Absolutely the best Family Lawyer in RI!
My son is 18 now but I have hired Don twice to handle some very emotionally tough situations with trying to co-parent with my son’s father. He put my mind at ease in both court cases. He provided fair solutions to resolve issues and give me the peace I needed back in my life. Thank you Don for everything! I will always recommend you.

I am truly thankful for all that Don has done!
Don was truly a blessing. He came into my case late and was able to turn things around. I was in the middle of a tough case and facing it on my own. I was in over my head and didn’t know where to turn. After meeting Don, it felt as though a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Don came up with a strategy, explained everything thoroughly, and executed as promised. His expertise definitely made a difference and I am truly thankful for all he has done for me and my family.

Don is the absolute best in the field!
I needed a lawyer for child placement for both my sons and I found Don and I’m beyond happy I did! He talked me through the law process from beginning to end and told me what generally happens. He listened and documented all concerns and he went above and beyond to address them with the judge. He has helped me along the entire case and we got the results we wanted!
