Reproduction | Contested Assisted Reproduction Matters

The Adoption and Surrogacy Law Center

Contested Assisted Reproductive Technology Matters –  “Lost and Destroyed Embryos, Disputes over Frozen Sperm, Medical Malpractice Resulting in Miscarriage by the Gestational Carrier, and Contract Disputes over the Disclosure of Donor Identities.”

At the Adoption & Surrogacy Law Center, Colleen M. Quinn, Esq. and her staff have handled many interesting contested surrogacy and assisted reproductive technology matters. These cases have included, but are not limited to, representing:

  • Intended parents against the fertility clinic that, upon the eve of having embryos implanted that previously had been used for the creation of two of their children, were discovered to have been lost.
  • Parents of a deceased young man against a medical facility to gain possession of  the young man’s frozen sperm.
  • Intended parents and their gestational carrier in a potential malpractice case where misdiagnosis and medical procedures resulted in the loss of the pregnancies.
  • Sperm donor recipient against the sperm bank regarding breach of the terms of disclosure of the identity of the donor.
  • Egg donors subject to personal injury and/or medical malpractice.

There are many situations where assisted reproduction or surrogacy matters may turn into contested matters, in such instances, an experienced trial attorney not only will have a command of trial practices but also should know what creative arguments or legal theories might be advanced in these “new frontier” areas of technology and the law. An experienced trial attorney also should know what mechanisms may be in place for settlement or mediation and how to properly evaluate damages. Colleen M. Quinn not only is an experienced trial attorney, having tried hundreds of cases, but also is on the forefront of handling contested assisted reproduction matters – even having presented nationally to her fellow ARTs colleagues in such matters.
