Your Trusted TN Adoption Lawyer

Adoption Law in Chattanooga

Welcoming a new child into your family is one of the most important events in any person’s life. While the adoption process is an exciting time for all, it is also filled with a lot of questions and concerns. At Samples, Jennings, Clem & Fields we handle more Hamilton County adoptions annually than every other attorney in the county combined. No one knows the adoption process inside and out like our law firm.

Our practice is not limited to Hamilton County, however, and we handle adoption matters throughout North Georgia and Middle and East Tennessee.

We handle all types of adoptions, including:

  • Birth parent representation
  • Independent adoptions
  • Agency adoptions
  • Stepparent, grandparent and other relative adoptions
  • DCS (Tennessee) adoptions
  • DFCS (Georgia) adoptions
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Adult adoptions
  • International re-adoptions

Michael Jennings is the only attorney in the United States who is a Fellow in the prestigious Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys and is also dually licensed in Tennessee and in Georgia.  Since completing his first adoption in 1987, Mike has handled several thousand adoptions in both North Georgia and in East and Middle Tennessee. Will joined our firm in 2016 and now works extensively in the adoption area, as well.  We have a long history of helping families throughout Chattanooga and the surrounding areas achieve their dream of adopting, and our firm looks forward to helping guide you through this process.

Take the first major step in the adoption process by calling Michael Jennings or William H. Vetterick to set up a consultation to learn how they can provide you with high-quality, compassionate adoption services.
