STRONGLY recommend this law firm.
Mr Donnelly-Cole has been extraordinary in my case. His defense counsel work and understanding of the law has been absolutely top notch.
Additionally, he is not just highly professional, but very personable. Will return to him to hire in the future as well. He has helped me, vigorously, at every stage.
I have never had to hire a defense attorney in the past, but I have served on several juries. I was often appalled at the shoddy representation provided by some of the lawyers I saw in action.
When my son, Eric, needed an attorney, he asked for my help in selecting one. We did our homework before contacting Damien, but we were still concerned that Eric’s future relied on the expertise and professionalism of someone who was virtually unknown to us.
We both agree that Damien performed above and beyond our expectations. He clearly and concisely outlined for us how Eric’s case would move through the legal system, and the most likely outcomes at each stage. The case progressed exactly as he projected. In meetings with the prosecution and the judge, Damien was prepared, resourceful and professional. In our experience he always had anticipated their questions and positions in advance of the meetings and hearings, and was well prepared to continue moving the case towards an exceptional final resolution.
In addition to providing outstanding representation and sound advice, Damien was exceptionally responsive and conscientious. He made every effort to be accessible despite his other obligations. He thoughtfully answered all of our questions, no matter how trivial or repetitive they were.
Finally, even though Damien would have made a lot more money had the case gone to trial, he negotiated an excellent and early resolution to the case. He then refunded a significant portion of the retainer.
Hopefully neither of us ever will need representation again, but if we do, we will not hesitate before contacting Damien.
Damien provided excellent council before, during and after my DUII court court case. Prior to court he provided detailed information regarding how the process worked. He answered my many questions clearly and made sure I correctly understood the likely outcomes of the different options available.
He also explained in detail the process that would occur the day of court and attended with me. This was very helpful as the process moves fast without much explanation of what you are supposed to do.
His follow up afterwards was also quite thorough. He made clear he available to help resolve any follow issues that cropped up. All in all, I was very comfortable working with him and would recommend him without reservation.
As you can see from my ratings Damien made me feel very comfortable. Under very uncomfortable
circumstances he led me thru everything with all my options and set me at ease. I would very much
recommend his services to anyone in need of a lawyer.
I hired Damien Donnelly-Cole after I was charged with a DUII that resulted in a pretty bad accident. Not only am I grateful that nobody was hurt, but I’m also very relieved that I chose to hire Damien. He was there for me every step of the way. Not only did he help me with the DMV and the Court, but he also helped me as I struggled with the issues in my life that brought me to such a low point. Thank you Damien for your time, help, and patience.
No parent wants to see their child in legal trouble. In fact, we didn't know what to do, we had not been in any legal trouble. Damien was recommended to us and our working relationship was excellent. Emails were responded to the same day, information about what to expect was thoughtfully presented. Thank you, Thank you!
Damien S Donnelly-Cole really eased my legal situation and gave me peace of mind during a time of great turmoil, but he also gave me realistic advice and not empty promises. When I walked out of court i felt reassured that my legal issues could be resolved and I could move on with my life. Thank you so much Damien for your time and patience .
Damien is an honest, trustworthy attorney who I have felt comfortable with since our initial conversation a few months back. He has been very professional, understanding and has responded quickly to any and all of my questions and concerns. I recommend Damien if you find yourself in a bind.
I use Damien as a legal consult to better understand my rights regarding medical marijuana in the state of Oregon. He is very knowledgeable and demonstrates exceptional skill conveying the laws to me in a way that is clear and helpful. In addition to his legal knowledge he is just a friendly person who I enjoy interacting with. I'd highly recommend Damien to anyone seeking legal consultation or representation.
Damien Donnelly-Cole is an excellent lawyer who went above and beyond his duties to ensure thorough communication and honest judgment when working with me on my case, plus his services are priced fairly! Even though I live out of the State of Oregon, Mr. Donnelly-Cole was prompt and upfront in relaying the details of my case and what I could expect next, and he clarified the legal process so that I could make informed choices on how to proceed. He conducted himself professionally and courteously, and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. I highly recommend Mr. Donnelly-Cole’s legal services - he is a lawyer with integrity!
