Great Lawyer
There is nothing worse than getting a divorce and then having to worry about custody issues on top of it. Donna has been through my divorce and custody case, taken my calls - multiple times in a week, sometimes with me in tears, and handled everything so professionally. Not only has she been a tremendous attorney for us, we leave every appt knowing she genuinely cares about us - most importantly, she cares about the well being of my children, and I couldn't ask for more than that!

She was highly instrumental in my divorce. She made sure I got my children and got to keep my house. She keeps things simple and understandable. She took the time to answer all my questions and did not run up a huge bill. I would recommend her to anyone as a finicky lawyer.

Donna Leonard far exceeded my expectations. She is professional and at the same time compassionate and understands the situation which needs to be handled carefully and critically. The prime definition of family lawyer because she is family.

If you want an Attorney with Heart, HIRE DONNA KAY LEONARD!
Upon hiring Ms. Leonard for two sensitive family law cases, I found her to be extremely professional and an excellent attorney. She is one who not only stands by her client, but extends her heartfelt compassion as well and did not treat me like another $ sign as some attorneys tend to do. Her knowledge of family law is solid and I can personally attest to her integrity as an attorney. After going to her home office and hearing how she had to move her law practice to her home to care for her husband who was dying from cancer some years back, you can truly feel the compassion she has to care for clients who are down trodden. She kept her practice at her home for convenience after her husband passed as she is a cancer survivor herself. I was truly amazed by her story and found going to her home quite comforting as opposed to going to a pretentious law office. She won my cases for me and put a stop to the harassment I was under which spared me tremendous stress as I was undergoing chemotherapy at the time. To this day, she remains not only as my attorney, but as my friend. She truly is a Champion for those in need with a warm heart of gold and I was truly blessed to have her as my attorney.

Above and Beyond
I have nothing but high marks for Donna K. Leonard. I normally do not give 5 stars but in this particular case I will explain. I was in a very bad marriage and in dire need of an attorney. Ms Leonard came Highly recommended for her experience in family law, her compassion for the client, and unlike many attorneys Ms Leonard has a Flat Fee. Donna K. Leonard was persistent in seeking justice and fairness in my case. Ms Leonard went above and beyond on my case by keeping me updated by email and phone. Ms Leonard went the "extra mile" by writing letters in my behalf, hand walking real estate documents to the county clerks office to be filed in a timely manner. Donna K. Leonard fully represents her clients!

Excellent and most professional
I always recommend Atty. Donna Kay Leonard to anyone that has family issues: divorce, adoption, custody, modification of child support, or visitations. I have known Ms. Leonard since 2004 and for every instance that I have needed a "family law expert" it is to Ms. Donna Kay Leonard that I turn to and recommend highly. Ms. Leonard immediately gets to the problem and puts out the law references that she will apply and thus gets the case resolved. She has done excellent work in returning the children to the proper parent; has been able to modify the child support to where it is fair; the children that needed her defense are safe and in a good loving home with caring parents; I just cannot say enough good results for Ms. Leonard, I am so glad that I met her and besides being an excellent attorney, she makes the very best friend you would like to be associated with!!!!!

One meeting so far and already the stress level has decreased dramatically
My daughter and I have had only 1 meeting with Ms Leonard so far. She put us ease immediately. She is extremely professional. The information we have so far showed me she is very knowledgable. She's taking on a case with very short notice for court and, yet, we feel extremely relieved about the outcome. My granddaughter was snatched by her father and has denied visitation for 4 months for her mother for 4 months now. Dear God, bless this woman and help my long suffering daughter.

Horrible lawyer
She never answeres he phone calls. And when you do talk to her she rushes you off the phone. She wants me to be ok with sending my son with her mom when she just got kicked out of 2 rehabs. If I would have read the below posts I would have never hired her. I paid her $3000 and all she did was come up with excuses as to why we cants go to court. Been waiting to go to court for 4 months now. If anyone knows a good lawyer let me know because it’s not her.

Response from Donna Leonard December 26, 2017
Note that the date of this review is Christmas Eve...Some people crave attention ONLY when it is least convenient for everyone else. When a client goes out of his or her way to sabotage his or her own case, decides ON A HOLIDAY not to honor an agreement so HE can create drama, then pitch a fit when the attorney is compelled to withdraw, it is beyond pathetic and sad.

Quality isn't cheap; cheap isn't quality.
If you know nothing about the law, do NOT hire her; if you do know something about law, do NOT hire her! You will be greeted at her house door, not office with "Shut up Daisy, Shut Up!" . Daisy is her dog. There is no office outside her home office; and no other employees, i.e. attorneys or staff to assist despite her advertisement referring to "we". If you do hire her, document everything! My phone calls were not returned in a timely manner, my legal documents were not prepared in a timely manner.

Response from Donna Leonard July 2, 2017
As I always tell my clients, people don't like to lose. Those who do lose against me will stoop to ANY level to try to hurt me, but my reputation via my satisfied clients (who refer their friends and family to me) prevents such garbage from sticking... You should be ashamed of yourself for even trying this tactic... How desperate are you??
