Oleaga Law, LLC is a boutique law firm dedicated to assisting clients with all aspects of family formation.


Each family is unique.

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

My mission is to guide and protect your family as you navigate the world of assisted reproduction and adoption.

Let me help.

Licensed in New York, New Hampshire, and Maine, I am experienced in all aspects of family formation law, including:



Egg Donation

Sperm Donation

Embryo Donation

Embryo Disposition

Prenuptial Agreements

I began this practice to provide legal services to Adoptive Parents and Intended Parents wishing to grow their family through assisted reproductive technology or adoption, and Expectant Mothers, Gestational Carriers, Surrogates, Egg Donors and Sperm Donors helping families fulfill these dreams.

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 guide my clients involved in international surrogacy arrangements.  I am licensed to practice law in Maine, New Hampshire, and New York.

More than just an attorney.

Pro-family advocacy will always be a passion of mine.  I testified at the Maine legislature in support of LD 1539: An Act to Provide Access to Fertility Care.  I also testified with RESOLVE in support of pro-family legislation at the federal level.


I have been a legal resource to:

SHAPE magazine:   SHAPE: How Does Surrogacy Work, Exactly?

LegalZoom:   LegalZoom: 10 Estate Planning Must Dos

Flo Health:   How to Have a Baby When You're LGBTQ+

Kindbody:   LGBTQ+ Family Building Options

Connecting Rainbows:   Trans Parents and Assisted Reproduction

Equality Maine:   LGBTQ+ Family Building Options

and more.

I received a SCORE award for my work in Maine, SCORE 2021 business awards, and was featured in the Maine Business Journal: On the Record: Janene Oleaga.

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, RESOLVE New England and Men Having Babies.

I volunteered with Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project (ILAP), and served as the Secretary of the Board of Directors for MaineShare, a non-profit organization.
