Roetter, who provides assisted reproduction and adoption services to her clients, is one of just a handful of attorneys in Wisconsin who has expertise in this area. Her practice is state-wide, and her clients come from Wisconsin, other states, and many foreign countries.

She drafts and negotiates gestational surrogacy agreements as well as sperm, egg, and embryo donation agreements and has completed adoptions and established parentage in many Wisconsin counties. Roetter works closely with other attorneys, adoption and surrogacy matching agencies, and psychologists to ensure that all parties are well informed as they begin their adoption or surrogacy journey.

In addition to her affiliation with AAAA, she is a member of the American Bar Association’s Family Law Section – Assisted Reproductive Technology Committee, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Legal Practice Group, and the State Bar of Wisconsin Children and the Law Section.

One of the best features about our website articles and blog entries is that they are timely—you get up-to-date information on the law as it exists at the time. The downside is that the law changes, but our older entries don't. That means we can't guarantee you are getting the most current law when reading through past entries. Please don't take these articles and blog entries and rely on them as legal advice. Give us a call instead, for specific and pointed advice for your particular situation.
