Don got me everything I wanted and more. He worked with me and my budget and gave me the best legal service I could have ever had. Don handled my case with passion and cared about my needs as if they were his own. Even when he was injured, he came to court in pain to make sure my case was handled correctly. He got me joint custody and 50% time with my child and no child support. As a man I always identified the law as not being on the side when it comes to parental matters, but Don showed me I have more rights than I thought I had. He always kept me informed about my case no matter what day it was. I was always able to get in contact with him and if he was busy he reached out to me as soon as he was free. I thank him for putting me in a position where I can be a proud father. I will most definitely send everyone I know his way.

Don time and time again has gone out of his way to help my case and my family in every way. Don is considerate and really cares about people and thats what seperates him from the rest. I highly recommend this intelligent, respectful, and careing attorney for anyone looking for legal help/ advice. Also Don will stand up for you and kick some ass! Seriously he is the best attorney I have ever came acrossed.

:e is a good man. Compassionate and caring above and beyond to his clients. Went out of his way to keep my spirits up and my mind focused during one of the hardest times of my life. Treated me like a friend, not a job. When it was time to fight he put his soft side away and the man can argue! Some days I almost laughed because he was such a smart ass (in a good way) he knows how to get to the opposing client and make them show their faults!

I attended the University of Florida's College of Law in the 90s. Upon graduation, I chose not to practice for various reasons. One of those reasons was that I saw too many of my classmates who seemed to be there for the wrong reasons; namely status, money or pure unadulterated VANITY (aka "my favorite sin," as Al Pacino famously said in Devil's Advocate). In truth, I was also guilty of such to some degree.
I did, however, see a few diamonds in this rather dismal pile of humanity. A select few among them were, in fact, attending law school only for the love of the law's true purpose. These legal
knights treated the law with a purity and a reverence usually reserved for the medical profession or clergy. To these future lawyers, it wasn't about a Rolex watch or BMW, but it was about practicing their deeply held belief in the vision that once was THE LAW; to uphold justice, defend the weak, and be an untouchable champion of the helpless.
Don Roberts reminds me of one of those legal crusaders I was privileged to call my classmates. While helping me with a family law case, I saw him courageously take on an entire courtroom, including an irate judge, in his aggressive defense of his client -a sweet woman who was otherwise defenseless and vulnerable against her cruel ex-husband's powerful yet spiritually sold-out DKNY and Prada wearing lawyer. Throwing personal concerns to the wind, he laid it all on the line to successfully defend this woman's rights, where less noble counselors would have shied away- concerned more for their bottom line than their client. In fact, her previous lawyer had sold her down the river, for exactly this reason, and if not for his fearless intercession that day, she would have lost her case right there and then.
For these reasons, and many others, I cannot recommend Mr. Roberts highly enough.

Don is a high powered and compassionate advocate for anyone going through a divorce or legal separation. He understands difficult challenges and is not afraid to advocate for his client's position. He also works to heal family conflicts so that post-divorce, the parties care for their children in the best possible way. I make referrals to Don regularly.

I endorse this lawyer. When Don and I were co-workers, he was hard working and dedicated to helping his clients. Later, he and I were on opposing sides. He was a vigorous advocate for his client. Don has an excellent work ethic.
