Details

An attorney at Family Formation Law Offices, Megan Cohen represents clients in Lafayette, and throughout California, in cases involving adoption and assisted reproduction. 

Ms. Cohen attended law school at the John F. Kennedy University College of Law, graduating magna cum laude with her Juris Doctor in 2009. During her time in law school, she served as an advocate for victims of domestic violence and also earned five separate Witkin Awards for academic excellence. The year following her graduation, she was admitted to practice law in California. Previously, she had worked as a high school English teacher and was also an owner of her family's manufacturin business.

Ms. Cohen became passionate about adoption and surrogacy after placing her own son up for adoption in 1988, still maintaining a relationship with him and his adoptive family. Her own experiences with adoption give her a unique insight into the process and issues that adoptive families and birth parents may face as well as how important it is to choose the right adoptive family and maintain a relationship if so desired.

In order to give back to her community, Ms. Cohen is a member of multiple organizations. One such organization is the On Your Feet Foundation, of which she is a board member. This organization helps birth parents get back on their feet through support and coaching. Ms. Cohen is also a member of SEEDS, which stands for Society for Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy. This is an organization devoted to encouraging ethical behaviors in surrogacy cases.
