Why Choose Donna Ambler Davis, PC?

Your choice of an attorney is going to make a significant impact on matters that can affect the rest of your life. Our perspective and approach are straightforward guidance to the path of emotional, physical, and financial stability. Our professional team is caring and capable – you can trust that our priority is safeguarding your best interests.

When Things are Most Difficult, We’re Here To Help

The path is not always clear, and your legal concerns are not always black and white. Not every attorney has the knowledge and experience to address the complex equitable distribution involved with business entities, multiple real estate holdings and protecting precious family heirlooms and other assets or the unique understanding and experience to address the high emotions and conflicts in custody matters. Children’s needs must come first, property and asset valuations must be accurate, and the distribution of assets and debts must be equitable. Our legal team has extensive experience creating amicable solutions and a solid reputation for strong courtroom litigation. Our attorneys have a combined more than 50 years of professional experience creating and maintaining our reputation and relationships with other attorneys and the courts.

Our legal team has the insight you need to address not just divorce, but the full range of family law issues, including:

– Alimony/Spousal Support
– Child Custody and Visitation
– Child Support
– Equitable Distribution/Property Division of marital assets
– Protection of separate assets
– Matters involving Domestic Violence
– Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Separations Agreements

“I have known Donna Ambler Rice in her role as a practicing attorney and mine as a district court judge for more than 30 years.  She is known to be a tireless advocate for her clients.  Her reasoning skills and knowledge of the law are surpassed by none.”


“My case presented extra challenges and Donna Rice tackled each issue aggressively on my behalf.  Without her tireless efforts and extensive family law experience, I would not have the custody arrangement I now have.”


“Without Donna Rice’s help, my custody case would not have been so successful. I am sure not all custody cases have happy endings, but mine did. My daughter has grown up as an accomplished young woman as a result.”
