Our attorneys handle all aspects of domestic practice including high-income divorces, complicated marital estates, custody, adoptions, relationship agreements and cases in juvenile and district court. Our family law team is comprised of highly-qualified, experienced attorneys and staff.  We are recognized locally and nationally for our excellence and expertise. Several of our firm’s partners are fellows in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, one of the most prestigious groups of practitioners in the family law field.

Our attorneys are passionate about family law and practice exclusively in this legal arena. We choose to be family lawyers because we care about the unique needs of our clients and their families. We understand that family law matters involve complex relationships and require zealous but compassionate legal representation. We aim to minimize harm to families while producing longstanding solutions, tailored to each client’s specific case.

Dart Adamson & Donovan attorneys stay up-to-date with Utah’s constantly evolving body of family laws and many other areas relevant to the practice of Family law in order to offer our clients well-informed representation. Additionally, our attorneys have years of experience with both mediation and trial work, so no matter your situation, we can support you adequately and with the utmost confidentiality, empathy, and respect.

Our firm has been at the forefront of the Collaborative practice movement in Utah since it’s beginning and several of our attorneys currently sit on the board of the Utah Association of Collaborative Professionals.
