HARTFORD, CT, September 01, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Freed Marcroft has always guided their clients through the legal aspects of family law and divorce, all while caring about personal wellness. Meghan Freed and Kristen Marcroft believe that everyone has one life, and support those who make the brave decision to live it the way they want.
Freed Marcroft is a very progressive firm that supports same-sex parent adoptions. Recently, they offered co-parent adoptions 100% pro bono after the overturning of Roe V. Wade, to help the community and those who feel their same-sex marriage is being threatened. Freed Marcroft posted to their Facebook on June 27th about the decision, and by July 1st, they had reached maximum capacity. Through that post, they have assisted with 46 pro bono adoptions, which would typically provide them around $200,000 in revenue.
Many of Freed Marcroft's cases working with same-sex families are adoption related. The firm helps these parents throughout the process, from meetings with paralegals to final hearings; their goal is a successful adoption process. Meghan Freed and Kristen Marcroft are actively pushing for the Unified Parentage Act, which would make it easier for same-sex parents to adopt. Although this would eliminate a whole practice area from their firm, they believe it is the human and right thing to do.
They are so thankful to receive such great feedback from the community for an initiative like this. Though they've done pro bono work before, this was a new challenge for their firm. Their goal is always to make a difference, so all of their pro bono work has been shaped around that mission.
