Donna L. Buttler is located in the Farmington Valley and focuses her practice on Family Law including divorce, custody and parenting plans, child support, restraining orders, and prenuptial agreements. Her practice incorporates many tools to successfully advocate for her clients. She is an experienced litigator who has conducted trials for 25 years in the state courts and is knowledgeable of the decisions of the judges.
