I retained Sherri as my divorce attorney about two years ago. She came highly recommended and did not disappoint.
Sherri is the consummate professional. She is smart, experienced and passionate about her work. Specifically, Sherri was extremely involved in every aspect of my rather acrimonious and complicated divorce.
I would recommend Sherri Donovan without hesitation.
You are an angel sent from God. I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for me and Sophie. You fought for us as if you were representing your own family member. You genuinely cared for Sophie and fought for her each and every time. Thank you so much for guiding me throughout this ordeal. You were patient, honest, knowledgeable and responsible. You immediately responded to my emails and calls, even the 2AM emails! I remember calling you around Christmas time and the 4th of Julyand you still answered my calls. You always explained all possible outcomes; however, you always seemed to be 10 steps ahead of everything and everyone! You approached every problem that arose from all angles and advised me accordingly. When curveballs when we’re thrown in court you knew how to respond to them. You were always prepared and remembered every detail to my case. You made me feel as if I was your only client. I thank God for guiding me right to you.
Sherri was my anchor during my stormy divorce. She was always there for me, held my hand. Sherri is most compassionate and level-headed.

I was involved in a domestic violence and sexually abusive marriage for 22 years. I have four children. I stayed and suffered, I was confused and fearful without direction until I met Sherri Donovan at the NOW clinic. Ms. Donovan is one the best attorneys that anyone would love to have. Sherri is a great lioness that does not back out of any case. She will fight with all she’s got to provide you with excellent services in the court. Ms. Donovan is a very good listener and compassionate.

Ms. Donovan is the Best!
Because of Ms. Donovan I now have a good relationship with my daughter, seeing her and skyping with her regularly. This would not have happened without Ms. Donovan’s expertise and care. Thank you!
Sherri handled my recent divorce. A mutual acquaintance recommended her and described her as “incredibly compassionate”. Sherri is not only incredibly compassionate; she is smart, honest and diligently advocated on my behalf. Most importantly, I trusted her. I would recommend her without hesitation.

She was with me every step of the way
Sherri is an attorney who cared about the outcome of my case. She guided me throughout this very difficult process and was with me through every step of the process.
Top New York City divorce attorney.
In June 2011, I retained the services of an attorney to take care of my divorce. June 2013 I was getting absolutely nowhere with this firm. I remembered writing down a telephone number I heard on the radio for an attorney about 2 years earlier. I called the number and got Sherri Donavan’s office. I set an appointment and went to her office. All my questions answered then. Her assisting attorney and para legal were absolutely amazing. They took my case on June 6, 2013 and my divorce was finalized 7 months later. I am highly recommending this great team of professionals to anyone who requires an excellent divorce law firm.
Accomplished what others couldn’t
I asked Sherri Donovan to step in after having completed divorce procedings and to assist with a modification that my Ex was balking at. After needing 5 years to settle originally, i was shocked to see how quickly Sherri was able to focus both parties on only the relevant issues, separating us physically when negotiation devolved, and bringing us finally to resolution with only two court visits over four months. Because of her even-handed approach, Sherri made both parties feel attended to, and i credit her with not only helping me lower my monthly child support payments but also with improving the day-to-day dialogue between me and my children’s father. Sherri unquestionably represented my best interests, but did so in a manner that allowed my Ex to understand that agreeing to new terms did not mean he was accepting defeat.
I would recommend Sherri Donovan without hesitation.
Caring and Loyal
I came to Sherri Donovan with a unique divorce case. Sherri and her associate attorney, Meredith Singer, did everything in their power to make me feel at ease and we won the case. As most cases, it is full of legal documents and the process can feel incredibly informal and cold. At Sherri Donovan and Associates, I felt as if I was part of a family. Every stress was reassured by the warm kind words from Sherri. Her intelligence and knowledge of the field was a comfort to me, as someone who has never dealt with any legal matter prior. Her right hand woman, Meredith, was constantly available to answer every question I had and offer personal advice. I had two strong women, who dotted every “I” and crossed every “T” on every document and went to combat for me in a peaceful yet assertive manner.
Like a Mama to me – my guardian angel
I was so confused and overwhelmed. Sherri Donovan put my whole family situation in order.
She also calmed me down and was truly caring towards me and my daughter.
Trustworthy lawyer, with reasonable fees, very thorough
Sherri Donovan, has been a tremendous help to me during my divorce. She gave expert and wise advice that protected me with my children and finances. She was a pleasure to work with during this difficult period.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sherri through a friend who was going through a divorce. Sherri is a brilliant, kind personable and undestanding attorney. If you are looking for someone who is looking for your best interest and willing to listen to your needs and worries during a difficult situation, Sherri is the right attorney for you.
Ms. Donovan was instrumental in helping me establish my new life. Sherri did two divorces for me `and a prenuptial agreement. My children were well provided for with as little litigation as possible. I am forever grateful.

Going through a divorce and fighting for custody of your child is no easy task. But it was for me. Having Sherri as my lawyer, and my backbone was the best choice I made. She took the stress away and put confidence back in my life. She got me everything I wanted which was residential custody of my daughter and to be able to relocate with her. Not only is Sherri top notch but so are her paralegals. If Sherri is not available to talk they are very knowledge and can answer every question. You can ask them 101 questions and they will answer each one with out getting frustrated. I love the whole team and would highly recommend them. Do not pay attention to the other reviews for they hold no weight. Look no further…..Sherri Donavon and associates are the very best.

she protected my daughter and I will always be grateful to her
Sherri is very smart, insightful and highly knowledgeable. She will fight tenanciously for her client and I can’t recommend her highly enough.
A True Ally
Sherri Donovan was smart, compassionate and generous in representing me during my divorce. She answered my initial call to her cell phone within one hour of reaching out to her. Every step of the way from the first consultation to finalizing my papers she was supportive, sharp and efficient. Her staff was incredible as well and always on top of it and responsive. I have recommended her to close friends and will continue to refer people to her in being a true ally during one of the most difficult processes you can go through.
Sherri is very professional in all the work she does. She is dedicated to helping families going through the divorce process and is very experienced and knowledgeable in regards to issues of children with special needs.
I had the great privilege of hiring Sherri Donovan as my divorce mediator. I say privilege because it is not every day one finds a caring, compassionate and expert professional in an emotionally devastating time. I wanted a fair settlement honoring myself and the years spent with my husband. She was extremely knowledgeable, concise, explained everything clearly and didn’t waste time. She’s also a skilled negotiator. Going well beyond the call of duty, she accommodated our international schedules. Divorce is not easy, but she made it bearable and I am happy with the outcome. As far as my ex-husband’s viewpoint, well, you’d have to ask him.
No better lawyer
I was in an abusive marriage and had one daughter from that marriage. What made my case so difficult was that I was from another state and wanted to relocate back to that state with my daughter. I thought it would be impossible to leave NY with my daughter until I meant Sherri. She got me right on track and developed a safe plan for my daughter and I to make a safe exit. I have residential custody of my daughter and I am back living in my home state…..Sherri got me everything I asked for and more. She was much more then a lawyer she was a mother, a friend, and an Angel.
