When you think of a law firm, “love” might not be the first word that springs to mind. But that’s exactly what Elizabeth Vaughan says her practice is all about. “My clients need to be assured that I am doing the legal work with a high degree of excellence so that they can do the important work: Loving their families,” Elizabeth says. Elizabeth Vaughan is an attorney practicing exclusively adoption, assisted reproduction, and child welfare law in Virginia and the District of Columbia. Focusing exclusively on family formation allows Elizabeth to give clients real depth of expertise in this complicated field of law. Elizabeth believes that in addition to an educated mind, a caring heart and a listening ear are essentials for a family-building lawyer. “Families going through one of the most important events of their lives need a lawyer who is knowledgeable, ethical, well-connected to the services they need, and available when they need to talk,” Elizabeth notes.
Elizabeth’s firm, The Vaughan Firm, is unique in that it offers not merely traditional legal services, but a full range of family-related services. The firm offers educational seminars, a lending library, assistance with writing adoptive-family profiles, referrals to a wide range of other professionals and support groups, etc. The Vaughan Firm also takes pride in being an LGBT-friendly firm, with expertise in family formation for gay and lesbian couples and singles.
