I have met with Don and know a few others who really trust him and his work.

Don helped my husband and I prepare our will and trust. He talked us through every detail and made us feel comfortable with every decision made. I highly recommend his services!

Donald Messenger has been my personal attorney for more than 20 years. During that time he has assisted me in buying and selling a business, buying and selling five homes, rental property issues and divorce proceedings. In every case he has been professional, offering sound legal advice. He is always understanding of situations, but does not mince words. His advice is clear and to the point. I have also witnessed two judges complimenting him for his thorough preparation. He has the respect not only of judges but of his colleagues.
