Honest, knowlegeable, caring and strong
From the initial consultation, all the way through the entire divorce process, Donna Hung and her team were there for me, providing guidance, reassurance, and support at every step. They are very knowlegeable, organized, and their work is impeccable. My emails and phone calls were always answered promptly. And, most importantly, they listen and they fight hard for their clients. I highly recommend Donna for any legal situation and I thank my lucky stars for the day I found them.

The Best Family Attorney
Donna is hands down the best family attorney there is. I was going through a very difficult time when my daughter's mother left the residence and refused to allow me to see our daughter. She was limiting contact and was trying to relocate. I had a different attorney at the time and my case wasn't getting the attention needed due the time sensitivity of my case. I wasn't even able to speak to my previous attorney and was getting the run around. I made the difficult decision of switching attorneys in the middle of my case and it was the best decision I made. Donna was very understanding and compassionate. She is very realistic and straight forward and does not give you false expectations. She personally answered every single email well under 24 hours. She pays very close attention to detail and works very diligently on your case, as well as every member of her staff,and is open to suggestions when it comes to a strategic approach. She leaves no stone unturned. She was extremely kind to me throughout the entire process and was patient offering words of encouragement during this frustrating time. As a result we were able to settle without going to court, I was able to establish 50/50 timesharing, and our daughter did not relocate. Since then I have been able to rebuild the bond with our daughter as well as with her brother. I owe this all to Donna Hung and I don't only see her as my attorney but I view her as a friend. I highly recommend her to anyone when it comes to custody and she is a huge advocate for Father's Rights. Donna is the best.

efficient and attentive
I appreciate the assistance I received from Donna Hung and her paralegal for an international uncontested divorce case. They maintained a forward momentum with the case, even when I was the cause of delays on my end. Their clarity of explanations was especially helpful.

Thank you again for your fantastic service
This is the second time Donna Hung and her team represent me. She has handled both my divorce and, most recently, a prenuptial agreement. I have found her to be very empathetic; she understands the law and has consistently delivered beyond what I had asked. She replies promptly to phone calls and emails, and I consider her team to be highly efficient while providing exceptional work. I have referred her work to my friends and colleagues, and she has always done a magnificent job for them. I am genuinely grateful and appreciative for being able to work with Donna. I hope not to require an attorney any time soon, but I know I want Donna and her team to continue to represent me if that day comes.

Professionalism, integrity and expert guidance are just some words that came to my mind when mentioning Donna Hung Law Group.
“Divorce is a horrible and stressful thing to go through, and the process can be very scary and overwhelming if you don't have the right representation. Donna Hung Law Group was the "right representation". “I am extremely satisfied with the representation Donna Hung Law Group provided me in my divorce case. Ms. Donna Hung handled my case. I always felt that she listened to what I had to say and was always honest with me. She told me the things that could go wrong and the things that could go right. She is a lawyer that cares about her clients and knows the limits of what the law allows. I'm glad I had her on my side. She is extremely bright and personable and was always available to listen to me and help me to stay calm and optimistic. I gave up a few freedoms, but it will be well worth it in the long run and my boys know who I am and how much I love them.” I cannot thank Ms. Donna Hung and her team enough for what they have done for me. There are many attorneys out there, but you want to choose someone who puts your interests first, and genuinely cares about YOU. Without any hesitation, I recommend Donna Hung Law Group wholeheartedly.” Van Truong

Relocation with minor children & dissolution of marriage
Relocation with minor children: For those who are seeking relocation with minor children, Ms.Donna Hung & her team are literally the BEST in Orlando!!! ( I have had 2 other lawyers before Ms.Donna Hung. ) My case was very extensive and it has been going on for over a year before I had found Ms.Donna Hung. My case was not only a dissolution of marriage but it also included domestic violent, injunction & injunction to a criminal case. The odds was against me but I knew my truth & I knew right from the first consultation with Ms.Donna Hung that she was the lawyer I’ve been searching for. During the consultation, she dissected my case & knew everything from the beginning to end without me having to explain much of ANYTHING. She knew exactly what to do, what needed to be fix & trust me there was a lot that needed to be fix Ms.Donna Hung knew exactly what to do, when to do it & how to do it!!! She executed everything so gracefully. I received emails/calls literally every other day from her. Every exchange email from the opposing counsel to everything that was being filed!!! The last 2 lawyers I never received much of anything unless I asked for updates :( Ms.Donna Hung actually CARES !!! SHE IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST IN ORLANDO !!! Seeking relocation with minor children is probably the hardest things to do & the odds of it being granted. Our trial took 2 long days & yes, the judge GRANTED us the relocation. I absolutely love Ms. Donna Hung & her team!!! Thank you for helping my kids, thank you for helping me!!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE !!! You are truly AMAZING !!! ( Yes, I’m posting all my reviews on every platform because she literally changed my life )

Capable, Competent, Compassionate, and Caring
Donna took the time to prepare for the case and answered every single question I had. This was a contested divorce and the opposition was a problem the entire time. She handled every curve ball they tried to throw and was able to handle everything professionally, but decisively. This was a very stressful time in my life, and I appreciate the time and effort she put into my case. She truly cared about me and the outcome, and what was the best for me. Thank you!

