Cordell & Cordell In Wall Street Journal

Jason Hopper Wall Street JournalWhen looking for analysis of the latest divorce trends and movements in the industry, the Wall Street Journal turns to Cordell & Cordell.

Once again the prestigious newspaper has called upon a Cordell & Cordell divorce lawyer to provide insight into an important, emerging legal field; this time it’s frozen embryos.

As Indianapolis Divorce Lawyer Jason Hopper explained to the Wall Street Journal, there is a new battle in divorce cases over who controls the rights to frozen embryos after a couple breaks up.

As in vitro fertility treatments – in which an egg and sperm are joined outside the body – become more common, so have post-disputes over the embryos.

Mr. Hopper described how he was able to reach an out-of-court agreement over preserved embryos on behalf of his client who didn’t want his ex-wife to use them. For now the embryos will stay frozen and Hopper’s negotiated settlement exposes the fertility clinic to legal liability if they are used without the man’s consent.
