Does anybody know of a lawyer in the Durham Region? We are using a surrogate and on top of all the IVF, PGS, drugs and now lawyer fees, I'm trying to find someone who isn't up near the $5000 mark. Any recommendations would be fabulous 🙂

I used Michelle Flowerday for my egg donor agreement. She charged me a flat fee. We did everything by phone and email.

Michelle Flowerday, David Goldstein, Shirley Levitan and Sara Cohen are all worth a call.
