Meg Nemeth Ledebuhr
Meg brings diverse agency, litigation, and personal infertility experience to Midwest Fertility Law Group. Prior to founding the firm, Meg was the Director of Legal Services at ConceiveAbilities, an international egg donation and surrogacy agency, where she coordinated the entire legal journey for all parties involved in a gestational surrogacy or egg donor arrangement. In this role, she worked with national industry leaders in assisted reproductive technology, as well as with doctors, intended parents, surrogates, egg donors, and other fertility lawyers.
Prior to this role, Meg worked at several well-respected family law firms, gaining valuable experience in the courtroom. At these firms, she was able to hone her litigation skills while representing clients in both fertility and adoption matters.
She provides a unique personal insight to adoption and infertility matters. Meg’s approach to family building does not simply involve the resolution of legal issues. Instead, she incorporates her understanding of the emotional complexities that arise when shaping any family.
Meg’s commitment and success as a family building lawyer resulted in recognition by her peers and by prestigious legal organizations. In 2013, she was recognized as one of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin Publishing Company’s 40 Under Forty Illinois Attorneys to Watch. In 2015, she was included in The Best Lawyers in America ©.
