Jen and her team were instrumental in helping us navigate the complex legal landscape for LGBT family law. We and our two children will be forever grateful for their exceptional work in helping us to both adopt our children.

My husband and I had a really wonderful experience with Jennifer Tharrington and her law firm! We live in Sweden and she worked with us for the legal portion of our surrogacy in North Carolina. We could tell she was highly experienced with surrogacy law and really worked with us well, even when we had issues arrise with things that happened here in Sweden. Working between two different countries law systems is not an easy task, so cheers to her! Her and the other staff at the law firm were always positive, which really helped to calm any worries we had along the way. We highly recommend Jennifer and the law firm!

Jennifer Tharrington and Village Law Group were wonderful to work with. Their knowledge and understanding of surrogacy made the entire process simple and easy to understand. We are very thankful for their legal help.
Daniel and Ana Carla S.
We had a wonderful experience working with Village Law Group on an adoption matter. Jen Tharrington and her team were responsive, empathetic, understanding of our unique circumstances, and willing to go to bat for us when we encountered unexpected obstacles. We truly felt like we had an advocate, ally, and expert on our side, and could not have asked for better advice and representation.

I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Tharrington as my attorney for my first surrogacy journey. I’m glad I had her.  It was a very trying anxiety-ridden journey that resulted in me not going further with the surrogate, (because of honesty issues with her, or lack of). Jennifer was not only knowledgable about guiding me through the legal issues, but she showed me a very compassionate, human side that was very much appreciated through this painful time in my life.  When you’re dealing with an issue this emotional, it is very helpful to have a level, practical head guiding you- all the time maintaining a professional demeanor. It is without hesitation that I recommend this attorney.  If my next surrogate is in North Carolina this is who I will ask to represent me.
