Mr. Farole has been consulted as an expert concerning the practice and procedure for Surrogacy Law in Pennsylvania and issued an expert opinion regarding such practice.
Assisted Reproductive Technology is at the forefront of cutting edge medical technology and legal theory. Advancements in medical technology have made it possible for families with medical problems and/or alternative families, who are unable to conceive and give birth to children of their own, to now do exactly that with the help of a Surrogate. Mr. Farole is dedicated to his practice and enjoys the collaborative effort of Intended Parents, Surrogates, Surrogacy Agencies, Physicians and Attorneys to accomplish a common goal. Surrogacy is a very fulfilling area of practice for Mr. Farole and he is honored to be a leading practitioner in this field. Mr. Farole is always available for a free consultation to discuss the details of your journey.
