Oleaga Law, LLC is a boutique law firm dedicated to family formation.


Each family has its own story.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to family formation law.

My mission is to guide and protect you as you grow your family through assisted reproduction or adoption.

I am experienced in all aspects of family formation law, including:


Egg Donation

Sperm Donation

Embryo Donation

Embryo Disposition

Prenuptial Agreements


Stepparent Adoption

Second Parent Adoption

Confirmatory Adoption

I exclusively focus on assisted reproduction, family formation, and reproductive rights.

Janene Oleaga IVF Attorney


The ever-evolving legal landscape of assisted reproduction law.

I represent intended parents from the very start of their family planning journey through the birth of their child and beyond.

But my clients aren't only intended parents.

I also represent the surrogates, egg donors, sperm donors, and embryo donors helping families fulfill their dreams of parenthood.

I attended Loyola University in Maryland before graduating from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University with a concentration in International Law.  This expertise has uniquely positioned me to represent clients involved in international surrogacy arrangements.  I am licensed to practice law in Maine, New Hampshire, and New York.

More than just an assisted reproduction attorney.

Pro-family advocacy will always be my passion.  I testified at the Maine legislature in support of LD 1539: An Act to Provide Access to Fertility Care and LD 1906: An Act to Enable Confirmatory Adoption.  Thanks to the individuals and organizations who supported these bills, insurance coverage for Mainers seeking fertility treatments and confirmatory adoption for parents through assisted reproduction are now available in Maine.  I also testify every year with RESOLVE in support of pro-family legislation at the federal level.


I have been a legal resource to:

Out Magazine, SHAPE Magazine, Above the Law, Good Housekeeping, Kindbody, Legal Zoom, Flo Health, Equality Maine, Connecting Rainbows, and more.

I was awarded 40 Under 40 by Maine Business Journal in their inaugural class of 2022.  

I received a SCORE award for my work in Maine, SCORE 2021 business awards,

and was featured in: On the Record: Janene Oleaga.  

I am a board member of the BIVF Foundation, a non-profit organization making fertility treatments and family building resources available to New Englanders with inadequate insurance coverage regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship status.

I am also a proud member of the following organizations:

American Bar Association Reproductive Technology Committee and Adoption Committee

American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Legal Professional Group

New England Fertility Society

National LGBTQ+ Bar Foundation

Men Having Babies

Equality New York

AllPaths Family Building


New York State Bar Association

Maine State Bar Association

New Hampshire Bar Association

Before founding Oleaga Law LLC and exclusively providing family formation services,  I practiced criminal defense in Memphis, Tennessee, volunteered with Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project (ILAP) in Portland, Maine, and served as the Secretary of the Board of Directors for MaineShare, a non-profit organization.

I began this practice for one reason:

to help grow and protect families.  


Whether you are growing your family through assisted reproductive technology or adoption; whether you are working with a surrogate or planning conception with the assistance of an egg donor, sperm donor, or embryo donor; or whether you are exploring options for embryo disposition, I am here to guide you.
