Dondra Bass O'Neal was born and raised in Savannah, GA.  Following graduation from law school, she worked for several large law firms in Atlanta and Tampa, primarily working for insurance companies fighting personal injury claims.  During that time, she always felt compassion for the injured individuals who often lacked the resources and sophistication of the insurance companies they were fighting.  Thus, in 2006, she opened her own law firm, Bass Law, which exclusively assists individuals who have suffered personal injuries. 

Bass Law handles personal injury claims throughout Georgia and Florida. We specialize in representing injured individuals and their families with personal injury claims in two primary areas: (1) motor vehicle accidents; and (2) civil actions arising from criminal activity. The motor vehicle accidents we frequently handle may involve automobiles, bicycles, buses, motorcycles or trucks.

Sometimes, a victim of a crime may also have a civil claim relating to the criminal activity. The civil cases we generally handle for crime victims involve automobile collisions in which the at-fault driver was cited for DUI, sexual abuse of a minor and cases involving an assault or attack on commercial property, such as at an apartment complex, shopping center or school.

"Taking Your Injury Personally" is more than just a tagline to us. It is the attitude with which we approach each client's case. Bass Law distinguishes itself from other law firms in the Savannah area by always putting clients first, maintaining regular communication with each client, treating each case no matter the size with high priority and by fighting tirelessly and relentlessly to obtain the compensation its clients deserve.  Because Dondra represented insurance companies for the first 9 years of her career, she possesses a unique advantage and insight into insurance companies that you don't often find with plaintiff's attorneys. Further, having worked in large firms where clients were often passed along to legal assistants, paralegals and several different attorneys during the pendency of their cases, Dondra has dedicated herself to maintaining a smaller law firm where clients can feel confident that they will not only obtain the best results for their cases but also receive the highest level of personal attention, compassion and treatment.

We would love the opportunity to serve you!

She Really Does Care!!!!
I resided Out Of Town and Ms. O'Neal successfully handled my case and saved me transportation expenses. This occurred in 2013 and she has kept in touch with me ever since; never forgetting to send me a Birthday Card! MY DEEPEST GRATITUDE!

Compassionate !!
Dondra provided extremely competent legal care. She was prepared and I understood that she was in control. In the court room there was no doubt that she was confident and definitely in her element. In our meetings prior to court, she was compassionate and caring - I knew that she would do everything she could to protect my interests. Her careful explanations took away much of the element of surprise which allowed me to enter the court room with a positive outlook and to leave, vindicated !!

Dondra Bass, is an excellent attorney for both your personal injury, and criminal cases. She is highly intelligent, and thinks about things in the clients perspective and from an excellent attorneys perspective. She can get you the best results out of your case, full of integrity, and makes sure that you are well aware of anything you need to be informed of leaving you with confidence! Thank you so much Dondra, for all that you've done for me couldn't have asked for a better attorney for my first experience. Would recommend Bass Law to anyone she will handle it!
