Sherri Donovan & Associates


"I want to thank you for everything you have done. I am proud to have you as my attorney and friend. There should be more Sherri Donovans in the world."

  My deepest regards,
  Sara A.

"Sherri, I have no words to express how happy and joyful I am to know someone like you! Your positive vibes and attitude is something I needed the most to move on and look forward in life. Thanks for all you have done for you to re-unite a Mother and Daughter!"


"Dear Sherri, you are such a wonderful person and soul, which makes you a brilliant lawyer. I could not have gotten through this without you. I needed your gentle hugs and your firm guidance to help keep me focused on the big picture and not get caught up in the whirlwind of blame, righteousness, and other self serving unsavory qualities a custody case brings out. I've learned a great deal from you and I'm thankful to have gotten to know you. You really do save families and make the world a better place for kids and for your clients. Thanks again, Christine."


"Sherri is very smart, insightful and highly knowledgeable. She will fight tenaciously for her client and I can't recommend her highly enough."


"Sherri was my anchor during my stormy divorce. She was always there for me, held my hand. Sherri is most compassionate and level-headed."

"Because of Ms. Donovan I now have a good relationship with my daughter. This would not have happened without Ms. Donovan's expertise and care. Thank 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."

"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."


"I asked Sherri Donovan to step in after having completed divorce proceedings 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.


"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 than a lawyer she was a mother, a friend, and an Angel."


"You are my hero."

   -Annette H.

" 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. I can always count on her at any time. Sherri helped me break out of my shackles. I was on the verge of depression and suicidal before I was rescued by Sherri Donovan. Today, I am glad to say that I am a different person and I have taken good control of my life. I am able to provide for my children with a stable home environment. I strongly recommend Sherri to anyone who needs an effective, reliable and knowledgeable matrimonial attorney"


" In the time when I needed an attorney and a friend I found both in Sherri. Thanks to her wisdom, her ability to know when to fight and when to let go. Helped me to always stay true to myself. Today I live a happy life with order, not having to worry what will happen next month."


" I met Sherri Donovan at a very difficult time: my marriage of almost thirty years had collapsed and I was fighting not only the opposing counsel but the lawyer who represented me as well. I was lucky, things changed as soon as Sherri took over. A passionate attorney, she used her deep knowledge of the law, her great professional skills, and her formidable powers as a negotiator to settle my case in a nick of time, something that had eluded me for years. What impressed me most, though, was Sherri’s ability to humanize her cases. I was not only a client, I was a friend who needed a helping hand. Thank you, Sherri. I will always be grateful for your help, support and understanding and I will always treasure our friendships."


"I send this to thank you for all your help with this eight-year horror story. Having gone through three previous cases... and three previous lawyers who had no interest in representing me, you are the first REAL lawyer who changed my eight-year horror story into a story with a great ending. You did in a couple of months what no one else could in eight years. I can't thank you enough for being there for me when I really needed your help. You have a passion for what you do [and] that makes you the best at it. You also care about representing your clients. [During my] three previous cases with the plaintiff, I constantly went to court and listened to other lawyers talk to their clients and talk to other lawyers. After that experience in court, I can say without question, you are the best matrimonial lawyer in New York State. I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone who needs a matrimonial lawyer. The bottom line is you saved my life... You were able to get a settlement very quickly that was in my best interests. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you."

" Sherri understood that I love my kids and that I wanted the best possible settlement for both them and me. She fought hard and I am very satisfied with the results."


"It was a great day in Court yesterday! Like I said, I felt like I was watching Venus & Serena Williams power it out on the court--and my ex was the ball! Thanks for being you and doing what you do so well."

"Document looked amazing. That Sherri is a goddess!! Thank you."

- Amy

"Thank you for your diligence and support throughout my divorce case. After unsuccessfully working with a divorce mediator for a few months I am grateful that I was referred to you by the Coalition of Justice for Women. I had been feeling hopeless about my short-term marriage situation and your assertive representation and experience gave me an immediate sense of freedom and confidence that I had lost. Not to mention, the great success you had in closing a complicated divorce agreement. Given my short-term marriage, I feel the settlement you won on my behalf was substantial and gave me financial security as well as the confidence to move on with my life. I have already referred two friends of mine to you and they are experiencing a similar sense of security in your legal representation."

   - Veronica

"Sherri, you went all out and the results were outstanding! ...I still can't believe... that you were able to get me out of there. I know that was and is a lot of hard work on your part. I truly appreciate everything you have done and everything you are doing. I'd probably still be rotting in that jail if it hadn't been for you. Thank you so much."

   - Dana

"We got our license on Wednesday and our wedding is going ahead on Sunday. I know everyone really worked hard to make this happen and we are really happy. Thank you!"

   - Peggy & Myron

"I want to express... how much I admire you. You are compassionate, patient, kind, understanding-and above all, very smart. You are a real role model for me. Thank you for your excellent expert advice. I truly feel the day I met you was one of the luckiest I and my family have had in a long time."

"Today has honestly been a wonderful and educationally fulfilling day. Because of your generosity to help me get a better understanding of the law, my eyes have now opened to the many aspects that the law has to offer. Today was just an amazing day, and I just cannot believe the incredible experience I had which is all thanks to you. You are a phenomenal lawyer and it was truly an honor to have been your "shadow" for today and hopefully in the future. I would end this with "best of luck", but you've already succeeded in your career. Yours truly, Amber"
