During my CS case Don was extremely proactive. We stayed in contact via e-mail and I never waited for a response. While waiting for the other party to respond to requests Don would always ensure they weren't just sitting on our request trying to prolong issues. We were able to get the other party to agree to my requests and I'm very happy with the outcome of the case.
Don has been the best lawyer I ever needed.He handled my divorce case in Boone county. I can't imagine having a better outcome. Don responded to all my emails and phone calls. The days we had court he showed me all current paperwork and informed me of possible outcomes. He gave me choices based on various facts of the case and always listened and never talked over me as some lawyers can do. He cares about you as a person and not just a case number. I always felt confident with him in my corner. If I ever needed a lawyer again in the future, Don would be the first one I called. I would definitely recommend him to fight for you.
I was in such a desperate situation with my sons father. We had been in court for 3 years while another attorney handled my case and I was dug deeper and deeper into a hole. It was to the point where I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel. Every court date I felt I was just in a more hopeless situation than the last time. It was so discouraging. After hiring Don Ray everything immediately changed pace. He made me feel like he actually cared about the result and I knew he was putting his all into it. He made sure I understood everything about the bigger picture and helped me make the best decisions for the best outcome. If you want someone who will FIGHT for your rights this man is the one to go to. I am for ever in debt to you, Don. Thank you for everything.
I would highly recommend Donald Ray's legal experience and divorce case leadership, and his legal prowess was proven in how he handled the case I asked him to represent me on. He has a vast knowledge on how to handle various steps of the divorce and settlement process, in which he always kept an open and honest approach in helping me understand the risk and rewards associated with each decision and/or scenario and how it could play out either to your advantage or disadvantage. His services were transparent on cost and what you should expect to pay given the legal requirements that were necessary to execute on the case.
Attorney Donald Ray assisted me in Family, Child Care/Support, Child Custody, and Adoption. Donald Ray is hands down the most honorable attorney that resides in the Rockford, IL area. Mr. Ray is compassionate about his work and is very knowledgeable in providing legal advice. During times when I was impatient with unfavorable results, Mr. Ray remained loyal to my case. I would refer Attorney Ray to anyone in a difficult situation, requiring legal representation.
Ok so your here looking for a Great Lawyer... well your search is complete!!
Don, is by far the best lawyer I have ever come across. I was in a desperate situation with my psychotic ex wife that love to make false allegations in an attempt to mess with my summer visitation with my son. Don took control immediately and made me feel relieved knowing that he had things under control. At no time did I ever lose faith in Don, even when things looked at its worst Don stood strong and set me at ease and made my ex wife's and her attorney look like lliteral fools. I feel sorry for anybody that has any other attorney besides Don...
Thanks Don for everything!!!!!
Attorney Ray made me feel at ease from the first moment that I stepped into his office for my consultation. I knew that he was the attorney that I needed. At every step of my divorce, which was at times quite contentious, he was honest, and upfront about what was realistic and had no problem taking care of any issues that arose. He took his time to explain things to me when I was unsure, and at times when I thought I was at the end of my rope, was supportive and made me feel that he had my best interest and was in my corner. I would recommend Attorney Ray to anyone! Not only is he, in my opinion, an excellent attorney, but he treats you with compassion, not just a paying client. I hope I will never have a need for another attorney, but if I did, he is the one that I would be contacting, no hesitation.
Attorney Don Ray is an exceptional attorney. He tracked down the father of my children for years, making him responsible for paying his child support. It didn't matter what state he chose to reside in, Don was always right on top of it. He's very trustworthy and always came through for my family! I highly recommend him!
Don is an amazing attorney. He bypasses being coy, and beating around the bush, so to speak, with a candid bluntness needed for courtroom situations, saving precious time. He exudes endless patience with me, and my misunderstandings of the family law legal process. (Sure there were some eyes rolling, but in good humor) He will not talk over your head, nor fill it with fancifull promises that may not be able to be kept. He tells it like it is good, bad, or ugly, but he is on your side. He also posesses a sense of humor,easing the anxiety. My case has been quite .convoluted, yet he did not hold my hand, but lead the way. Although he is blunt, and fierce, he is also compassionate. A hero? Possibly. Just needs a cape.
Mr. Ray was patient with the process and kept on pursuing the child support modification long after I became frustrated. Throughout all of the continuances and nonsense that kept happening he remined calm and patient and kept me informed of what I needed to know, and didn't bog me down with unneccessary details. Mr. Ray kept his word and didn't charge me any additional fees even though the modification process took 9 months. I truly appreciate all he's done to help and get my child support modified! Thank you!
