5.0 stars 24 totalReview Damien Donnelly-Cole
Posted by Curtis
I recently found out about a charge against me with a warrant when it showed up on a background check. The ticket issuing officer waited almost a year to file the ticket, and the charges were increased to a felony due to my not appearing for the court date I didn't know about. My employer only gave me two weeks to take care of the situation before their corporate legal department advised I'd need to be terminated. I called a number of lawyers offices before coming across Damien Donnelly Cole. In each call I had to explain my entire situation to one of the lawyers disinterested assistants or receptionist only for them to tell me that the case couldn't be handled in that time frame or that they weren't interested in assisting me. When I called Damien's office it was a totally different experience. He personally answered the phone and not only did Damien legitimately sound like he cared, he said he would do what he could to wrap up the case within the specified time frame. Damien did everything he said he would do by the time he said he would consistently. He kept in touch throughout the entire process, never pushed me to make decisions that would cost me more (as most other lawyers often do in my experience) and he was pleasant and considerate when answering any questions I had (and there were many) throughout the entire ordeal. Damien not only took care of my case, he managed to get my charges reduced. He completed this at a reasonable price and in as timely of a manner as this particular court would allow. Damien kept all of our conversations professional and maintained a great attitude throughout. He has been understanding of my financial situation and was willing to set up a more than reasonable payment plan for the reminder of the balance I owe and that he earned every penny of. I am extremely grateful that I found Damien to assist with my situation and I highly recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance in the state of Oregon.

Damien is a very professional attorney and one that genuinely cares about his client’s well-being. Damien kept me informed about my case the entire time, fully advising me about all available options while providing a realistic picture of the situation. He did everything he could to help me out of a most difficult situation. I was truly fortunate to have found him and would not hesitate to recommend Damien to anyone in trouble and needing assistance.

Damien was conscientious, and helped greatly with special needs that I have. My experience would have been a nightmare without him. I am so appreciative, and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone!

I was driving on I-5 when I was a victim of road rage. After being chased and ultimately hit by this other driver I stopped to get help from a Multnomah sheriff's deputy who proceeded to charge both of us with several diving related crimes. This is when I hired Damien. Over the next few months Damien worked tirelessly to get my changes droped. Despite several obstacles with the Multnomah County prosecutor's office and an unreasonable prosecuting attorney Damien through his knowledge and persistence got all of my charges dropped. Damian is an outstanding attorney who I would not hesitate to use him in the future. If you need a attorney I highly recommend Damien

Damien Donnelly-Cole reinstilled hope to my family and myself through overwhelming odds. Damien is proactive, tactical, efficient, and his methods are amazing. To say he's knowledgeable is a serious understatement. Mr. Donnelly-Cole is a prodigy and wizard in his field.

I had an outstanding DUI charge I needed resolved. I reached out to Damien after he came highly recommended on Avvo. Being in another state it was important to me that I work with someone who was easy to communicated with. Damien was honest about how he could help my situation, and worked diligently to help get my issue resolved quickly. He was always available to update me on how things were moving along, and was able to work out a favorable outcome for my situation. I would highly recommend Damien to anyone who is in need of legal services.

I had a third DUII ten years ago lost my drivers license as a permanent revocation. I was told that after ten years I could petition the court and maybe be able to drive again. It is my understanding that I am one of VERY FEW that have been able to do this thus far.....So at the end of ten years I was ready to do this. I didn't have lots of cash and was thinking of trying to do this on my own with no experience in these matters. I was having troubles filing papers getting and started so I started calling lawyers for advise looking for someone to consult with, still thinking I would do this myself. After talking to Damien on the phone more than once, I found someone that seemed to really care and want to help me. He gave me some good advise on the phone, more that anyone else would. The more I thought about it I decided to have Damien represent me in my case. I must say the best money I spent in years. Damien was not only easy to talk to but made me feel comfortable that he truly had MY best interest in mind. Damien not only called myself when he said he would he also contacted my witnesses that were willing to give testimony in my case when he said he would. I had good feed back from my witnesses , they all made comment on how easy Damien was to talk with and that he seemed to have my interested in mind and how professional he was . I never once felt that I was just a number or my case wasn't important. I got quick favorable results with Damien S Donnelly-Cole !!!! I feel that he is one of the best if not the best attorney I have had to deal with... sad to say I have to deal with a few... I would look for him again if needed...NOT PLANNING ON IT THOUGH

STRONGLY recommend this law firm.
Mr Donnelly-Cole has been extraordinary in my case. His defense counsel work and understanding of the law has been absolutely top notch.
Additionally, he is not just highly professional, but very personable. Will return to him to hire in the future as well. He has helped me, vigorously, at every stage.

I have never had to hire a defense attorney in the past, but I have served on several juries. I was often appalled at the shoddy representation provided by some of the lawyers I saw in action.
When my son, Eric, needed an attorney, he asked for my help in selecting one. We did our homework before contacting Damien, but we were still concerned that Eric’s future relied on the expertise and professionalism of someone who was virtually unknown to us.
We both agree that Damien performed above and beyond our expectations. He clearly and concisely outlined for us how Eric’s case would move through the legal system, and the most likely outcomes at each stage. The case progressed exactly as he projected. In meetings with the prosecution and the judge, Damien was prepared, resourceful and professional. In our experience he always had anticipated their questions and positions in advance of the meetings and hearings, and was well prepared to continue moving the case towards an exceptional final resolution.
In addition to providing outstanding representation and sound advice, Damien was exceptionally responsive and conscientious. He made every effort to be accessible despite his other obligations. He thoughtfully answered all of our questions, no matter how trivial or repetitive they were.
Finally, even though Damien would have made a lot more money had the case gone to trial, he negotiated an excellent and early resolution to the case. He then refunded a significant portion of the retainer.
Hopefully neither of us ever will need representation again, but if we do, we will not hesitate before contacting Damien.

Damien provided excellent council before, during and after my DUII court court case. Prior to court he provided detailed information regarding how the process worked. He answered my many questions clearly and made sure I correctly understood the likely outcomes of the different options available.
He also explained in detail the process that would occur the day of court and attended with me. This was very helpful as the process moves fast without much explanation of what you are supposed to do.
His follow up afterwards was also quite thorough. He made clear he available to help resolve any follow issues that cropped up. All in all, I was very comfortable working with him and would recommend him without reservation.
