Pamela J.P. Donison
Attorney, Mediator, Collaborator, Big Thinker
I’m not THAT kind of attorney. You see, I don’t think the legal system works very well for families. I might be a dreamer, but I believe that families can – and should – solve their problems in a way that preserves family relationships, anticipates the future, and creates a safety net for all the “what ifs” that keep you up at night.
When a life event happens, I want to be there to help you plan ahead, make smart choices, and hit the pillow knowing that your life event legal issues are taken care of.
The thing about families is that we all come from one. Even though our histories might be very different, most of us have experienced the joy of a marriage, a new baby, first days of school, leaving for college, walking a child down the aisle, and greeting a new grandbaby. Most of us have also had to shoulder life’s sorrows, including divorce, illness, and death. Like some of you, I am in a long term second marriage and blended family, where we count ourselves fortunate to have shared many moments of joy, and are humbled by our own family tragedies and pain.
I look at all of these life events and wonder, how can I make it better, simpler, less painful, more transformative, and safer for everyone? That’s what drives me to do my best work, talk to you about important issues, help you plan for your very best outcomes, and guide you in creating the legacy you intend for your family.
