I had developed a fairly serious legal issue several months ago and was referred to Jim by a colleague of his. I initially consulted with him and agreed to a retainer for defense of my rather hefty charge. Jim was a consummate professional every step of the way, whether it was always making himself available for discussion at times that may have been inconvenient, or keeping me in the loop as to developments, all the while speaking to me as a person, rather than as a defendant. What could have potentially been very serious penalties levied against me ultimately ended up becoming rather innocuous, but it would not have been possible without Jim's assistance. Reflecting on the matter as a whole, I have no regrets regarding working with him and he comes with my highest recommendation.

I reached out to Jim Donohue after waiting 6 months for my waterfront pass. Jim managed to assist me in getting my pass within a few weeks after hiring him. He consistently kept in contact with me and kept me up to date on any information he had gotten. He was always available if I ever needed to contact him. Overall I was extremely pleased with the outcome and speed in which he executed. I would highly recommend him for anyone in a similar position.

Mr. James Donohue is an extremely efficient and personable lawyer. Due to unfortunate circumstances we met as he was a referral to assist with my DUI case. He was kind enough to meet with me on a Saturday due to my work schedule and took the time to really go over the potential consequences of my actions, as well as make me feel comfortable during an already nerve wrecking situation. He was able to answer any of my questions promptly and kept in touch in between court dates to follow up and see how I was doing. He sent friendly reminders of my court dates which took place in Rutherford municipal court, and enabled me to make peace with my actions, understanding the gravity of the situation. He explained the best case scenario as well as the worst case scenario of the outcome of the DUI. Luckily, with the recommendations of the expert he suggested I hire he was able to get my breathalyzer test results thrown out due to technical issues. He pleaded my case to the prosecutor before both court dates. I am extremely fortunate to have hired him as luckily, the outcome of my court case was the best case scenario. I was penalized with a license suspension of 3 months, fees, and subject to take two six hour IRDC. Even post court dates, he has followed up with me several times to ensure I am doing well and on track to obtain my license back in three months which I greatly appreciate. I highly recommend him and the firm he works in to anyone who may need a lawyer.
I strongly endorse this lawyer. I have known Jim Donohue for over 25 years on a professional level. I first met him when we were both young lawyers and he was my trial team supervisor. Even as a young lawyer, Jim was incredibly competent and always achieved great results. Over the years he has become a well respected trial attorney who continues to get excellent results. He has a keen ability to assess the strengths and weaknesses of a case. He is intelligent, logical, well prepared and extremely thorough. These qualities make him both a skilled negotiator and litigator. He has a wealth of experience in the practice of criminal law both in and out of the courtroom. His work ethic and ability to get along with other attorneys has earned him an incredible reputation. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim Donohue on any type of criminal matter whether it is in municipal, superior or federal court. Any client would be lucky to have such an honest and trustworthy attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Jim Donohue for 29 years. He is one of the finest litigators I have had the privilege to see in action. His knowledge of criminal law is superior and his court room skills are exceptional. Jim has handled countless criminal cases with an extraordinary record of success. He his reasonable in trying to resolve a case but is not afraid to take a matter to trial. Once at trial Jim is a fierce advocate. One of the skills I admire most about Jim is his ability to cross examine a witness, which is one of the most challenging endeavors a trial attorney must face. I have had many of his adversaries he has faced in the court room comment to me that Jim is one of the most prepared and competent attorneys that they have had to litigate against. Lastly, Jim is a fair and decent man who has the respect of not only those in the legal community but of his friends and family. He has shown that he is someone that can be counted on when the going is tough!
