Robert Donatoni has provided counsel for our family on numerous occasions over the last eight years. In addition to being a well respected and ethical attorney, he represents his clients vigorously and is sensitive to the people and families he works with. He is wise, both legally and morally, a true counselor.
Anyone can recognize a good golf swing! Rob's legal swing is excellent. Good off the tee, his short game is great, and he putts well. He is the whole package. He is my first call when counsel is needed.
Finally, Rob's associates are competent and available. His office staff are pleasant and informed.
Life is easier because of Donatoni and Associates!
He is the Best of the Best!

There are many good lawyers in Pennsylvania, but I made the best choice in hiring Rob to defend me in a very complicated Federal case that could have had extreme serious consequences if I was convicted. Rob is a true professional who brings a high degree of integrity, experience and determination to do his best for his client. He is a calculated listener who is focused on the issues, outlines the case to you and gives you the confidence that he has your interests at heart. In the courtroom, he is relentless as a pit bull taking the slightest opening to advance his client's chances for victory. If you ever have the occasion to retain Rob as your lawyer, relax, you have more than you can pay for- a lawyer who knows his stuff, a lawyer who treats you like family, a lawyer who displays professionalism and integrity, a lawyer who you will recommend to anyone and a lawyer you will call on again and again. With Rob as your lawyer, win or lose, (and he never one day spoke about loosing during my trial) you will realize that he is a credit to a profession that is often criticized.

When I was charged with Murder I went through an awful, dark time to the point where I could have just thrown in the towel. Rob Donatoni fought fiercely at my trial on my behalf and on behalf of my children. Being found not guilty of Murder was because of Rob's hard work and dedication. I know of no other lawyer or person that is as committed to the cause of his clients then Rob.
