Excellent Lawyer!! He Saved My Life! 5 stars!
I am so proud to say that Mr.Donati will be referred to everyone I know. He achieved what seemed to be impossible and I am so grateful. He has saved me and my family's lives. I am a disabled single mother. We literally were in a crisis situation. God Bless him. I can't thank him enough.

Positive results
I came to Mr. Robert Donati for help with my disability case. I was completely frazzled by the system and needed guidance. Covid made things extra hard and slow with the social security office but Mr. Donati and his staff kept me updated with scheduled phone appointments and were always fast to respond to any phone calls or questions. They helped me through the appeals process and I had a favorable outcome without having to go to court. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs help in this area. I do truly feel like he listens and cares about you and your needs.

As a client I think that Donati law firm was most helpful in every way with my case. They were attentive to all of my needs and will most definitely recommend them in the future to any one who needs some help with any legal problems.

Donati Law won my disability case when a different law firm couldn't
I brought my disability claim to Donati Law firm after a different law firm lost my hearing and appeal. Mr. Donati and his assistants helped me with my appeals and kept me informed about what was going on with my case. When it came time for my hearing, Mr. Canale prepared me and during the hearing, the judge told us we won! Mr. Canale was also able to get the judge to go back on the claim that other law firm lost!
