Laura did a great job representing me
When I was falsely accused by my boyfriends jealous ex-wife of harming their children, and only a week till court, Laura was quick to get everything in place argument and testimonies. Laura's opening argument was great, the judge agreed with us. I am glad I chose her to defend me. Laura's price was fair and she always was quick to get back with me if I had a question. She was great to work with.

All I can say is thank you so much. The Donahue Attorney's are a power couple who will go very far by helping the innocent.....
Laura did exactly what she needed to do and that was to protect my rights as a person. She kept me calm and got my case dismissed.

Best attorney ever
Laura is a very hard working attorney. She worked my case as if her own freedom depended on it (instead of just mine). She communicated every detail of the case and let me know of every update right away. We planned on going to trial so that’s what Laura prepared for. We did a focus group to determine what a typical jury would think. This was very helpful in continuing our preparation. In the end, and only because of her hard work, I accepted the deal of a lifetime so I didn’t have to go through a trial. Life is really looking up for me and it really is because of this attorney!!

Excellent Representation!
Laura Donahue worked diligently to provide an exceptional defense representation for my criminal case. Laura was able to successfully negotiate with the prosecutor, which substantially reduced my charges. My criminal charge was reduced to an infraction. I'm truly lucky to have found such generous, kind and mindful defense attorney. If you believe you are not getting proper representation, make sure you have a chat with Laura. Truly amazing.

Good Experience.
This is the second time I have had to work with a lawyer on a legal issue. The first time I went away hating all lawyers and feeling ripped off. But, these guys were great. They went above and beyond instead of just going through the motions. I felt like they at least cared enough to do their job, and were not out just to collect money. Which was amazing lol. Really all I want is to know my lawyer is working for me doing the best that can be done, win or lose. I would recommend these guys, and will in the future.

She’s the person you want by your side!
When I first met for my consultation I was feeling overwhelmed and confused about the charges I faced. I met with Laura and immediately knew I found the lawyer for me. I was educated on what was happening and felt like I finally had someone who was going to stand by me and get me through everything. She is kind and passionate about helping people, as well as educated with the tools and resources to help. She worked quickly and effectively to resolve my case always keeping my best interest in mind. She’s the person I’d call if I ever need legal assistance again.

I have never been in a predicament that involved law enforcement or the need to secure defense. However, like many others I found myself searching the web for the best representation that I could find. To my surprise, i came across Donahue Law. Laura and Pat Danahue are what I would consider my type of people. They know the law, they are understanding, they care and which get results! I hope to never need defense again! But if I do, I know who to call. I give Laura and Pat my highest recommendation and endorsement for your defense needs. Thank you both for your hard work on my case. It means more to me than you will ever know!
