Full Disclosure: As of this article going to print, the jury, officially, the members of the Massachusetts House and Senate are still out.

Just a little change…

One of the ways I give back to the Probate and Family Courts is by volunteering as “Lawyer of the Day” in the courts where I frequently practice. There are many reasons why I do this. As always, it is because I appreciate how hard the staff works assisting attorneys and litigants in a resources… Continue reading »

What Will THEY Think of Next?

Three Person Embryo MITOCHONDRIAL REPLACEMENT THERAPY (MRT) I recently wrote an article entitled DNA What’s it to you? which can be found on the K&G website www.kongreen.com. My current blog focuses on another aspect of DNA: the manipulation of embryos to avoid inherited mitochondrial DNA. MRT is a controversial therapy which will allow women who… Continue reading »

Have you read the Sunday’s August 7, 2016, Globe Magazine????,

Shame on David A. Gross for his callousness and glaring lack of knowledge!!! Anyone who has been touched by adoption (who hasn’t??? now that the dark days of secrecy are gone) knows that NO ONE GIVES UP A CHILD FOR ADOPTION. THERE IS NO SUCH THING. When a parent makes an adoption plan for his/her… Continue reading »

Equal Access to Original Birth Certificates

Did you know that not all persons over the age of 18 who were adopted in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts may access their original birth certificates without court intervention, or going on a “search?” Why? Currently, M.G.L.ch 46 s. 2B prevents those adoptees that were born between July 17, 1974 and December 31, 2007 from… Continue reading »

What’s A Grandparent To Do?

If it seems as though Grandparent Issues have been on my mind as of late, it is true. Becoming a grandparent myself was like looking into a kaleidoscope: with just an ever-so-slight twist, the landscape is different and perhaps more complicated. One would think that on becoming a grandparent, all of the fun and indulging… Continue reading »

To Turkey Baste or Not

Assisted reproduction can take on many forms. Many who decide to build their family through assisted reproduction use the services of a center. The center may be a fertility center, affiliated with sperm and egg banks, and medical facilities, while others are merely in the business of “matching” a person with an egg and or… Continue reading »

Grandparents Take Note

Grandparents, take note. I expect that you will readily nod your head when reading: parents have a Constitutional right “to make decisions concerning the care, custody, and control of their child[ren]” Blix v. Blixt, 437 Mass. 649, 651, 655 (2002), and yet not fully grasp the legal and practical implications of the Blixt holding. If… Continue reading »

November is National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Month. In the past, I have written about the probate courts opening their doors, judges clearing their dockets and making adoption a priority in the month of November. This process quickens the pace to allow children who have been waiting for permanency their day in court. However, I am troubled by… Continue reading »
