I been with Don for six years through a tough divorce/ custody issue, and I remember jokingly asking him after a real tough day just how can he keeping doing what he does and stay sane, to say nothing about maintaining his generally cheerful and upbeat demeanor. With time, I came to the conclusion he just believes strongly in what he does because it helps families try to stay as much a family as they can for the benefit of everyone involved. He just "gets" it. I've never known him to be anything but understanding to the needs of everyone, and to realize what the big picture, despite all the errant emotion of the people caught up in the moment, needs to be. He once said to me, that no matter how awful things were at the moment in question, my sons needed my ex and I to figure out a way to co-exist and co-parent for quite some time. It wasn't about blame, or adding notches to his professional "belt", it was always about doing what was right. He may have fought for me, but he really fought for what was best for my two boys, and he did so with decency, dignity, respect, and just down-right compassion. I would say without reservation, if you need a lawyer because you find yourself in the awful situation that I was in when I first met him, hire Don, and listen to him, and have faith that, though the process takes its own sweet time to work its way through, he will get you were you need to be. And along the way, you will (hopefully) learn to enjoy his sense of humour and arcane knowledge of eighties era comedy movies. He's a good guy who just happens to be a lawyer as well.

Don simply put - is the best lawyer - I've have ever had the honor of working with.
Don is at the top of his game and knows divorce law like the back of his hand.
He is confident, competant, has impeccable character, reputation, integrity, AND
is a humanitarian to boot.
I can't believe I'm writing adjectives like humanitarian and lawyer in the same sentence...however, with Don it really is so very true.
"Super lawyer" doesn't even scratch the surface.
My life as I knew it was over, Don was there - cool as a cucumber, patient and understood everything that I was going through. He gave me time - when I needed it. Gave me options and council when I needed it. When it was decision time - we made them together and in logical and informed ways. We got a plan together, modified it as needed and came out with something I never thought…I'd ever have..."A Life and a Future".
You hear about good lawyers - well I got a GREAT ONE and he saw me through the roughest time in my life.
If you need a lawyer that knows exactly what the courts demand, is an expert on divorce-law, property division, real-estate, title issues and can give you wise council and guidence in dealing with the creditor aftermath of a single income senario…
If you need a lawyer that can help you avoid common and not so common pitfalls, and knows definitively how to protect you from both the short and long-term ramifications of divorce…
If you need a lawyer that understands divorce not just from the law perspective, but is sensitive to the divorce process as it applies to you and those you love…
If your spouse just went out and got the biggest baddest lawyer on the block…
You get Don…and then let them bring it!
If you need a lawyer that can help protect you from the choices and actions of others… - then look no further - I'm serious...look no further.
Many people just give up - and I can understand why - it's an overwhelming process - riddled with a thousand pitfalls that are all counter-intuitive and will most definitely lead you (if on your own) to utter ruin.
Don made it seem like child's play- I had a very very complicated divorce.
Don kept me from making rash, foolish and emotional decisions.
He helped me play a forced "long game" no matter how volatile the situation became…
and when it counted MOST - Don delievered!!!
Don not only aided me in my divorce, he preserved my future.
Don wasn't "just" my attorney - he was truly a close-confidant and friend.
Words - won't ever do it.
My sincerest gratitude,
Thanks Don :)

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Don Pitman is one of a kind attorney. He possesses extreme knowledge of family law being a very respected lecturer and teacher of other attorneys in family law. Having had the opportunity to have battled attorney Pitman on several contested matters I can truly say, he remained professional yet unrelenting in advocating for his client. I Strongly endorse him.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
After working with Attorney Pitman over many years, he has proven himself to be an aggressive, knowledgeable, and dedicated advocate for his clients. Attorney Pitman is extremely dedicated to his client while working through a very sensitive and painful issue. Both his and my client thanked him for his help in resolving the matter. His knowledge and ability was instrumental in the case and I look forward to working with him again.
