Donna Buttler practices collaborative law and mediation to serve her family law and matrimonial clients in Hartford and Litchfield counties and the surrounding areas.
Donna uses over 20 years of experience to be a strong advocate for her clients, while helping couples resolve their conflicts without court intervention.

Whether complex or straightforward settlements are needed, Donna ensures that the process is conducted in privacy and with compassion.

Sheldon, Donna entered solo practice in 1997 and formed the current firm with offices in Bloomfield, Granby and Farmington in 2010.
