Very Satisfied Client
I have used a couple different lawyers for various things throughout the years and Graham is unequivocally the most efficient and hardest working one that I have hired. He is extremely thorough and communicates very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for an attorney.

Excellent.....
I was in theunfortunate case of needing a criminal defense attorney. I was recommended to Graham by another attorney who does not handle criminal cases. Graham was very knowledgable, efficient and was able to obtain a dismissal of my case.

HIRE THIS MAN
Graham and his staff were excellent. Trust the process. I had some very dark times after being wrongly accused of some very heinous crimes. Graham is playing chess and gets what we deserve and more. He talked to me for hours on a sunday night after being arrested and after meeting in person I hired him immediately. Trust the process thats all i really can say. Do not hesitate to hire him. He is patient and thorough. I cannot over state how glad i am that we hired him. A+++++

Amazing Attorney
I'm absolutely thrilled with the incredible job Graham Donath did on my case. He held on to the case for years during the pandemic, always showing up for me and representing me at every hearing until he was able to get the charges dismissed! His patience, incredible strategy and foresight in my case was amazing. He's by far the BEST attorney I've ever had, and he's also a very great guy. I'm so happy with the results, it's difficult to put into words. I've made a few mistakes in life, but hiring Graham was NOT one of them. You cannot go wrong hiring Mr. Donath to represent you.

My Experience working with Mr. Donath was nothing short of exceptional. Even with an extensive criminal history, Mr. Donath was able to have the court agree to giving me some time to complete treatment and show the court who I've become. I was faced with 6 years in prison and was able to continue on a positive path serving my time on probation. I'm very grateful for everything Graham and his office did for me. They were supportive, congratulatory, and fought for my success the entire year it took us to get through my case. Thank you again. Highly recommended!!!!!

Amazing Lawyer and Group!!!
This Law firm is by far the most helpful, considerate, respectful, knowledgeable, and communicative group I have ever worked with. I had a horrible experience with another law firm that did not represent me and used scare tactics to get more money out of me and continue getting me unfavorable outcomes. I finally reached out to this group for help and they were very understanding. They quoted me a very reasonable price for representation and we’re able to fix the mess my previous lawyer made and in fact improved my situation by getting me much better terms only after one hearing. They have given me hope for a better future and I would recommend them to anyone who is dealing with a similar situation as mine. I can’t thank them enough for what they have done for me, they were a blessing in my life.

Straightforward, highly effective. Look no further.
Never thought I would have the need to use these services. And made a few calls before calling here. The other calls I made were disappointing, I could practically hear the cash register ringing as I spoke with them. When you are in this situation you already feel “processed” and you want to feel that your attorney sees you as a person, not an invoice. I did a little more research online and really like Graham Donath’s credentials, so called his office. From my very first call to Carrie in the office, I felt reassured and well taken care of. She is empathetic, professional, and super responsive and excellent with follow through. When Mr. Donath called me for my initial consult, (outside of office hours, which I really appreciated) I felt exactly the same way. He immedialy impressed me as very skillful and knowledgable. When we went to the hearing, he was able to resolve my case quickly, the outcome was the best possible one. Having called around before deciding on him, I also found his rate to be reasonable. For the level of professionalism, service, and knowledge, as well as a successful outcome, this was money well spent and peace of mind restored.

I am so happy I found Graham Donath
I feel so fortunate that i found Graham Donath. He took on my son's case. My son is not a criminal but he got caught up in the criminal system due to several probation violations and pretty serious domestic charges. He was very clear and told me what we were up against and what was possible. He gave me a package price that I could understand and could commit to. He achieved every thing that he said was possible. I think that I got more than I paid for. I highly recommend this lawyer to represent anybody you care about. He takes your case and treats it with the upmost respect and importance.

Best criminal defense lawyer around !
Graham is a great lawyer I was recommended from a friend he really helped who was fighting 25 plus years but he beat his case, in my eyes he's the best! He was always very responsive and made sure to get all the details he needed to beat my case. The DA was trying to at first give me time, then wanted to put me on probation for 3 years but I couldn't accept that or even afford anything on my record because it would ruin my career. So with great communication and persistence Graham got my case dismissed with a small fine and community service. He truly is the best I give him 5 stars and I recommend you choose him you won't be disappointed. He is very honest and will tell you the truth, that’s what I love about him he promised he would help but went above my expectations, because of his hard work I can now follow through with my career.

