Who We Are
The premier California fertility law firm, Gaston & Gaston, helps couples and individuals safely and legally create new families by guiding them through the surrogacy process. We work with clients in the U.S. and abroad, using our in-depth knowledge of fertility law and long-standing relationships with fertility clinics, surrogacy providers, and international agencies to make certain that the rights of all involved parties are fully protected.
What We Do
Gaston & Gaston helps create successful surrogacy outcomes by providing specialized legal advice to ensure that all parties know what to do, how to do it legally, and when.
We walk you through every step of the fertility process, explaining your options, legal rights, and responsibilities to the surrogate, fertility clinics, and your baby.
We work with surrogates to help them understand their legal rights and obligations throughout the process. We can also recommend an independent attorney to serve as the surrogate’s legal representative.
In-Vitro Clinics and Physicians
We help fertility clinics comply with all fertility laws by assuring they have the proper contracts and legal documents in place for their surrogates, donors, and intended parent clients.
We educate surrogacy agencies, both in the U.S. and abroad, about their rights, duties, and obligations under current California and U.S. fertility laws.
