GLG lawyers regularly monitor legislation and advise clients on legal issues that impact the LGBTQ+ community with the goal of ensuring our clients have the best legal representation and that their rights are protected. Examples of our services for the LGBTQ+ community include:

Additionally, GLG understands that for transgender individuals, finding affirming and welcoming attorneys that are prepared to navigate the complex legal challenges they may face can be especially difficult. All of our attorneys and staff members are accustomed to working with clients to ensure their names and pronouns, or those of family members, are respected within official documentation and within the office.

We also have experience working on a variety of issues specific to transgender individuals, such as:

  • Preparing name change/gender change documents
  • Preparing Power of Attorney and Advanced Medical Directive documents for transgender clients
  • Investigating emancipation/guardianship for transgender minors
  • Transgender reproductive matters
