Frost Brown Todd (FBT) Partner Vivian Basdekis has been selected as a Dual Fellow of the Academy of Adoption & Assisted Reproduction Attorneys (AAAA). This prestigious honor recognizes Basdekis’s extensive experience and high ethical standards in the practice of adoption law and Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) law.

She also frequently represents national and international clients in West Virginia court proceedings to obtain pre-birth, post-birth, and parentage orders.
