. I am confident that K&K 's experience, dedication, and attention to detail are unsurpassed in the adoption field and I would not hesitate to use them again and to send friends and family. Thank you K&K!

We had the pleasure of working...

We had the pleasure of working with Kirsh and Kirsh to adopt our son Aidan. As one can imagine, the process of adopting a child can be an emotional and stressful experience. However, I cannot think of anyone I would rather have guiding me through the process than Steve and Joel Kirsh and the staff at their firm. When we had questions there was always someone available to take our call and provide answers. And, if something had to be researched or looked into they always got back to us in a timely manner. They were not only accessible, but also approachable. (I really appreciated that as I got closer to our son’s expected arrival date they were very patient with my neurotic-first-time-mother questions and reassured me that everything would be okay!) While they were very encouraging throughout the process they were also very honest and explained possibilities to us so we could be prepared in case we hit any bumps along the road.



In addition to being there for us, the Kirshes were also a comfort to our birthmother whom we were matched with using the Kirsh Directed Approach. Our birthmother is a phenomenal young woman and we are so grateful that we were able to match with her. The fact that Kirsh and Kirsh did all the work to find her through the Directed approach took that stress off of our plate so that we could focus on preparing to become parents. And, although they always made it clear that the firm represented us, they answered any of our birthmother’s questions so that she had the information she needed to continue with her adoption plan. I know that she appreciated having a resource to call on and I was grateful that she didn’t feel alone during what was a very emotional and difficult time for her.



From helping us get our approval process started, to editing our birthmother letter, to finding the most wonderful birthmother and son, to celebrating with us on Adoption Day, I cannot think of a more qualified or more caring team of individuals to guide you through the adoption process. Because of our wonderful experience with Kirsh and Kirsh, I highly recommend them as THE firm to call when beginning the adoption process, whether you live in Indiana or not!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!

We just wanted to thank you so much for all that you have done for us. I know for a fact without you this adoption would have never taken place. I called you on a Tuesday morning, and by lunchtime on Wednesday we had our little boy. I know from experience with adoptions, that these things always take a long time to process, and you stopped everything that you were doing and used all of your resources available to make this work for our family. We are so blessed and forever thankful to you. Not only did you do this so quickly, but you were always available every time I called. It was unbelievable to me how hard you worked for this. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you and your whole staff have done for us. It was nothing less than a miracle for our entire family!

Integrity, compassion, genuine care - Kirsh and Kirsh

Integrity, compassion, and genuine care are the first words/phrases that come to mind when we think of Kirsh and Kirsh. My husband and I adopted our son through Kirsh and Kirsh. They came highly recommended to us through close friends. Our entire adoption process took eight months from beginning to end. We are not from Indiana and worried that this would make the process longer and more difficult. It couldn't have gone any smoother. Kirsh and Kirsh is a family owned and operated firm, and it shows. The care, concern, time and attention we received throughout the process was amazing. We worked with Josh and Steve and cannot speak highly enough about their professionalism and genuine interest and concern for us... and our birthmother. We traveled to Indiana one time...and that was to meet our son and take him home. We mainly worked with Josh and he made himself available for all of our questions and concerns throughout the process. HE GENUINELY CARES about the process and everyone involved. This is not just a business to this family... and it shows. You get what you pay for and that is what I would say to those who might hesitate at the cost. We are gearing up to work with them again and would without hesitation, recommend the services of Kirsh and Kirsh. I thank them regularly for making our dreams come true.
