DONNAVON VASEK -.  

My practice focuses on criminal defense and probate (including Last Will and Testaments, Conservatorship, Probate, and Powers of Attorney), and civil law. My core belief in my practice is that I will provide my clients with the most comprehensive review of their case and the most assertive and thorough effort to resolve it to its best outcome while treating them with the care, honesty, and discretion they expect and deserve. Nothing else is acceptable to me as an attorney, nor should it be to you as a client.

Being in the courtroom nearly every day of every week has exposed me to the glaring fact that we as citizens must ensure that our consititutional rights are protected in the courts. From investigating simple DUIs to sex offenses to vehicular homicide, I have seen firsthand how important it is for every citizen to have access to skilled and dedicated defense counsel.

I uphold the aggressive defense of my clients combined with a compassionate and honest understanding of the effect the charges they face are having or will have on their lives and the lives of their families. I realize many lawyers will tell you they will “fight for you,” as will I, but I also know that fighting is no use unless your case is fully investigated, prepared, and wisely thought out to its most beneficial end. I will provide you a passionate defense tempered with a great strategy and an intelligent plan of action.

I provide defense for charges such as:

DUI/DWIBUI (Boating Under the Influence)

Domestic Assault, Sexual Assault, Illegal Possession of Drugs

Drugs and Weapons charges

Drug Possession

Probation Violations

Records Expungement and any other type of criminal charge.

I also provide legal services in estate law, such as Willis and Powers of Attorneys.

Donnavon Vasek is brilliant at what he does. He obtained the best possible outcome for a close family member. I hired Mr. Vasek for my family member. When you need the best, contact Mr. Vasek.

This man is a legend, and saved me a life of misery!
Mr. Vasek was appointed to my post convinction relief case in Wilson county. He fought diligently day in and day out for me. He spent countless hours doing research, reviewing evidence, and picking my brain for all the information he could use. I've never had an attorney listen to me, and give me advice the way he did. He won my case in the court of criminal appeals and got my convictions reversed. Afterwards he was appointed to represent me on several complex felony charges. He got me everything I wanted. I owe this man! Mr. Vasek and his team kept me up to date, worked tirelessly to seek justice, and in the end we prevailed. It's rare that cases get overturned in appeals court, especially with the circumstances we faced, but this man did that for me.

A trustworthy and knowledgeable lawyer
I hired Donnavon to write my legal documents and give legal advice for my business. I had attempted to research and write myself, but ended up causing myself more harm than good. Donnavon was helpful to put me in the right direction, and explain the laws/ details in a way that I could easily understand. He took his time with me, and I felt like I was the only case he had. By the time I left the first meeting, we had a game plan and knew I was in the right place. If you’re looking to hire an attorney who is going to get things done- he is definitely your guy, and I will definitely use him corn our legal needs.

Fantastic Attorney!
Donnavon Vasek did a fantastic job with my case. From the moment I walked in for my consultation, he already had a couple different plans to handle my situation. Very professional and knowledgeable. I always felt like there was nothing to worry about after I hired him. I’m happy to say he resolved my case and gave me the best outcome I could have asked for! I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a criminal defense lawyer. He will try his hardest to fight for your rights!

Atty Vasek was great and very knowledgeable.
Mr. Vasek and Alex (Paralegal) were wonderful to us in preparing my wife and my Wills. I feel having them prepare our Wills and the questions he asked us helped my our legal documents more professional. It's like a heavy weight has been lifted as my wife and I look forward to our older years.

Hidden jewel
Had no idea what Donnavon was capable of or even if he truly had my best interest at heart until yesterday. People, you won’t regret the knowledge and service he has to offer. If your looking to hire a big gun in the court room, then look no farther. At best I thought he would have my offense lowered, after all I did admit guilt. Thanks to Donnovan and his team my charge was dismissed.

Hard Working and Never Gives Up!
Donnavon worked for close to two years on my case. He never gave up and worked every possible angle of negotiation/compromise to give me the best possible outcome. Finally his hard work paid off and I am very happy with the outcome. I appreciate all of the effort put in and I 100% recommend him. He is a good dude!

Thanks Donovan
My wife and I were being sued by the purchaser of a home we sold. We hired Mr. Vasek to handle the case for us. He did a great job in looking out for our best interest. We could not be more pleased with the way he treated us, the way he handled our case and the final outcome. Thanks Donovan

Joe, it was an honor to have you and your wife trust me with such an important issue in your lives. I appreciate the opportunity to help you in this situation. The results were great and I am glad you are happy with my representation and the final result of the case. Thank you!

Highly Recommend
After a lapse in judgement, I was facing jail time that would have ruined my future career and ruined my last year of college. Mr. Donnavon Vasek advocated for me to get me the minimum sentence so I could proceed with my career, and even after the court case was settled, he still advocated for me to have less probationary penalties that were financially a struggle for me. He advocated for me until he had those penalties removed--even after he had been paid and court completed and he had no obligation to me. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice or representation.

Agressive
I was arrested for violating two (2) conditions of my Community Supervision. Both were class A misdemeanors that carried a lot of stress for me. First I was charged without a proper investigation of the company that I worked for. That being said I was encouraged by Donnovan when I first met him. I wasn't judged by my past, what a relief that is. Donnovan merely asked the facts and encouraged me with the fact that I wouldn't be hiring a lawyer but a law firm. Immediately upon hiring Donnovan the investigators went to work on verifying my actual position and the conditions that I worked in. They were able to corroborate my statements. Then no promises were made that anything would happen at the first court appearance but, Donnovan hit the state right between the eyes and told them that they "don't want this fight, that they would lose". The State dismissed both counts and I walked out with out any further cost or stress. I would also like to note that I had interviewed one other attorney and almost considered the Public Defenders office. Thank you Donnovan and your team!! One of the wisest decisions I have ever made.

I recommend Donnavon Vasek!
I used Mr. Vasek on an estate issue and was really impressed with him. He was thorough and brought up points that I had never even considered and I have worked in the legal field for 15 years. I thought he was sincere and very interested in helping me.

Mr. Vasek did a great job on my case.
I didn't know where to turn with a pending assault charge and was referred to Donnavon Vasek. He seemed very caring and interested in me and my case from our initial consultation. He also kept me informed during the whole process, which helped quite a bit! The outcome could not have been better, it truly was better than I had hoped for. I would recommend him to anyone who asked.

Grandmother's Probate Case
My brother and I hired Mr. Vasek to represent us in our grandmother's probate case. It was a very complex case that included our great grandfather's estate, trust accounts, commercial properties, and a difficult family. We cannot say enough how thankful and proud of the representation that we received. Mr. Vasek always returned our calls in a timely manner, he took the time to explain to us the issues and solutions, and he fought for us when the other attorneys wouldn't do anything. Our grandmother passed away almost 5 years ago and if it wasn't for Mr. Vasek, we'd still be in the same spot. He is a wonderful attorney and person. We will definitely use him in the future for any problems. We highly recommend Donnavon Vasek!
