When you hire Doreen Bonadies Halickman, you're not just retaining an attorney, you're hiring a dedicated and experienced family law attorney.

Ms. Halickman has more than 15 years experience working as a family law attorney and was certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a Family Mediator and the University of Connecticut and Quinnipica University School of Law Center on Dipsute Resolution. In addition to trying cases before a judge, she has negotiated and settled numerous cases from the simple to the complex and has drafted hundreds of marital settlement agreements both as an attorney and as a mediator. She is known for her professionalism and her strong work ethic. She consistently keeps her clients up to date on their cases, and provides realistic, practical and often creative and “outside the box” advice.

Attorney Halickman is the eldest of four children who grew up in New Haven County, Connecticut. Prior to relocating to Florida in 2004, Ms. Halickman was a partner at Biller, Sachs, Raio & Bonadies, LLC n/k/a Biller, Sachs, Raio & Zito, LLC in New Haven, Connecticut. There she practiced family law, personal injury and employment law and remains of counsel to the firm. Upon relocating to Florida, Ms. Halickman decided to concentrate solely in family law and worked as a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator for the 15th Judicial Circuit, Palm Beach County, Florida where she mediated over 400 cases, cases with attorneys and pro se parties, those without attorneys. Also during that time she studied for and passed the Florida Bar. Upon being admitted to the Florida Bar, Ms. Halickman practiced family and marital law at the prestigious law firm of Fox, Wackeen, Dungey, Beard, Sobel, McCluskey & Bush in Stuart, Florida.
