Don was able to give me peace of mind by answering and clarifying questions I had about an upcoming divorce. He gave me more information than I got from anyone else- I highly recommend him.

Went through a very rough situation with my ex and our two girls. Donato M and the rest of the staff at Goldberg & Jones were very reliant and kept me in the loop with my questions and anything else that arose. Navigating the courts and law is a stressful challenge and this office greatly helped during the course I navigated it. Would 100% recommend and will come back if I ever need to utilize their services again.
Matthew W.
I cannot speak highly enough about Don Masaoy and his willingness to help me in my time of need. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, and took the time to listen to my concerns and help me through a difficult situation. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.
Don Masaoy was great. He thinks of things most wouldn’t, and plans ahead. Soft-spoken yet firm with the other side, and I could feel the quality of my representation. I retained custody of my daughter, which is often hard for a father to accomplish in these cases. I’m glad Mr. Masaoy was in my corner during trial that’s for sure.
