“Divorce is a complex and emotional process; I realize that clients need a strong advocate with a level head who will listen attentively and allow them to vent, process and heal.”  — Esther R. Donald

Esther Donald is an excellent resource in all areas of family law and particularly accomplished in cases where children are involved. A parent and stepparent herself, she mixes her life experiences with logic, patience and persuasion to move even the most emotional cases toward a favorable and cost-effective resolution.

Esther listens closely and asks the right questions.  This helps her identify what a client really needs to accomplish and how to tackle it. Her background in commercial litigation helps maximize her client’s success in property division. And her insistence on putting the children first keeps her clients focused on the most important issues in custody disputes.  Esther’s skill set has benefited a wide range of clients — from the teenage basketball star served with a paternity case, to the stay-home mom facing an unwanted divorce, to the business executive trying to protect retirement assets.
