“The bottom line is if you just go in and take care of your clients, one by one, everything else falls into place.”

– Peter Wiernicki, Esq.

Peter J. Wiernicki’s Dedication to Building Families in Maryland, Virginia and DC


As an adoption attorney, my philosophy is simple: if you genuinely care about each client, everything else will fall into place. Whether you are an adoptive family, intended parent, prospective birth mother or gestational carrier, I can provide the compassion, patience and objective information you need to make the best possible decisions in your circumstances.

As a principal in the law firm of Joseph, Wiernicki & Schimming, my practice emphasizes assisted reproductive technology (ART) and adoption in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. I have helped create hundreds of families, from Rockville, Bethesda, Annapolis and Baltimore to Frederick, Fairfax, Alexandria and surrounding areas.

For many of these families, I’m not only an experienced family-building attorney; I’m also a steadfast friend — someone they can turn to for all of their legal needs, from the beginning of their adoption or surrogacy journey through the creation of their final estate plan.

To learn how I can help you reach your adoption or surrogacy goals, please contact me today to schedule a free consultation.
