Chris Donovan handled our case with utmost professionalism and genuine concern for us, as his clients. The outcome of the case was extremely favorable, in spite of dismal odds. We highly recommend him and consider him to be a shining star within the legal profession.
If you're facing federal charges, in my opinion, you could not do better than Chris Donovan. He was helpful and kept me informed all through my case and afterward through my petition for early release.
I honestly can't say enough. If you need an attorney, Call Pruhs and Donovan and hire Chris.
Chris was recommended to me by the lawyer my wife retained, and he told us by hiring chris we were basically assembling a dream team to combat the states criminal charges against us. The states case was built upon a illegal garbage search, and between Chris and my wife's attorney built a case to suppress the search and did they hit a grand slam with it. The state would not reveal who the garbage men were along with the suppression, they did not want the courts to make a ruling on our case, so they called and offered to dismiss the charges, We were not happy with this offer, because at any time the state could refile the charges, and basically run us out money to defend our self's, so I called Chris and explained our dilemma with him and he said he would talk with my wife's lawyer and within 24 hours called me back to say that the state had put it's tail between it's legs, and now were offering to dismiss with prejudice( which meant they could never come back at us on these charges.
I highly recommend chris and if faced with criminal charges again, I would not hesitate to call him, He answered emails quickly and returned calls promptly and let no rock unturned in my pursuit to have these charges dismissed or if I had gone to trial to have a not guilty verdict entered on my behalf.
Another added bonus was that Chris took my case on a flat rate instead of an hourly rate which I thought was awesome, without the worry of the meter is running.
So I say to you Chris, many many thanks and will recommend anyone I know needing a awesome lawyer to defend themselves against criminal charges
It is a privilege to be able to add comment to such an outstanding lawyer. I hired Chris when I was going through some unfair justice in the court system and he was there for me and my case every step of the way. Let’s face it, the law is a complicated and an ever changing field and you need someone who stays on top of their game if you’re going to have any chance of success in your case. Chris Donovan looked at every angle when it came to my defense and cut absolutely NO corners when writing up the briefs.
Before I hired Chris, I paid for a well-known, multi-year running, “Super Lawyer;” who in the end failed me. I lost. But knowing my basic civil rights, I went forward and was recommended to Chris Donovan. If you’re looking for an honest, ethical, trustworthy lawyer; I would highly encourage Chris Donovan as your attorney!
