Donna Genovese

– “Matrimonial attorney Donna Genovese is top notch.
She has represented and continues to represent me through a most difficult time.
Donna is personable, accessible and easy to talk to, always receptive to suggestions and ideas. Intelligent, she is a quick study, who swiftly grasps the issues at hand and timely and effectively does what needs to be done on my case.
She not only displays professionalism but a unique temperament with genuine concern for and sensitivity to her client and her case.
Whether in or out of Court, she comes across as professional, prepared, firm and assertive yet also sensitive and not overbearing. Never arrogant, dismissive, disrespectful or frivolous, she quickly fields those kinds of actions in others with composure, wit and aplomb.
In sum, Ms. Genovese continues to have my commendation and recommendation.”
– “I was referred to Donna Genovese, from Goldschmidt & Genovese Firm, to assist me during my divorce. It was a very uncertain and difficult time in my life, I truly appreciate having had Donna as my legal counsel. With her expert legal guidance she helped me navigate through complicated and emotionally charged times. Mrs. Genovese was very knowledgeable and very professional, while showing a great amount of patience and support. Very happy today with the legal and financial outcome of my case. I highly recommend her.”

Kathleen Donelli

– “I want to thank you both so very much for your concern and professionalism during one of the most disturbing and emotional times of my life. Knowing that you were on my side made all of the difference… and made it possible for me to believe that, in the end, things would be ok. I also want to apologize for my outbursts and anger. Having represented clients for many years, I never really understood the emotional impact… until now. Kathleen… your straight forwardness was priceless and telling me to “take a deep breath” was right on point… and probably prevented several nightmare scenarios. Further, having to deal with opposing counsel such as the one in this case, must have been very trying, but you did it with grace and never stooped to that level. I am very thankful for that. Kristen, your brightness, calm presence and hard work on all of the documents always made me feel as though I was being heard and that you would leave no stone unturned. You have no idea how happy I am that you worked with me on this. With a personality like mine, working with you made a huge difference. I think you are both awesome, super bright, and truly caring women and I am so very thankful that you were on my side. You make a wonderful team!”
– “I send my personal appreciation to you for your fine, attentive staff and for the extraordinarily competent, caring, and effective way you related with the client in our visit with Kathleen Donelli yesterday. I was moved by your clear focus and the ways you asked questions; showed your care through your eye contact and body language; constantly made sure the client knew her rights, the processes, and your interest in the client and her welfare throughout the meeting; communicated with dignity and respect; and through it all enabled the client to be more clearly communicative… I wish I had had a video of the interview – it would make a great teaching tool for others in the helping professions not only to see how we all can most effectively relate with others, but also as one piece of evidence on how so completely connecting just might bring more healing and health to those we serve. Thank you for what you do and for how you carry out a significant part of your professional work.
– “I am writing this email to express my admiration for the outstanding teamwork that was evident on Wednesday at the deposition. As I mentioned earlier, I have never had any experience with lawyers and the courts but from what I saw on Wednesday, I must say I was ‘blown away’ by your handling of the issues. Kathleen, you were amazingly astute and incisive in your questions and follow-ups. I felt you made my case as effectively as possible and no matter what the outcome, I feel that I have had outstanding professional support and consequently am comforted in this stressful situation. Thanks.”
