I founded Oleaga Law, LLC to provide legal services to Intended Parents wishing to grow their family through assisted reproductive technology or adoption, and Birth Mothers, Gestational Carriers, Traditional Surrogates, Egg Donors and Sperm Donors

hoping to help families fulfill their dreams.

I grew up on Long Island and attended Loyola University in Maryland.  I graduated from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University with a concentration in International Law.  I practiced family law in New York, criminal defense in Memphis, Tennessee,

before I moved to Maine in 2013 where I live with my husband and two daughters.  I am admitted to the bar in Maine and New York.  

I have volunteered with Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project (ILAP), and served as the Secretary of the Board of Directors for

MaineShare, a non-profit organization.

I am  a member of the American Bar Association Reproductive Technology Committee and Adoption Committee,

the Maine State Bar Association, the Cumberland County Bar Association, and RESOLVE New England.
