About me


I'm a Warrior for Justice.

I was honored to graduate from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College,one of the nation's prestigious and selective programs for trial lawyers.

Although I've been a lawyer over 32 years I strive to improve my skills, to be on top of my game, to be my best because the good folks who hire me deserve it.


I listen.

I don't get paid until you win.

I've been a lawyer for a long time, I love my job more than ever. I'm devoted to my family and friends, and feel blessed in many ways.

I don't  treat my clients like a set of facts on a yellow legal pad. I get to know my clients and take the time to discover their stories. By listening, truly listening with my head and my heart, I can tell an honest, compelling and real story to any insurance adjuster, judge or jury.

It is my belief that there are no coincidences In this life. The folks who call me, do so for a reason and I honor that bond.

All of us, at one time or another, have difficult situations, problems and conditions. I try to connect on a human level with my clients--to be real, honest and open. I don't pretend to be holier-than- thou or better than anyone else. 

I'm committed to maximum compensation for my clients-- full justice, without hurting anyone else in the process of seeking justice.

As a Warrior for Justice, I am in a blood-brotherhood with some of the best, most successful lawyers in the country. With these close personal connections I can literally help you with a case almost anywhere in the country.

Thanks for spending time on my AVVO site. I'd be honored to help you.

    Charlie Donahue continues to be one of the best trial lawyers this country has to offer. Time and again I have seen him fight the “David and Goliath” battle for the underdog and, time and again he wins and wins big. The secret to his success is not just a big brain, but also a big heart. If you need a lawyer who cares for you and knows how to deliver results, Charlie is your man.
