Sherri Donovan Counsels Mob Wife on VH1 Hit Show

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- Divorce attorney Sherri Donovan made her reality TV debut in a recent episode of the VH1 hit show, Mob Wives, where she is seen providing legal counsel to mob wife Renee Graziano. Ms. Donovan was asked to take on this roles because she is an expert in domestic violence and legal protection from stalking and harassment, issues of particular interest to Mrs. Graziano, whose abusive ex-husband Junior is about to be released from prison.

As the scene unfolds in Ms. Donovan's law office, Renee Graziano is seated across from the stern-faced attorney, explaining that her ex has been writing to her from prison expressing his desire that the mob couple try to rekindle their relationship once he is set free. Mrs. Graziano wants nothing to do with Junior, telling Donovan that she fears that once Junior is out of prison, he will stalk and harass her.

The audience soon finds out that this is not your typical attorney client conference because while Graziano wants legal advice, she is hesitant to follow Ms. Donovan's unequivocal recommendations out of concern for breaking mob family protocol on such matters. "My thing is I come from a specific family life style," Renee explains to Ms. Donovan. "This, right here (their meeting) is gonna be wrong to a lot of people." Graziano then cuts right to the chase about her feelings on seeking legal counsel for her family problem. "I would never go to a lawyer. I would never go to cops or anything like that. To me personally, what I'm doing right now between you and I, I feel like this is a rat thing. I don't like this."

Sherri Donovan, unfazed by Graziano's underworld loyalty issues, will hear none of it, replying, "This is not ratting. This is protecting." She then makes the point more emphatically saying, "If you don't do this you are ratting on yourself."

In addition to enjoying her 15 minutes of pop culture fame, Sherri Donovan was equally pleased with her opportunity to send a message to other women who might also be in an abusive relationship. Donovan made it clear to Graziano there were many good legal options available to her, and that she should strongly consider taking them; a message that, in Ms. Donovan's opinion, many other women need to hear. "Being on Mob Wives was fun, but at the same time I wanted to tell women caught up in violent, abusive relationships that they have legal options available to get out of their situations."

Sherri Donovan has been a divorce and family law attorney since 1986. During this time she has come to realize that legal counseling is just one of many vital services that couples need when the fabric of their families begins to unravel. Understanding this better than most people in her field, Ms. Donovan recently launched her Family Center, staffed by her Family Team of professionals. The Family Center offers comprehensive services for people going through divorce, custody and family transitions. The service areas covered by the Family Team include parent and divorce coaching, psychological services and assistance for issues related to special needs children, finance, real estate, business and health concerns.
