Criminal case
We hire Mr. Angelo two years ago, for an extremely difficult case, and only God and an extremely professional attorney can resolve our case. I highly recommend Mr. Angelo for all your low situation. Thank you, May God bless you!

Angelo MacDonald saved my life and I am forever grateful
Angelo MacDonald is possibly the most trustworthy and honest person I have ever met in my life, along with being the most informative and intelligent lawyer in the entire industry. I had dealt with quite a violent case that I got myself into and Angelo got me out of all the charges, with seemingly very little effort. I believe it is due to the fact that he has so many connections everywhere in the United Staes. He is the greatest lawyer in the world in my personal opinion, no one I would hire over him, and I've been with many lawyers. I highly recommend Angelo, because he will save your life, if it needs saving.

HE SAVED OUR DAUGHTER'S LIFE
I cannot believe it is over 10 yrs since our honor student (NEVER in any legal situation before) daughter, then a college sophomore, was arrested (railroaded) by college (state) police on drug charges. She was meant to be made an example of, and was charged with THREE CLASS A FELONIES. A family friend sent us to Angelo McDonald. To say he went above and beyond would be a huge understatement. Beyond his legal experience and expertise, I would be remiss not to point out his caring, thoughtful, manner...doing and saying everything he could to quell the unimaginable fears of us all. He traveled back and forth for several months, out of the city, to multiple hearings. The end result? Everything reduced to the smallest innocuous charge and no record. Plus, the judge in closing statements, praised our daughter, her educational and civic accomplishments, and best wishes and confidence for her future! (She finished college, with honors, and has been teaching H S Spec Ed English for almost five yrs). So when I say Angelo McDonald saved our child's life, it is not ahyperbolic statement. I pray nobody ever be faced with our situation, but if you're ever in need of the best lawyer and PROTECTOR, he is THE MAN.

48 year old man hired Mr. MacDonald criminal defense attorney
Mr. MacDonald was recommended by a friend’s attorney. I went to the consultation and he offered a reasonable rate and did a great job and I received a better offer than I expected. I’m so glad that I hired him. Money well spent. He is also very personable and kind. He went above and beyond his call of duty.

Great lawyer and a great guy
I hired Angelo as my attorney for a criminal case. Angelo is extremely easy to reach via text and call. He ALWAYS has your back and outlines the case as soon as he gets all the details. Angelo gives it to you straight, whether good or bad the situation you can always trust that he is handling it properly. I’d recommend Angelo to literally anybody who needs a lawyer. I owe him more than a thank you.

"CALM BEFORE THE STORM"
ATTORNEY MACDONALD IS THE ATTORNEY I CALL A CALM BEFORE THE STORM. HE IS BETTER THAN PERRY MASON AND HE WAS A TV CHARACTER. MACDONALD IS AN ATTORNEY THAT WILL RIGHT THE WRONG. HE TAKES HIS TIME BEFORE HE SPEAKS BUT WHEN HE DOES NO ONE CAN RESIST HIS QUESTIONS. IF YOU WANT AN LAWYER THAT IS A CALM BEFORE THE STORM AND WILL GET RESULTS, THEN GET HIM. HE HAS KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM, AND UNDERSTANDING TO HANDLE YOUR CASE. HE IS NOT AN ORDINARY ATTORNEY IN MY OPINION BUT ONE THAT IS USED BY THE LORD MIGHTILY. I PRAY YOU WILL NEVER NEED AN ATTORNEY, BUT IF YOU DO, GET THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM. HE IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE IN WHAT HE IS DOING AND VERY TRUSTWORTHY. HE HELPED MY BROTHER RIGHT A WRONG THAT HE WAS ACCUSED OF COMMITTING. I AM PROUD OF THIS "CALM BEFORE THE STORM ATTORNEY".