Great Outcome
Mr. Donath was referred to me by a prominent lawyer in San Diego, as one of the best in the Riverside area and he did not disappoint. From the first meeting until even today Mr. Donath has been honest, attentive to our questions and works for the best possible outcome. We are thankful he was able to bring the charges down from 2 felonies to 1 misdemeanor. Not only is Mr. Donath great but his office staff talked me off of many ledges. Deanna is very compassionate, empathic she takes the time to listen to your questions, fears and leaves you feeling like a positive can come from any situation, I am truly grateful for her, Mr. Donath and the outcome of the case.

Outstanding in every way!
Incredible in every way! Graham and his team are outstanding—I cannot say enough good things about them. Graham came to the courthouse near me that was quite a drive for him on multiple occasions, he accepted me as a client and answered my countless questions and concerns—helping me navigate through what was the absolute worst season of my life. Graham listened to my values and defended my rights. He and Carrie and Deanna are patient and kind, generous with their time and attention, thorough and willing to go the distance in every way. There is no other attorney I can possibly think of that can do what Graham does and do it so well. He was able to work a deal with the DA office in my area, despite not being his most frequented courthouse, he got me a deal that was astonishingly better than anyone else could have gotten me. I ended up with the shortest term of anger management courses to go through and countless people that had similar cases to mine had incredibly worse outcomes. People were so surprised when they heard my deal and assumed my attorney must be outrageously priced but honestly Mr. Donath is very, very fair in his pricing, even generous. I’m a person who prays and I certainly prayed through my hard season of court situations that God would bless Graham and give him wisdom and favor, particularly for my case, and I believe God certainly did! Say a little prayer for yourself and hire Graham Donath—you won’t regret it!

EXCELLENT attorney!
First and foremost, I want to thank Graham for walking me through, quite possibly one of the most uncertain times in life. I will not go into the details of my case, but the repercussions were severe, and it could have potentially destroyed my future. Against the odds, Graham successfully managed to pull me out of the depths of a legal nightmare, and he went above and beyond to ensure an excellent outcome. Graham’s expertise, professionalism, honesty, and representation are incomparable to other attorneys I have had. Graham handled my case professionally while he and his two excellent legal assistants, Carrie and Deanna, kept me updated on the progress consistently. Furthermore, Graham is greatly respected in the courtrooms and, more importantly, respected by every judge. So, If you find yourself in a legal situation where you need to depend on an attorney, I strongly encourage you to reach out to Graham. He’s a phenomenal attorney that believes in his clients and, more importantly, aggressively fights for them. Thanks again, Graham!

A lawyer that delivers RESULTS
Sometimes, you find yourself at the wrong place at the wrong time, and trying to find a lawyer who understands you and your troubles, can be a stressful process. Stumbling upon Mr. Donath & his team online was a godsend! My unfortunate circumstance with the law required a lawyer who understood my situation and would be able to deliver results. Mr. Donath and his team were absolutely that and more. From his legal staff to Mr. Donath himself, they were professional and understanding throughout the process, thorough in their explanations of California criminal law, and super accommodating with my situation, being from outside the area. I highly recommend Mr. Donath and his team.

Graham Donath represented me when I was charged with Felony Domestic Violence. From the beginning he was forthcoming and honest. He never wavered in defending my innocence. The case was ultimately Dismissed. He also helped me file a Motion of Factual Innocence that was Granted. I can say he truly restored my good name. I can Never Thank him and Ms Preciado enough.

