Mental Health Advocacy in New Jersey

Families in crisis require focused and personalized attention to help resolve legal matters, particularly if underlying mental health issues are present. Donna Levinston Braff knows that mental health issues can affect litigants in all areas of the law and she understands the significant link between mental health and legal concerns.

Recognizing that the legal system is not well equipped to assist individuals with mental health issues, Donna strives to help litigants and their families successfully navigate the New Jersey court system.  As a supporter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Donna recognizes that mental health implications may lead to divorces that are more difficult, higher juvenile delinquency rates, heightened risk of substance abuse, and complications in estate planning.

Donna understands the unique challenges facing clients and other litigants coping with mental health issues, including:

  • ADHD, Anxiety, Conduct Disorder, Bipolar Illness, Schizophrenia, and Substance Abuse
  • Involuntary Commitments
  • Psychiatric Advance Directives
  • Therapies and Medication Management
  • Wrap Around Services
  • Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Implications
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Hospital and Residential Care Issues
  • Community Services

If mental health issues affect your life, or that of your spouse or your children, it is important to find a compassionate and knowledgeable attorney willing to advocate on your behalf.

Please note, unfortunately this law office does not handle claims against, doctors, hospitals, or health care providers.
