I contacted Mr. Ray after reading reviews on AVVO. I had retained another attorney prior and all I can say is, it was not a good choice. I changed counsel shortly after my divorce started and it was the best decision I could have made.
Mr. Ray exceeded my expectations. When he stepped in as my counsel my worries regarding how things would turn out stopped. He took the time to explain everything in detail and the potential outcomes and consequences of each decision. I appreciated the fact he sugar coated nothing, he is extremely straight forward, diligent, and honest. His vast knowledge base and attention to detail were shining bright during the trail part of my divorce. Mr. Ray handles opposing counsel with ease and confidence. There were many times during my divorce I said to myself, wow I am so thankful I have him on my side. My ex tried to hide cohabitation during our divorce, she went to great measures to keep it hidden, Mr. Ray brought it all out and forward, I am so thankful that he took the time to dig, he looked out for me and my future and I am forever grateful.
There was never a time I was left wondering. Mr. Ray is VERY easily contacted through phone, email, or dropping by the office (if he is not in court). My divorce took a little over 2 years and there was NEVER one time I had to wait for an answer. He kept me in the loop the entire time. I never felt over charged, actually when I got my final bill, I said to myself “that’s all? “ He is more than fair with his fees. I would have gladly paid more, because in the end Mr. Ray exceeded my expectations!!!!! He is definitely a lawyer you want fighting for you!!
Thank you Mr. Ray

As a former client of Donald Ray it was important to me to have legal representation that would fight for me and my children and have my back in the complicated arena of family and divorce court. No detail was left unnoticed and no box left unchecked with the result being that I can sleep soundly knowing my children are safe. With his straightforward advice, fair rates and professionalism I would recommend Donald to anyone in need of legal counsel.

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 !

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!

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.

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.
