I hired Donald and his team for a felony charge that very well could have ended my career in the workforce as well taken me away from my family. Donald was like a lion protecting his cub. He did not let up. He challenged and they ended up dropping the charges to a misdemeanor. I'm so very appreciative of him and his team. They gave me my life back. He's definitely someone I'd recommend.

I called the MacNeil Firm less than an hour after being arrested and I was able to meet with Don on the same day which was exactly what I needed. I was very worried prior to speaking with
him as I have never been arrested or have had the need for a lawyer in the past. Don supplied multiple options and calmed the
uneasy feeling I had after being arrested. Inside the courtroom he was professional, well spoken, organized, & commendable. He took the time to walk me thru everything before and as it was happening which helped keep me at ease. I went in knowing this process was going to take a few visits to the courthouse, but to my surprise when we were there he was able to end everything in only one visit. This was fantastic because the outcome was better than expected as well as the money and time that I was saved due to not having the process dragged out.

I was in an intersection waiting to make a left hand turn and was hit by oncoming traffic that veered into my lane. The man that hit me had two prior accidents that month and was in a rental car. He called his friend who was a cop and I received a ticket. Don MacNeil got the ticket thrown out and my car insurance was not affected. He also helped me in a work situation where an angry ex-boss was trying to get me fired from a new job. Don is a professional, brilliant, down to earth, extremely competent, top notch attorney. I highly recommend him!!!

I highly endorse Don MacNeil. I worked on dozens of cases with Don when I was a prosecutor and he was defending his clients on criminal charges. Don has a great knowledge of the law and also of the ins and outs of the court process. Don impressed me as a zealous advocate for his clients and worked hard and smart to get the best possible outcome for all of his clients.
