The Best Choice.
Donna Marshall was referred from a friend; who saw her at court. His observation of her was that he should have hired her instead of his current lawyer. His statement," She was a real pit-bull and a force to be reckoned with". " Remarkable". I did hire Ms. Marshall; and am glad I did! Donna Marshall in a time when your thoughts are all over the board, brings solace and and peace to your heart. It is difficult to make decisions when the cart of your life has been upturned. Trust in Donna; she does have the knowledge to help you through the trying times of life... She does listen and has the insight of experience to carry you to a resolution that is amicable and justified. Marshall Law is a professional and competent service worth the investment!

Prenup - efficient and very personable
Donna Marshall and her professional staff helped to write a prenup that fulfilled my needs and made my future husband confident to sign the document. They are easy to talk to and reply in layman's terms.... a language a non-lawyer can understand. Thank you for making this document acceptable for us.

Excellent professional and friendly service
I hired Donna to produce a complex family law contract. I was very pleased with the work she carried out and the insight she provided also really helped me define my requirements. Her service was delivered on time and met my challenging required timescale. I have no hesitation in recommending Donna to any perspective clients.

Super Lawyer Plus
I’d been involved in a very bitter Divorce Battle for over 4 years plus. It involved 3 Judges, six Attorneys, 4 Mediators, 4 Forensic Accountants and Tons of Money. Then I met Donna Marshall whose Command of the Law And unique ability to reach thru the Clouds & Fog, grasp the issues and Resolve them in a Timely Fashion At Extremely Reasonable Billing. Hadi started with Ms. Marshall I’m Confident the Entire Process would have Been Resolved Years Earlier

Exceptional Service from start to finish
Let me say this is a hard process to begin with, and Donna Marshall and her staff assured me they would be with me every step of the way. They were there when I had questions concerns and to guide me through the process nobody ever intend to go through when getting married. Divorce is messy, but Donna Marshall kept the process as direct and businesslike as possible. If I ever had to do it again or know someone going through the process with without children involved she would be the one I hired. She makes you feel like family!

She is EVERYTHING!
I spent a lot of time looking into the type of person I wanted to be by my side representing me during one of the hardest times in my life. I was looking for someone with a good reputation. Someone respected by peers and members of our community. Confident, knowledgeable, honest and fair. Someone who would FIGHT for me. I found all of this at Marshall Law. Donna and her team are amazing and I recommend her to everyone I know in need of a Family Attorney.

DONNA IS THE TOP ATTORNEY IN NAPLES.
From the first meeting until the last Donna was the most professional attorney that I could have had. She listened to my concerns, she understood my fears and helped me walk through my divorce every step of the way. She was always considerate with her time and at the same time she was always cautious with the need for me to talk it out as she didn't want to spend my money needlessly. She is a tough negotiator and doesn't back down and gave me the courage to do the same. The outcome of the divorce was excellent for me and I would encourage anyone going through a divorce, especially one that is complicated with many moving parts to call Donna. She is transparent, honest and a guiding light. Thanks so much!

Mr
Ms. Marshall was extremely professional and extremely candid in her handling of my divorce. She never failed to quickly respond to issues and constantly suggested ways to resolve items in the least contentious and most efficient manner, yet never avoided taking a strong position, if warranted. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Oustanding Family Law Attorney
Donna Marshall was absolutely wonderful to work with. She represented me as a client. I have worked with many attorneys over the years and Donna Marshall is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and best attorneys I have ever dealt with. She is understands the legal process, pertaining to family law specifically, inside and out. She is one of the few attorneys who put their clients interests ahead of their own. You can fully trust her to help you make the best decisions during a difficult time. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to have the best possible outcome for all parties involved during any dispute in family court.
