Amazing Attorney and Staff! Do you need a Pit Bull to fight for you?
I went in for a consultation but definitely will go back and hire Donn. He’s knowledge is out of this world! he listened to everything I had to say, and trust me, I had way to much to say and so many questions lol. He’s Not like you're typical money hungry attorneys that give you a free 5 min consultation don’t answer your questions, don’t care about you, and only see you as as a dollar sign then they pressure you to hire them. I wanted to interview a couple more attorneys before making my decision but I definitely came back. Special thanks to Jessica she’s amazing! she has a great personality and you can hear even over the phone how much she loves her job. She answered a few questions with out giving me legal advice. Definitely the best first impression counts! And she’s by far exceptional. She went far and beyond to help me.She called me too come in sooner than my original scheduled appointment. Since she had a cancellation not something I expected or ask for but that was just amazing customer service. When I entered the office she immediately greeted me with a beautiful smile and I find that very important it shows they appreciate your business. After speaking to Donn and Jessica I have made up my mind and definitely hired him. Donn’s experience is exactly what I was looking for! I consider my self lucky for finding Donn to be my attorney. Thank you Donn and Jessica you guys rock!!

Exceptional service and devoted attorney!
It has been a long four years of my ex-husband trying to circumvent the law. Donn remained steadfast in representing me. He's not a money-hungry attorney and not just represents but also counsels, which I truly needed. Even with the changes in employees and unforeseen circumstances, we both never gave up. I appreciate all he's done to get me through the hardest time of my life! I would highly recommend Donn for a divorce attorney!!

Caring, Professional and GOOD!
Donn and his staff are amazing. They are very detail oriented. They genuinely care about your situation and take the time to make sure they understand all that needs accomplished. Then he just does it! He goes to court and is a straight shooter and gets it done. He has won two different, long drawn out, exhaustive court cases for us. You won’t regret hiring him.

Utterly Amazing
Donn and his staff were amazing. The case that I had was not typical and against the state, CPS and DFS. I feared that with how I was being out right fictitiously steam rolled by the system there would be no way I would ever see my child again. Donn got it done! I am reunited with my little one and she is safe happy and glad to be home! Him and his staff talk to you and let you know what is going on; which is unlike any other attorney. I have also recommended him to friends and they are just as happy!

Excellent lawyer
Definitely a professional and trained lawyer. The achievement finally came after 8 years of uncertainty. It has been accentuated on paper the safety of my children. For the last 3 years, their biological father began to sue me. After frustrating experiences with another lawyer, I managed to contact Donn and his excellent paralegal Alex. From the first moment I spoke with them, they understood the needs of my family and helped me cope with. They prepared my case as if they themselves were the ones suffering the exhausting and frustrating trouble of being demanded. Thank you both and all the members of the firm of Donn W Prokopius.If you really need an honest, intelligent and professional lawyer, Donn is the one.

Someone you can Trust!!!
Bravo!!! Very pleased with service. After going through 3 other attorneys here in Las Vegas for my divorce, I wasn't sure I had faith in the people that support the judicial system. Donn Prokopius, came through for me with everything he said he would do. He listened to my concerns, gave advice even when I wouldn't be pleased with out come/ very blunt. He looked out for the best interest of me and my children. Highly recommended! Kudos to Donn Prokopius and his staff! This group of people work well together.

Excellent!
Donn represented me in my divorce and custody case. The results were better than I expected. I'm now working with Donn to renegotiate our custody agreement as our current arrangement has become too messy for my children during the school week. Donn is a true partner - he listens and understands my concerns, but sets reasonable expectations. It's comforting to know that I have Donn in my corner looking out for the best interests of my children.

Excellent Lawyer
I was referred to Donn Prokopius by a co-worker. I needed a lawyer last minute and Donn found time to fit me in the very next day. From the point I retained him, Donn and his staff stayed on top of everything. Any questions or concerns i had, they were answered within the day. I will be recommending Donn and his staff to anyone that is looking for a dependable lawyer.

Family Lawyer
At the onset, during my first meeting in his office, on a rainy day this past April, Donn made me feel comfortable with my stand against the other party's petition to be granted general guardianship of my children. The disheartening element, in this particular life event, was that it happened to be my parents who were petitioners. The case never went to trial. I was able to prove my worth as a mother and as a parent well before it was necessary to get a trial date. My parents backed out of going forward. All throughout 35 the toughest days of my life that was wrought with disbelief, anguish, stress, the hard feeling of betrayal, to joyous Elementary school events, working full time as an assistant, working full time as a mother of three wonderful children... Donn eased my worries, reassured me of what I already knew to be true, and gave me the best advice I could have been given when I needed it most. He came to my attention highly recommended, and I am passing that on to you.

Wonderfully satisfied!
Donn and his team assisted my husband and I with a termination of parental rights case and step parent adoption. Everyone in the office is very kind and considerate. Starting with day one he was very thorough, explaining everything so there was no confusion. He has always made us feel confident in our case and what the end results would be. Donn is a very compassionate and understanding as well, which was very important during an emotional case like this. I am beyond satisfied with the work of him and his team.

Very Good Lawyer!
I had been hesitant to file for divorce for a very long time but Donn made the process a lot easier and faster than what I expected. I thought that my divorce and custody battle would take a long time, but Donn's legal expertise, guidance, and efficient communication, he was able to obtain the results I expected. I felt that Donn and his staff always communicated with me diligently and always knew precisely the progress of my case. I strongly recommend Donn for any divorce and custody issues you may have.

Most helpful & trustworthy
After 2 other lawyer's he was the best one. He was able to win the case we were fighting for years in just months. I recommend him to anyone who needs family law with kids involved.

