Smart, experienced and confident”

“I felt comfortable at the first meeting. Her experience and knowledge were obvious. Donna was my no nonsense advocate.”


“Attorney Buttler successfully brought to complete and final closure a very lengthy and complex family court case that I mistakenly thought had been “closed” many years ago (by a different attorney). I am extremely grateful to Donna for her expert knowledge, skills and guidance that she brought to bear on my behalf to accomplish what I was starting to think was impossible; namely, making sure I would never find myself back in Family court again! Thank you, Donna!”


“I worked with Donna on a difficult divorce settlement adjustment over a 6 month period of time and she was able to structure a revised agreement that at times I didn’t believe was going to be possible to obtain. She was able to accomplish a task that my previous attorney wasn’t able to. She was professional in her presentations along with being creative in thought to broker a deal. Communication took place day/night and sometimes even on weekends. If you are looking for someone that is diligent on your behalf I would highly recommend reaching out to her”


“Donna Buttler represented me in a high conflict divorce. Throughout the divorce process she demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and ethics. Donna Buttler is a knowledgeable, experienced, confident, and determined attorney. She fiercely fought for my interests and the outcome exceeded all expectations.

If you are looking for a family law attorney do not hesitate to retain Donna Buttler. She will not disappoint you!”
