    Don is the epitome of the gentleman lawyer. He has earned the respect of the bar and the bench and treats his clients with the utmost respect. His experience as as prosecutor and defense attorney help him achieve awesome results for his clients. I would without hesitation recommend him to anyone in New Hampshire or Massachusetts, knowing the client would both be treated well and well-represented.