Custody Case
Donn Prokopius represented us in our custody case for our oldest daughter. He came highly recommended from a close friend of mine that had been in a custody suit for over a year. She explained to me that as difficult and time consuming the process was that Donn was professional and worked hard on her case. She was absolutely correct. I have to say I called several attorney's before I finally called Donn. I spoke with supposedly one of the top custody attorney's in town ( I was told) that came with a high price. I did not like the way she spoke about my case as far as what she was willing to do. I wanted the court to decide on facts where my daughter would be best placed, I believe it was with me. I did not want someone who would lack integrity, professionalism and common decency. I didn't want my daughter in the future when she was older to go back and see that I had said and done things that was dishonoring to her father and in turn cause her hurt. I wanted to ensure that my daughter would appreciate that her father was treated with respect. I will be forever grateful to Donn on how he handled our case. He was always up front on the possibilities of different scenario's. He always returned my calls and he always kept me up to date on our progress. His fee was reasonable and fair. I can't say enough positive things about his team. It would still do no justice to how amazing, quick, professional his team is. I have worked in real estate for a good of 10 years in the past and I had learned quickly never to refer anyone to an attorney. That has changed. I have refereed friends to Donn and no doubt if any of my family members need counsel it would be Donn if I have any say in it. This process is daunting for sure. I don't think there is anything more difficult than a custody dispute. At least in my life I have not experienced anything more trying. Thank you Donn, Jodi, Alex and Tom for helping my family get through this and bringing to light the facts and truths about this case and keeping my daughter with us, securing her safety! God bless!

Highest of Recomended Representation
Donn Prokopius is a fantastic Attorney who had my best interest at heart. I have been through two other lawyers who I trusted to represent me and fell miserably short. Thousads of dollars later, I learned that it was sort of a crap shoot to hire an attorney that would do a good job. I wish that I had found Mr. Donn Prokopius from the beginning. My experience has been nothing but brilliant. I have never had to find a lawyer before, so I didn't how to go about it. That being said, after going through two other lawyers, I finally found my trophy attorney, Mr. Donn Prokopius. This was my experience with his law firm and specifically with him... I found him through the internet and I had called his office to inquire upon his services. My phone call was very pleasant and polite. I had a phone appointment set up for a call back. Donn Prokopius called me back spending at least an hour on the phone with me getting to know me and the type of case I had; which was a divorce case. I was happy to hear that he accepted me as his client and on short notice leaving me feeling confident I had made the right choice. He charged me a flat fee to represent me which caused me to fell even more confident in his abilities. In contrast, the other two lawyers kept charging me with every single interaction I had as well as court appearances which they kept moving for continuances and case management hearings NOT TRIAL! THUS, More billing of $3000.00 or more each time. Donn Prokopius is a no nonsense Attorney who is a champion in getting the job done. I cant tell you how much passion, enthusiasm, aggressiveness, and ingenuity he exhibited. He, by no means, was easy prey but on the contrary a hard target, a line in the sand a protector of his clients nor could he be intimidated in any way shape of form. In our deliberations, Mr. Prokopius commanded the room with a very compelling presence using his persuasive verbal talents and influential body language. Mr. Prokopius is a winner hands down and he is very good at it. There isn't a recommendation high enough that could even begin to touch on, "My Attorney's" skills. If you need an exceptional fighter I would definitely recommend Donn Prokopius to be your PIT BULL!! Donn Prokopius reflects enormous credit on himself, his practice, and the legal system. Thank You Sir for protecting my interests. OUTSTANDING!

Smart Decision
I retained Donn for my divorce/custody case. I interviewed multiple attorneys before I decided that Donn was the best for me. During the free consultation I observed a calm, yet very confident attorney. Like all the other attorneys, he explained my options and discussed his willingness to take the case to trial. He was straight to the point and did not provide "fluff". I was unable to pay the full retainer and was placed on a fair payment plan. Without his acceptance of my plan, I would have had to go to another firm. The opposition had many demands of me financially and Donn developed a "package" plan to present to her attorney to get her off of my retirement . From the beginning, I informed Donn that I was willing to negotiate with her to keep 100% of my retirement and that she keep 100% of her retirement. (If you don't know...Nevada is a community property state.) After multiple attorney meetings, Donn proctored the best plan for me and I didn't have to go to trial. I got everything I wanted (well...just about...the support law is what it is) and Donn saved me time and money by not having to go to trial. I highly recommend him as I have to several friends in Las Vegas.

Law Offices of Prokopius & Beasley
I retained the firm of Prokopius & Beasley in 2011 in the midst of an extremely difficult divorce. I have had the opportunity to be served by both Donn & Jeremy. In the last two years the bulk of appearances and motions have been handled by Jeremy with more heart, conviction and professionalism than I thought could be reasonably expected in their field! Fortunately for me, this painful journey has been navigated with skill and compassion by both Donn & Jeremy. I would and have highly recommended this firm!

Negligent
Donn was negligent and totally disengaged and unprepared for my case. He did not even bring paperwork & files to refer to in Court - and had to ask me for info as he fumbled with his tech notepad. His asst. Alex lost my files, lied to me about having filed Papers with court on time and repeategly was inept. Very unprofessional staff and dirty office. Complete failure.

Failure
He was the second attorney in my child custody case. I fired him because despite the fact that he received paperwork from the opposing party, he didn't even feel the need to call me. When he showed up at the hearing, I informed the judge that I had fired him. He knew he was wrong, but did nothing to make it right and I was forced to move 1500 miles away to maintain joint custody of my son with his abusive father.
