Stephanie Griffith Beard, APLC

Additional Disclaimer regarding adoptions:  

This attorney makes no promises nor guarantees about the success of completing an adoption on your behalf. Please know that adoptions can take a very long time to complete, if at all, and can be extremely emotional for all parties involved.



Serving Southeast and South-Central Louisiana since 1998.


As an attorney, Stephanie is ethically obligated to advise you to hire an attorney to handle any legal matter that you may encounter.  The bottom line with this office is to strive to serve your needs professionally and competently, and in your best interests.  If necessary, you will be referred to another legal professional or other resource who can better serve your specific needs.  All consultations are completely confidential, so you should feel free to speak openly and honestly, in order that you may be advised as well as possible.

     If you are choosing adoption for your child, you undoubtedly have many fears, and many questions that need to be answered:  about the adoption process itself, about paying your bills, and -- most importantly -- about choosing a family for your child.    

     You've come to the right place. 

     With a knowledgeable and caring attorney to assist you, hopefully many of your current fears will be put to rest. Legal services are free for birthparents -- paid for by adoptive parents -- and you will never be asked to repay them.    

     You will have access to a unique and personal adoption experience with this law firm, including being able to make choices to suit your individual wishes:  closed/anonymous adoption, open adoption, or semi-open.   You choose. You decide.
