Best Damn Attorney!
He fought for me after being appointed to my case less than a month before trial! I had to fire my paid attorneys after they tried to get me to plea on a charge I had nothing to do with a video to back me up. I knew I could trust Donahue to fight for me and he did just that! Judge found me Not guilty! Thanks John Donahue!!!

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. Donahue just completed a month long Capital Murder jury trial in Bell County. The District Attorney was seeking the death penalty. Instead, the sentence was life in prison without parole. Mr. Donahue and his cocounsel saved their client’s life. You can’t do much better than that. Outstanding result by an outstanding lawyer. David Fernandez, Jr., Attorney at Law, Temple, Texas."
