We had a complicated contested adoption case. Doug was instrumental in not only winning our case, but winning it decisively and without a single person on our side even having to testify. He was fully invested in our outcome and went to great lengths to study all the exhibits (there was over 3000 pages of texts) to strengthen our case. He was communicative and extremely supportive to us during this stressful time but most importantly he was the most qualified and experienced attorney with the adoption laws in our state. We could not have been more pleased with his competence and communication. If you are in the midst of a contested adoption, this is the man you want to have on your side.

While possibly more expensive than some adoption attorneys, in this case, you get what you pay for. Doug Donnelly knows pretty much everything there is to know about adoption and will not need to bill you for hours spent doing research. He made our somewhat complicated adoption as smooth as possible and we are forever grateful for his services!

We were so please with our choice in hiring Doug as our representative in obtaining guardianship. In such a sensitive and emotional time in our lives, Doug provided us with comfort though his thorough, intelligent, confident and well thought out responses. We were consistently impressed with his level of experience and integrity.

I have had the pleasure, in my capacity as a 16 term President of the Academy of California Adoption Lawyers to work with Doug both as a colleague in the Academy and in collaborative adoption cases where he has represented a birth parent and I have represented the adoptive parents and vice versa. I have consistently found him to be kind, responsible, intelligent, and very competent. He is an excellent adoption attorney.
