Compassionate & professional expertise
Dona was the perfect mediator for our situation. She was compassionate and focused, and met our budget by keeping us on task. We appreciated Dona's drive to maintain respect during the process, even beyond the walls of her office, and she led us through a very insightful exercise which had us identify our own goals for the divorce. She was recommended to us by another couple who had nothing but good things to say about her, and we in turn have recommended her to a couple couples since.

Difficult times
Divorce is difficult, complicated, emotional, terrifying and draining. Dona made the process tolerable and understanding. She was patient and extremely helpful in assisting us to complete this difficult process in an efficient manner. She help us to be accountable but was patient and kind through the process. The court system is complicated and intimidating. Dona made the mediation process simple and straight forward. I would highly recommend her to anyone facing divorce.

Collaborative Divorce
It is never a pleasant experience to hire a lawyer with divorce as the end result. Dona was the person I needed on my side as my husband and I navigated a peaceful way to terminate our marriage. Dona provided wise counsel as well as plain, sound advice and connected me with the resources I needed to move forward as painlessly as possible until the divorce was final and I was on my way to a new life. We worked closely together for many months and I learned how committed Dona is to peaceful mediation, and her methods helped me understand that there was actual healing that could be gained through the path of mediation. I am now several years past most of the pain and I am so grateful for Dona's prompting and encouragement to pursue many avenues for finding healing and starting over. I hired her for legal work and found just what I needed to survive one of the most difficult moments in my life. I was very satisfied with her legal performance, and very blessed by her calm and encouraging manner.
