About Donna

Learn Donna’s areas of practice.

I represent my clients completely, focusing on what they really want as a result and working with them and their partner to get there.  Some of my Family Law clients stay married.  These partners stay married because I recognize that they have issues in their relationships, but do not want to be divorced.  If both parties agree that they want to preserve their marriage, I engage in marital mediation to resolve the issues that are causing the difficulties. 

 

I believe that no one gets married to get divorced.  Family is most important.  If a family can remain intact, it is the best result.

 

If a couple needs to divorce, I work with my client to do this in the least expensive and traumatic manner possible.  I encourage Mediation and Collaborative Divorce wherever possible.  Mediation is where both parties work with a Mediator to resolve their issues and come to their own agreement.  In Collaborative Divorce, each party has an attorney who must be Collabotatively trained, and the parties sign a contract that they will not go to Court regarding issues but will work within the Collaborative process to do so.  Both Mediation and Collaborative Divorce save money, personal energy, stress, and time.  Also, these processes are private so peoples' most personal business remains out of the Court spotlight.

 

Family Law issues are most difficult and stressful for my clients.  I work with them to resolve their matters with as little stress and expense as possible.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
VERY HAPPY
Donna was working in tandem with another attorney on a foreclosure we were experiencing. Her ability to navigate the process eased our anxiety. she kept us informed of all possible scenarios before and during the case. It pays to hire someone who has had experience with the players on the "other side of the table" . Donna is that attorney. Anyone who hires her will benefit from her experience and kindness. Thank You Donna !!!

Excellent representation
I used Attorney Convicer to handle my divorce and represent me in other legal matters. I have been very pleased with Attorney Convicer 's knowledge and professionalism. She always kept me informed at every step of the way. She had my best interests in mind and provided sound legal advise. Attorney Convicer made certain that I was awarded the very best settlement possible. I would highly recommend Attorney Convicer if you are going through a contentious divorce or for any legal matter.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Feb 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I highly endorse Attorney Convicer. Having opposed her on several foreclosure matters she has always represented her clients zealously and with a great command of the law. She did such a great job and acted so professionally that I have actually referred family members to her for family law matters. I cannot think of a higher endorsement from one attorney to another than to refer a family member. That family member is very pleased with her handling of that matter and is very happy that I recommended Attorney Convicer."

This attorney has an impressive command of her areas of practice and she is gifted at straight-forward and understandable legal advice.

Mediation Attorney | Dec 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Donna is super knowledgeable in the areas of family law and foreclosure law. She is tough and will advocate strongly for her clients' best interests. Using her family law mediation sessions will save couples thousands of dollars as an alternative to paying for lawyers and fighting issues in court. I recommend Donna as a veteran attorney- you get so much more with her than with a big firm that may have a fancy office."
