About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

I've done a lot of things in my life.  I worked construction, farming and forestry before going to law school.  I graduated when I was 35. These life experiences make me a better lawyer because I understand my clients' needs when they are injured and in a jam. One of the greatest pleasures in my life is making multi-billion dollar insurance companies do what is right by my clients. I fight for my clients' rights everyday. Let me fight for you.

Simply the best!
Jeff came highly recommend to me by my trusted family law attorney after I had a serious and complicated auto accident. From the first meeting I felt immediate trust in Jeff and his team (the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with his equally brilliant daughter Mercedes who is also an attorney) and knew I was in more than capable hands and could focus solely on the intense recovery I had ahead of me. Jeff took the time to research all of the complexities which played a role in my case, and was appropriately aggressive without coming across as arrogant or rude. Jeff also made sure to keep my expectations tempered and I would say he under promised and over delivered, rightfully so in my case! Really stellar job, I'm shocked he doesn't have more reviews!!

December 20, 2017 Dear Jeff and Everyone, What words can I possibly use to express what is in my heart right now. I really lucked out the day Lorinda and I walked into your office. I would of never dreamed what had started out as a business relationship would develop into another “OHANA” (Family) for us. You all are wonderful people and an UNBELIEVABLE LAW FIRM!!! Jeff and Mercedes, without your deft skills, warm style, experienced perspective and your “NO BULLSHIT” attitude; Lorinda and I couldn’t have made it through the most difficult fight of my life and our relationship. You both are “rare gems” that we are very fortunate you were on our side! To Everyone; “Mahalo Nui Loa” (Thank you very much) for recognizing our feelings and needs every time I called or we came into your office. I definitely realize at times it wasn’t very easy for all of you. You all handled it with extreme grace! We both enjoyed the stories you shared with us, your constant reassurance and hard work. It has been truly a blessing to work with all of you! “Aloha nui loa” (Fondest regards) and “Mele Kalikimaka me ka Hau’oli Makahiki Hou” (Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year)! Kathleen Evans & Lorinda Flikkema

Great Attorney and Law Firm
I was in an automobile accident and injured my wrist. I received treatment for several months and when a new adjuster came on board to my case he denied my claims and called me a liar. I contacted Mr. Donchez and they handled everything from that point on. Professional, knowledgeable and worked hard to win a settlement in my case.I am grateful Mr. Donchez was on my side! I cannot say enough good things about Donchez Law Firm.

Jeff and his team did an excellent job keeping me informed throughout the entire process after my MVA. He was extremely empathetic to my needs from my injuries. Before each step, he made sure that my health and mental well being were of the utmost priority. His dedication and professionalism are impressive! I truly appreciate the fantastic customer service that I received.

Feeling cared for
I had known Jeff for years, and just lucky I guess that no injury situation ever came up. Well, my wife was rear ended not too long ago and the other insurance company started stalling and hemming and hawing and making noises like they thought we should just go away. I called Jeff, and got great advice right away, and put the case in his hands. The other insurance company has stopped hounding us and trying to get us to admit that nothing happened, and we are very happy to have Jeff taking care of us.