So glad I had Donna on my side
My divorce had all the attributes of a typical case that would eventually end in court. I was a very difficult time for me as I was very anxious, sad and upset. I consulted with several lawyers but when I met Miss Hung and her staff I was convinced I found my attorney. She was very compassionate of my particular situation, but most importantly she kept me on track during our meetings by focusing on the important aspects of my case. Miss Hung and her team were very professional and always on the top of things throughout the entire process. She delivers great results by choosing the most efficient alternative given the circumstances. Miss Hung is also very accessible and I was able to set up both office and phone appointments with her very easily. In the end we were able to settle the case without a trial and I was very happy with the settlement. I would recommend Miss Hung and her team without hesitation to anyone looking for a great divorce/custody/family attorney.

Donna is intelligent and quick to understand. She is a good listener and is organized in her work. She made sure I understood the ramifications of each step along the way. I liked her balance of empathy and logic as it related to my case. Donna was a good communicator which helped when there was a need to communicate with the judge and the other side's legal team.

Knowledgeble and suportive
Was a great experience for a bad situation. I feel she did the best possible job of protecting my assets and looking out for my future. I definitely will taker her advise for prenup, if I ever decide to marry again (and would have Donna draft it).

No better Firm to represent you through your time in need.....
Donna Hung and her entire team could not have taken better care of me through my divorce. You will not find a better firm to represent you and your interests in Orlando. I could not be more grateful that I chose Donna to represent me during one of the toughest times in my life. I highly recommend Donna and her team!! You will not be disappointed.

Truly grateful
Donna did exactly what I hoped for. My divorce process had lots of potential to become very messy but incredibly she was able to help me set up a fair proposal for an uncontested divorce. She was compassionate and caring and with a lot of patience we were able to obtain what we wanted. Long story short, both my ex wife and I ended up in good terms, we are still "friends" and I do believe Donna played a huge part in this. She definitively went beyond to make things happen. Already recommended some friends to her and they are pleased. Thank you Donna!!

The best!
I am grateful to have had Miss Hung and her wonderful team on my side for 2 cases now. I was led through the process with open, honest dialogue and was always in-the-know about how my cases were proceeding. In my latest shared custody case, which spanned over a year, Miss Hung and her team (Monica, you're amazing!) never once relented on the task of getting a positive outcome. This is the ONLY office you need for your family law case! Thank you!

The Best Outcome
I have retained Donna multiple times for paternity and joint custody issues over the years. Each time, she was successful. She is honest, aggressive when necessary, and truly cares about her clients and about father’s rights. I will definitely retain her again if I ever need anything else related to my case.

Amazing work, effort, and ethics.
Donna Hung was kind, caring and professional from the consultation all the way up to the pretrial conference. She saw my case, learned what she needed to know about me and fought for me with the utmost confidence all while doing her best to help me to stay calm and collective throughout the process. In the end, all charges against me were dropped due to the amount of effort and how closely she paid attention to the details of my case. She didn’t settle for a plea or anything and she fought until the very end, tooth and nail to ensure my case never even went to trial. From my experience, Ive learned there is absolutely no doubt that hiring her as an attorney will be a great experience regardless of the outcome because at least you know for sure you have a lawyer by your side who will push the envelope for results and won’t quit! I’ve always had my doubts about hiring lawyers in the first place, yet meeting with Donna completely changed my mind about that especially via the amount of confidence she displayed when taking my case, just consult with her for yourself and I’m sure you’ll feel the same. I had been charged with a DV crime I did not commit and it felt as though the world instantly turned against me no matter how much proof there was of my innocence or how my background showed I didn’t partake in violence, all of this starting from a 911 call over a misunderstanding (not from my wife) and my declination of an officer searching my vehicle. I felt as though my life and career would be over! Donna didn’t allow that; she made sure justice was delivered swiftly and effectively and her past experience provided her the ability to protect my freedom, household and image with ease and finesse. I could not be more thankful for her representation of me and I seriously doubt any other lawyer could’ve done a better job in this particular lane law practice.
