LaDonna Cousins
In the beginning I was nervous with what I perceived to be lack of communication, but I later learned that Ms. Cousins was trying to minimize the billable time by only reaching out to me when it was absolutely necessary. When I did speak with her, I always felt reassured that she was on top of things. Ms. Cousins was very relatable and pleasant and represented me successfully in resolving my legal issues where I was satisfied with the outcome.

Excellent Service
Williams Law Group provided excellent legal skills and personal support with my divorce matter. My attorney, LaDonna and her paralegal team kept an open line of communication, provided quick responses to my concerns through email or phone, legal guidance, and provided emotional support as I navigated through my divorce. Often, high cost and stressful circumstances are unavoidable when dealing with a divorce. However you want a legal team to provide outstanding legaI service, aligned with your needs, AND cares and empathize with your concerns to provide the best overall experience. I appreciate everything LaDonna and her team has done to help finalize my divorce.

Excellent - Would HIGHLY Recommend
Ms. Cousin's was the second attorney I had used with Williams Law. She is certainly the best among the best and I would not hesitate to use her or recommend her to anyone in need of first-class representation in a family law matter. I found her to be professional, prepared, and quite impactful.

Attorney Cousins Is the BESTTTTTT
Atty. Cousins went above and beyond to help me get my son back to back to me after his “father” for lack of a better word, stole him from me during a visit. This was a multi-state situation and she not only was able to assist me here in New Jersey but helped to assist my other lawyer in Georgia. She was up late and up early working in my case nothing slipped through the cracks she knew EXACTLY what she was doing at every turn during my two week long three hearing hearing. Everything was filed and prepared timely nothing was ever forgotten or looked over. During the hearings, our first hearing we were given little to no notice like I’m talking a few minutes and soon as the hearing started SHE WAS ON IT. Prepared point by point you would’ve never knew we had such a short notice. That eased my mind for the reminder of my ordeal because I knew I was in good hands. I trusted whatever she said and everything she instructed to do. She always was helpful in that I wasn’t having to do all the calling and emailing and searching she was right there helping with that as well. And everything worked out thanks to her i have my son back in Atlanta safe. I don’t know what I would’ve done without her. I can’t say enough good things. I’ve been a paralegal the last 8 years so I know the work that goes on behind the scenes so I also want to mention Helen Attorney Cousins paralegal who was so patient and kind to me when I called the office a million times : ) thank you for all that you did to help as well. Thank you all so much. I’m from Jersey my family and friends are in jersey i will be recommending Attorney Cousins to all things custody related!!! She’s the best all around!!! Thank you again.

Great Divorce Lawyer
I used Ms. Cousins for my recent divorce and she was great throughout the entire process. She gave me all of my options and explained everything thoroughly in a way I would understand. She was in constant contact with me either through email or phone calls and was very understanding of the situation I was going through. I highly recommend using her.

Best Lawyer Ever
From the moment of our consultation Ms Lodanna was very proactive in her approach to be my lawyer. She believed in my rights as a father to my son and fought for my rights. She was able to submit information to the court before the court date that explain all my legal problems and also submitted evidence backing those claims in a timely manner. With all the evidence being organized the way it was the case only had 2 court session for the judge to rule in my favor. She reply to my calls and emails in a timely manner and performed beyond expectations in court in my defense. I consult with a few lawyers before consulting with MS Lodanna, and they all try to discourage me from pursuing my case , saying will be difficult for a judge to rule in my favor. MS Lodanna told me from the beginning that my demands were resonable and she was amazing in fighting for my rights as a father. I came from a situation where I could not see my son to having JOINT LEGAL AND PHYSICAL CUSTODY, and a resonable form of child support from the mother which was in my favor. Not many men can leave today's legal system of child custody feeling happy and victorious but I did. PS: I love my son and put him first so did MS Lodanna and we both did right by him. Thanks ever so much, I am forever in your debts.

Excellent Attorney!!!
LaDonna M. Cousins, Esq., Rozin Golinder Law, LLC, was my divorce attorney and I had the best legal representation. The divorce process is upsetting, confusing and difficult but LaDonna helped me to get through everything quickly and efficiently. Whenever I emailed her and asked questions, she or her assistant always got back to me in a very timely manner and always explained everything very clearly. Whenever my ex-wife or her attorney were being unreasonable, LaDonna quickly made things right. Whether it concerned parental visitation or financial matters, she always looked out for my best interests (and my children’s best interests). Through this very tumultuous time, it was very reassuring to know that LaDonna was working hard for me. She made sure that the outcome of my divorce was fair to me and my children so that we could move on with our lives. If you need a divorce attorney, I highly recommend LaDonna M. Cousins, Esq.

LaDonna Cousins is Excellent!
The dictionary describes the word "Superlative" as the highest kind, quality and order, surpassing all else or others, supreme. I would define it as LaDonna Cousins. As a family lawyer, she is of the highest kind, quality and order...supreme. LaDonna's knowledge in child custodial law and attention to detail to my case put my worries at ease. I have had custody issues for the past 5+ years. LaDonna was able to prepare my case and present my case very professionally to the judge. LaDonna was able to have my child support terminated retroactive a few months and also have the defendant pay a very decent portion of my court fees! She was very clear in what I had to do and gave me deadlines of when I needed to have certain documents back to her. She was very attentive and responsive. She was always there when I had a question. LaDonna helped me come out on top. There is no glorious victory without an epic battle. LaDonna was the sole game changer in my case. I am extremely happy with LaDonna Cousins and I highly recommend her as a Family Lawyer.

Best lawyer I ever met
LaDonna is one the best lawyer I ever worked with - knowledgeable, compassionate, flexible at a reasonable cost. She listened to my situation/concerns/questions patiently and I felt comfortable with her on my first meeting itself. She made the most difficult situation in my life a bit easier, even with COVID constraints, my divorce was finalized within 3-4 months. LaDonna and her team were always available to help/consult and offered comprehensive options/advise on child custody/support, alimony, financial settlements and dealt with my ex’s lazy lawyer. She even managed to convince judge to grant divorce without us appearing in the court. I’m so glad that I decided to hire her to represent me in this matter. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is dealing with divorce or family related legal issues.

Great Representation
LaDonna did an excellent job on advising me of my rights while assisting to negotiate my marital separation agreement. I wanted a quick divorce and thought it wise to just pass on child support, however, I was advised that my child had a right to the child support. I'm glad I took the time and listened for the benefit of my child. She took charge in follow up with the other attorney and filed everything quickly. Even with all the delays with Covid19, my divorce took less than a year to finalize. When I first met with LaDonna for a consultation, I had a good gut feeling about her. After our discussion, I hired her on the spot and I am glad I made that decision. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking about filing for a divorce.

Amazing !!
LaDonna was such a pleasure to talk to, I didn’t feel nervous talking about my case with her even at the first meet. I was going through the worst case with my ex and she made everything easy for me. She got all the notes and questions ready for the trail. We won if anyone was curious which shows you that if you have her on your team you’re going win. If I ever need another lawyer I don’t need to feel scared trying to find one because I would always feel more comfortable having her on my team.

An advocate and a friend
LaDonna was everything a lawyer should be, smart and a fierce advocate. However she was also kind, of high moral character and she became my friend. I needed all of these things while going through one of the most difficult times of my life. We were a team, working hard to secure my definition of justice. I found LaDonna by chance and she was truly a Godsend.
