Meet Attorney Melissa Torto
In the past two generations, advances in medical technology and treatment have allowed many more couples who previously would have been unable to bear a child on their own to become parents. At the same time, marginalized groups, including same-sex couples or other members of the LGBTQ+ community, have been granted greater legal freedom to raise children free of the threat of custody battles or other unjust impediments to their ability to parent.
Assisted reproduction attorney Melissa Torto, founder of the Law Office of Melissa L. Torto, LLC, understands the legal complexity of reproductive arrangements that fall outside of traditional channels. She has a background in complex contractual aspects of family law, including serving on the Executive Board of the Suffolk University Transnational Law Review during law school and publishing an article detailing aspects of international child custody rights under the Hague Convention in the journal.
