    Attorney Donald Ray is truely a wonderful lawyer and person. He helped me with my divorce case and child support payments that my children's father wasn't paying. He was compassionate during the whole process and brilliant in the court room. He is always available to us for any questions we may have even long after it was over. He truely cares about his clients and their families involved. I would highly recommend Attorney Ray to anyone in need of a excellent family lawyer. I feel very blessed to have had him as my lawyer! Thanks again for everything you do and have done for us !

  • Absolutely the best attorney

    My first impression of Don was...Wow!! He's very intelligent, and has a incredible personality! I went into his office regarding a child support modification issue. I was highly stressed and somehow came out of his office laughing because of his humor. Anyone having to through court matters knows it is a stressful situation. Knowing that you have an honest and straight up no *BS* attorney that is fighting for you...not your money is hard to come by. I've been pleased with the quick responses back regarding my emails. You won't go wrong by hiring Don as your attorney. The best attorney in Rockford,Ill. In my opinion. I highly recommend Donald Ray!
    Very impressive!!

  • Easy way out

    Hired attorney Ray from out of town. Based my options from AVVO site.
    Attorney Ray probably fought with me more than my ex did. Poor communication skills and no follow through past the initial fight.

    Gave the impression that since my child was now under my roof (Thank you for that at least) that his job was done. Never pursued and financial records (up to date) or back child support "retroactive", to the tune of about 12 months worth.

    He let my ex bamboozle the bogus Guardian as lidam (Ally Leonard), turn in old financial reports and did not fight for proper visitation rights.

    I had heard do any wonderful things about this attorney. Unfortunately he seemed to take the easy way out.

    Donald Erwin Ray’s response: “The review does not reflect that my office was granted the right from the Judge to stop having to be Corey's attorney more than two months ago. The Order allowing me out of the case came after primary physical care and removal of the child from Illinois to California was obtained for him. This process included the fact that the Guardian Ad Litem, Attorney Alicia Leonard did her job well enough to create such result. Child support was Ordered. A final financial Order including the court's authority to grant retroactive child support was still an option when I left the case. Public court records reveal that no further action has been taken with the court to pursue what I allegedly failed to obtain for him. Retroactive support is not mandatory. After I was allowed to stop representation I transferred without charge his file to his new Attorney in California. I advised him that the current support issues must be dealt with in Illinois.”

    I hired Don Ray for my child custody case. Although there were many obstacles to over come with my case, He was great and in the end he won the case for me. He was so amazing and I would highly recommend him if your looking for a great family court attorney.

    Mr. Ray is up front and honest, but gets the job done. He explained the court process to us so that we were fully aware of the time commitment . We hired him right on the spot and he proceeded to tell us what he wanted to do and how things should go. We listened, never gave any suggestions, after all we were paying him because he knew what he was doing. We couldn't have been happier. It was not a drawn out process. Mr. Ray is an experienced lawyer that operates in the real world and is not concerned with racking up the hours, but getting the job done. Who better to hire than an experienced lawyer that hates to lose?

    Attorney Ray was a very up front and honest person. He will guide you through every step of the process and is right on cue. Atty Ray will contact you after office hours via email. He seems to go non-stop for his clients, no matter how petty your question. I found him to be a great man with genuine feelings. If you want the bang for the buck Atty. Ray was by far easy on the wallet in my case! Good Luck, hope this helped you out.

    Mr. Ray is extremely knowledgeable and is able to get through the clutter to the facts of the matter very quickly. We went to him in regards to securing grandparent rights. Although he personally was not in a position to assist us at this time, he was able to provide us with the information and steps we needed to take in order to move forward. Should we need to actually retain an attorney, he will be the one we go to.

    Atty. Donald Ray helped me resolve a tax exemption matter for me.He is a pretty straightforward and honest guy.He will tell you the "real deal" regardless of whether you want to hear it or not.At the start of the case he told me what I would be able to get and what I would not.When I had a question he did not take long in responding back to me,which is a big plus for me.He ultimately got me what I wanted and even gave me a little bit of a break on my bill.I Appreciate all of his efforts in helping me resolve my legal matters.It is hard to find lawyers out there who are honest and are not trying to take advantage of you.Nice to know there are still some remaining!!!

    Mr. Ray is very professional, honest and to the point. He will not sugar coat anything. He tells you like it is. I hired him to represent me through my divorce. His follow up is by far, above and beyond an average attorney. He kept me in the loop through the entire process and got it done quickly. This is the guy you want to hire!
