    • I recommend Donald Francis.
    • I hired Donald 1-6 months ago.
    • Donald handled my Adoption matter.

    We hired Don for a private adoption and couldn't have been more pleased with his work! He has restored our faith that there are still good ethical attorneys around! He doesn't rely on secretaries and assistants to do his work for him, he actually does it himself...which is rare! He is very proactive in getting business taken care of! He will be finalizing our daughter's adoption very soon!

    • I do not recommend Donald Francis.
    • I hired Donald 1-3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I Paid Mr. Don Francis over $5,000 and I paid most of it up front I was never late on any payments and was all paid up before my last hearing. He was always late and never prepared for what was to be done. I didn't get anything that was ordered to me. I tried calling him and left him many messages to call back and he never did. I feel like he robbed me blind and pray that no one else fall for him

    • I do not recommend Donald Francis.
    • I hired Donald more than 3 years ago.
    • Donald handled my Child Abuse matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Comes into the courtroom late (always) Never has papers done or organized. Shuffles through papers with judge watching him angrily. He is overweight, sits back in his chair, crosses his arms and just is a last minute-kinda guy. He pushed a critical time in my court case because he wanted to go hunting. He doesn't want to be a lawyer anymore and it shows. I have talked to other clients and they have been through the same thing
