Highly recommended attorney
I have to give thanks to Donna, because of her knowledge, straight forward approach, and compassion my husband and I were able to gain full custody of my stepdaughter. She truly cares about her clients and wants what is best for the families. Donna has been understanding in the times we could not pay and worked with us. I highly recommend her, if you are looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable and compassionate Donna is it.

Awesome Attorney
I was a client of Donna Goldman. She is a very knowledgeable, caring, sensitive and straight forward attorney. She helped me through my divorce proceeding. Not only was she an attorney she was more like my attorney, friend and counselor. However my husband and I decided to reconcile and give it another shot. But you can best believe it wasn’t because she did anything wrong. We both decided to work it out and give it a fair shot. We analyzed and thought about our 20yrs and wanted to make it work. If you need an attorney; Donna is your person. Very accurate, fast turn over with paperwork, good with finding your spouse hidden money and the list goes on. I love this woman. If I ever needed an attorney I will keep her on speed dial. Thank you Donna for all you’ve done. And thank you for hearing my cries and not even charging for those xtra moments.

Finest Family Attorney
I came to Donna Goldman in a rough custody time sharing, with my child's abusive neglecting mother. She was able to help me sustain my child under my primary supervision and time sharing. More than just a legal representative for me and my child! Her knowledge, experience, and careing character has put the law by our side. We truly appreciate and love Donna and Sharon. They both have gone to great lengths in support when we needed it most. I will always recommend Donna Goodman!

I recommend her
I've had Donna as my lawyer for about 5 years. I can't say any negative thing about her. She's been more than helpful to me and has made my life less stressful. I think the money is well spent and I would most definitely hire her for any other legal problem.

Thank god for Donna!!!
I want to start out by saying that I am eternally grateful to Donna. She has changed my life for the better and because of her perseverance, I finally have my family together including full custody of my son. My custody case was probably one of the worst ever seen by the courts. Donna and her staff did an amazing job handling my case from beginning to end. There are no words to describe what she has done for me and my family. I would refer her to anyone looking for an attorney that specializes in family law.

Highly Reccomend
I would highly recommend attorney Goldman to anyone who is seeking an experienced attorney in Family Law. Donna and her Paralegal, Sharon, are dedicated, caring, and work very hard to obtain a positive result.

One of the Best
Donna handled my divorce in 1999, making everything as easy as possible for me. She was able to hammer out a settlement in extremely adverse conditions, avoiding a lengthy trial. Since my final judgement, Donna has handled multiple contempt of court violations against my ex and two separate attempts at modifying that hard won settlement agreement. She has won every single case and has done an incredible job as a lawyer and advocate for me. I would not trust any other attorney, especially seeing the parade of lawyers she has gone up against in my case. Donna went above and beyond, not just accepting the minimal information provided by the opposition. She doesn't settle for mediocre and fights so hard to win. I would recommend Donna Goldman to anyone in need of a highly qualified, knowledgeable and dedicated attorney,you want her in your corner, not against you. Donna's assistant Sharon is a gem, always taking my silly and not so silly phone calls. She worked hard and even went as far as going into the office when it was closed in order to handle and emergency that came up over the holidays. When you have advocates like Donna and Sharon, you know there will be people on the other side who are angry and not happy with their work. That's the way it should be.

STAY AWAY!
Invested a lot of time and money for more problems with Donna and Sharon. Horrible cannot explain the service I received. She is very confusing and unknowledgeable. She will constantly give you the run around. She charges insane amount, counting a 5 minute conversation as a 1/2 hour of pay. Spent over 5,000 and got no where but more of a headache. I truly wish I had done more research prior to hiring her. Hope to help some one stay away and save your money!

Bad Representation
I would stay away from this lawyer. I am of the opinion that she handled my divorce in a very ill manner. She was uncaring, unresponsive, unprofessional, and incompetent. She certainly did not represent me well during mediation and at my divorce hearing. Her wrong advice and poor judgement has caused me considerable pain and economic suffering. I DO NOT recommend this attorney!!!

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2007.

Public Reprimand issued in FL, 2007
updated on 05/05/2016

Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

Donna's comment: “This complaint was NOT made by my client but by her former husband, I had alleged that he owed a substantial monies to my client because he was not honest with her and the court before she retained me). My client did not agree with this complaint. The complaint involved a technical accounting error where no monies were lost at all. The complaint did not involve my legal skills.”
