I am Donna Buttler, a family law attorney based in Connecticut. I understand the difficulties that arise during family legal disputes, which is why I take a team-based, holistic approach to helping resolve issues in a way that enables you to move forward with your life. With more than 20 years of legal experience, I am prepared to begin working for you
As an attorney, I have spent more than twenty years working with families in family law and child protection matters. I believe in the processes of mediation and collaborative divorce. I am a certified divorce mediator and I am committed to helping couples find the best solutions to their families needs and goals.
Model of Negotiation Emphasizing
Respect and Privacy
“The success of a Collaborative Process depends largely on the quality of the team that the attorneys put together that work in conjunction to successfully guide the clients from start to finish. We work with professionals that are not only knowledgeable but are sensitive to our clients’ needs and bring integrity to negotiation.” – Donna L. Buttler
Helping You Stay In Control
Of The Divorce Process
The mediation process provides the structure to discuss the difficult and important issues surrounding your divorce and your family. Together, we will identify your interests and needs and those of your children and develop an agreement that you are both comfortable with.
An Essential Part Of Every Divorce Process
Through successful negotiation, you can resolve your divorce case on your own terms. Even when a full resolution is not obtained, often parties can resolve some conflicts, thus limiting the extent of the litigation. “Negotiation is not about figuring out who is right or wrong. It is about getting the parties involved to recognize the other party’s perspective.” – Ann K. Newman
As A Last Resort
Some cases are appropriate for litigation. It may be because the finances are complex, the emotions are too strong or the legal issues are unique. Whatever the reason, you want the capabilities, experience, and resources of an experienced family attorney by your side, preparing your case and maximizing your results.
