About Donald

Learn Donald’s areas of practice.

I have been working in Rhode Island as a civil trial attorney for the past thirty years. I spent my  first nine years working as a defense attorney for insurance companies, and have worked solely for personal injury victims since then. You will find that my bilingual staff and I firmly believe that hard work and close, ongoing contact with clients are essential to achieving the best results for them. ​As a solo practitioner, my office represents civil claimants and plaintiffs exclusively. We have settled, arbitrated and tried hundreds of civil matters, with excellent results. I will fight hard to win your case, and I don't get paid unless you , to set up your free consultation.

Thanks for everything
I've been going to Don for years, and he has been extremely helpful every time. He just handled a probate matter for my wife and I, even though I know he doesn't usually do that. Thanks again.

James V. Solis, Esq.
I found Attorney Woodbine both affable and at the same time very knowledgeable. Our subject matter involved the interaction between Medicare Recovery and Personal Injury Loss.

Excellent
My case was referred through another attorney (who I won't name). Donald handled it so well from start to finish. Would recommend any day.

I was a client of Mr. Woodbine's and I would recommend him
I was in a bad accident about four years ago. I actually needed to undergo surgery as a result, and although it was a difficult process, Mr. Woodbine handled every aspect of it very well. I was also denied by the insurance company involved, and just before the whole thing went to trial, Mr. Woodbine got me an excellent settlement which I was very happy with.

Very pleased.
I was referred to attorney Woodbine. He did a great job representing me, and I won a decent amount of $ after it was all done. He was great to work with.

Recommendation
Attorney Woodbine handled my auto/ injury case. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of my case. Thanks to Attorney Woodbine, I was extremely satisfied with the amount which allowed me to pay my bills, as well as time to recuperate appropriately. He is a kind and empathetic man.

Really nice patient and understanding lawyer. I would recommend Don to anyone.
I was a passenger in an accident where I was injured, And the other guy's insurance company didn't want to give me all the money I was entitled to. Don proved that he was fighting for me against them when we sat in his office and I Listened to him talking to them on the phone. He ended up arguing with them After they kept trying to say that I was not entitled to 100%, but I was a passenger! It took time but Don settled my case for more money than I initially though he would. He was spectacular, and I will go right back to him if I ever need a lawyer again.