Excellent Attorney and an Excellent Team
I was lucky enough to find Mr. Donath by chance. I called 8 different attorneys offices in San Bernardino looking to speak to someone about a consultation for my case but no one was available to take my call. The 9th call was Mr Donath's office and I was greeted by a very friendly women named Carrie who didn't treat me like someone who had a felony but just a regular person. I explained my situation...I had a felony for HS11366-M (Keep Place to Sell/Etc Controlled Substance). I had no priors to this case but having this felony on my record has meant that I could no longer obtain a great job and reach my full potential. I go to school for computer programming and I could forget about working for a fortune 500 company and provide for my family the way I would want to. In 2014 I was sentenced to a full term of 3 years in prison however, I was about 7 months pregnant. I agreed to suspended sentencing which meant I would have to be on probation for 3 years but at any time I violated it, I would still be sentenced to the full 3 years in prison. I explained my situation to Carrie and she passed it along to Mr. Donath. There was a change in law that took placed January of 2019 which would allow criminals who took a suspended sentence agreement to possibly have their felony reduced to a misdemeanor and expunged. Prior to this date, reduction/dismissal was not an option. Mr. Donath was knowledgeable about this new law that passed, informed me of it and was ready to help me get my life back in order. I hadn't been in any trouble since my sentencing. I just took care of business and led my life the best I could (going to school, working, taking of my family). Nothing but a happy ending here. I met Mr. Donath in court (my parents by my side for support), he was clean cut and pleasant as usual. By the end of my hearing, Judge Stodghill (pleasant) looked at me which a big smile and said "Congratulations Mrs. ******." My felony was 100% dismissed and my plea of no contest was changed to not guilty. This whole situation was the worse thing that could have ever happened but at that point, hearing those words from Judge Stodghill was one of the best moments. Mr. Donath, Carrie and Deanna changed my life and I could not me more appreciative. They were always honest, and ready to fight hard for me. Mr. Donath and his team we're worth every penny (which was more than reasonable might I add) and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a team ready to defend them.

Strait to the point
I'm writing this today because I am grateful to have my family all together today and that's thanks to Graham Donath. I had found my self in a bad mistake I chose to do which changed my life for ever. having to search for a attorney I called Mr. graham, Graham was always supportive, positive and present to answer and reassure me about anything I was facing . Not only did Graham help keep me from ever having to go to court and jail he went out of his way to supply all that I was asking from him and more. Today I can move on from my mistake, and I couldn't be more thankful for the professionalism, knowledge and expertise that Graham provided for me. Thank you Graham, from everyone in my family, if you are struggling who to call I would 100 % say Mr. graham is your attorney. he made my case less stressful free.

AMAZING! Never lost faith! Hit n Run Dismissed!
I got into a hit and run accident. It was very bad and a total accident because I was sleeping on the wheel (never do that, pull over). When I received a letter to go to court, I got worried and decided to find a lawyer. I am currently a college student trying to be a nurse and a hit and run conviction on my record could be very very bad for me. (like I cant get a job type of bad).. I made the mistake of not researching and found the first lawyer I could find under google. I thought all lawyers were the same and did the same practice. That was stupid of me. THERE ARE MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A GOOD LAWYER AND A BAD ONE. I was with that lawyer for a month but I didnt feel comfortable and overall I didnt trust this lawyer. I decided to cancel with that lawyer and actually do my research. This lead me to Graham Donath. This man is amazing. Not only did he have a great record of awards and successful cases, he made me feel like I could trust him and he would do his best to dismiss my case. Luckily for me, Hes also very familiar with the riverside court system because he used to work there as well. That means he KNOWS people. Judges, DAs you name it. Mr. Donath also has a wonderful assistant who made me feel calm whenever I got nervous and answered all my questions as quickly as possible. (She would relay my questions to Mr. Donath cause there are times when hes at court). I feel like a great assistant is a reflection of their boss and they were both amazing. Mr. Donath was originally trying to get my case dismissed with a civil compromise but the victim was not responding and so he switched gears and got my case to be Dismissed by DEJ which is very rare to get. Mr. Donath fought for me and won and that is the definition of a great lawyer. I honestly hope I wont need Mr. Donath's services again but if I make a stupid mistake and get in trouble with the law, then he is the first person I would go to. Hes also very student friendly and will work out a payment plan if needed!

Outstanding Service, I matters who you hire !
My son was facing a misdemeanor and we were very stressed and worried as this was the first time we were ever involved in a criminal situation. After meeting a handful of lawyers, I had found Attorrney Graham Donath , After he listened to our case, He politely answered our questions and walked us through the process of what we were facing and told us the best and worse case scenario,.. however neither of them were as bad as We had been told before meeting him. Both my son and I felt a huge sense of comfort after our meeting and new he was the one. Attorney Donath not only helped us by getting the case dropped but he made it happen before our court date. Best Possible Outcome! We can't thank Attorney Donath enough. As his website said,.. It Does matter who you hire !
