Patrick

Elisabeth Donovan is a fantastic family law attorney. She helped me with my case to obtain full custody of my son, who was then five. Being a father, trying to obtain full custody of his child, Elisabeth was up against the odds in my case. She asked all the right questions, gathered the right information, and proceeded in court to help the judge see and understood that the best course of action, for my son’s sake, was to be awarded to me. She was patient with the court system, helped me learn to be patient as well, and to get to the bottom line. Elisabeth is very friendly, caring and knows that the child’s interest is the most important aspect of every case. I have referred her other cases, and will continue to do so for as long as she practices law. I owe her a debt of gratitude for her ability to help me obtain full custody of my son. Forever grateful.

Robert

Elisabeth Donovan works hard and respectfully for each unique situation, and affordability was a plus. I am thankful for her and her ability to make you a priority. It is so stressful enough as it is going through family court issues. Elisabeth put me at ease, she is very intelligent and I could tell by her knowledge that I could trust her completely. I was extremely pleased, even if the case hadn’t gone completely in my favor, I would have known that Elisabeth did the best that was possible.
