“Our experience with Judith Hoechst has been outstanding! Going through the egg donor and surrogacy process was overwhelming at times, but Judith gave us advise, assistance, and valuable information beyond the legal aspects of the process. As a lawyer, she is the absolute best in her field. She is diligent, compassionate and always available for any questions. We felt very lucky working with her.”
