Highly Recommended
Ms. Green is incredibly knowledgeable and will fight for your best interest with tenacity and empathy. She is one of the most ethical people I’ve ever dealt with. She even helped me with my father’s will and settling his estate at no cost! I highly recommend her.

Hire Dawn!
Dawn has represented myself and my children in a family law matter, for the past five years. The only thing that I wound change is getting her to start the process in the first place. I had a previous attorney and my case was just too complex for him. Dawn was able to take it on with no trouble. Dawn is compassionate towards her clients and she is smart in the court room! She is also honest with you. Basing her information on case law, as opposed to gut, she tells you when she believes something is not going to go your way and why. I appreciate that she does not just tell me what I want to hear and take my money. Instead of stopping there, Dawn has brainstormed and researched ways to resolve our situation, that I had never considered. Ideas that she was certain that she would win in the court room and she has. Dawn listens to her clients wants and needs, while adding her professional wisdom as well. Dawn does not just do what a client says to do, knowing that it will not work or that there are other solutions possible. Dawn discusses with you various ways in which to be successful in your case. What you want walking into her office the first time, may not look exactly the same the last time you walk out of the courtroom. You will, however, have a case that has been won and will have what you and your family both need and deserve. Dawn will be my attorney until my daughter turns 18. We appreciate everything that she has done for us.

Highly Recommend for Family Custody - Professional, Honest, Direct, and Responsive
Dawn currently represents me in a family custody case. She came highly recommended to me. I’m confident in Dawn’s legal approach and feel that she has my family’s best interest in mind. She is extremely professional, ethical, responsive, and honest. In helping her clients, she has the hard task of navigating difficult legal matters, which often requires her to be brutally honest. She is very quick to understand your circumstance and is forward thinking. She recommended tools to me that immediately helped our family. I felt she had foresight into my situation. I appreciate her direct approach and feel she is trustworthy, which makes me fully confident in her as my attorney.

Exceptional Same-Sex Divorce Attorney
An exceptional attorney in every regard. Dawn's integrity, honesty and her ability to UN-complicate the intricate legal proceedings and processes that are part of a divorce was of great comfort to me during THE MOST difficult time in my life. beyond her caliber as a legal representative, her billing was fair and exact ... and her staff was/is/continues-to-be beyond extraordinary. I cannot say enough good things about Dawn's representation of me and the clarity of her communications with me throughout my less-than-a-year-long divorce proceeding. EXCEPTIONAL attorney, period.

Exceptional Divorce & Child Custody Attorney
Ms. Green was fantastic leading me through the divorce and child custody process. She is a highly experienced and knowledgeable attorney who represents her clients with the utmost professionalism and integrity. I always felt like she was honest and forthright with me, providing a realistic idea of what to expect throughout the process. One of the things I appreciated the most is that she did her best to be thorough, yet efficient with her work, respecting the fact that the process is an expensive one and she does her best to represent her clients in an exceptional manner, without any time wasted (helping save money where it can be saved). I was comforted knowing that she was always fighting for my best interests and those of my children. I appreciated that she was willing to speak up when I was making a poor decision, guiding me in a better direction and teaching me how to navigate the process more effectively—she understands people, knows the laws, is very familiar with the system and will steer you in a good direction. Despite the mountain of challenges I faced with my case, I am extremely happy with the outcome and I have Dawn to thank! I would highly recommend Ms. Green to anyone going through the divorce and child custody process!

"I endorse this lawyer. I have collaborated with; and, referred cases to Dawn. She is an excellent litigator who understands the complex intricacies of the court system. She is aggressive in her approach but understands how every day problems need to be addressed within the legal system. She possesses a firm resolve to obtain the best result for her clients."
Family Attorney | Aug 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"For many years I have had the privilege of working on cases with Dawn. Without exception, she is prepared, thorough, and an excellent advocate for her client. At the same time, she has earned the respect of her peers and judges alike because she only advocates reasonable positions, and will work tirelessly to assist clients in understanding the process. I have quite frankly never had an experience with Dawn that did not increase my respect and admiration for her. I would recommend her, and quite frequently do recommend her, to anyone!"
