"As a family law attorney, I bring compassion and empathy to the practice of law in order to help find the best solutions to our clients' issues.  Sometimes that requires aggressive advocacy, and other times problems are best solved through collegial negotiations.  It is my objective to gently guide you through this stressful process to a positive outcome. At Donna Ambler Davis, P.C. we know that every family has different needs, and we look forward to providing you with an individualized and creative solution that best fits the dynamics of your family."
