Testimonials

Case dismissed! Professional and worked with my budget. Would recommend!

- Max W.

From the moment I contacted Donahue Law Firm I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff. Their office stayed in constant contact with me regarding the details of my case. I was also impressed that Mr. Donahue was able to have my ticket reduced to a much lighter charge. I definitely recommend Donahue Law Firm to anyone needing legal services.

- Michael H.

The people at Donahue law firm were very professional and courteous. Once I made my payment online, Dan Donahue contacted me promptly. Once I explained my situation he was able to easily explain to me exactly how the process would work. Dan Donahue is a man of great integrity! He could have simply taken my payment and went to court and paid what was owed, instead he fought to have my fine reduced from 86mph in a 60mph, to 69mph in a 60mph zone. His actions saved me hundreds of dollars in fines. It is with great pleasure that I strongly recommend the Donahue law firm.

I am an out of state driver that visits the Currituck County area primarily during the summer. I received a speeding ticket during a recent and faced a court date. I contacted Donahue and explained how I was unable to see the changes in the speed limit due to the poor visibility. From the moment I contacted Donahue, I received the quality legal representation. Ultimately, Donahue worked aggressively on behalf to obtain a favorable outcome in response to my speeding violation. I am more than pleased with the services received from Donahue and I highly recommend them.

Dan Donahue is an outstanding lawyer! His effort to win your case knows no bounds. I retained his services after I was stopped for a DUI in February of 2017. Through his efforts, Dan was able to secure a complete dismissal of the charges! Dan is a clients lawyer and truly has your best interest at heart. I highly recommend Dan for legal assistance should you find yourself requiring a lawyer.

I highly recommend Daniel Donahue, he is absolutely amazing! I received 2 citations for an accident on the Outer banks. I clipped 2 vehicles that stopped abruptly in front of me on a wet road while pulling a 30 ft. RV. I couldn’t stop in time, I veered off the road to the right to avoid hitting the vehicles, my vehicle jackknifed and the RV hit both anyway. My vehicle rolled onto the driver’s side facing the opposite direction and came to a stop with the RV on top of it. All vehicles involved were totaled but thankfully no injuries. I received 2 traffic citations for Failure to maintain my lane and Failure to stop. I contacted Mr. Donahue’s office, explained the events of the accident and citations. Mr. Donahue made an offer to represent me in court regarding the 2 citations. His offer was very reasonable so I immediately retained his services. After a couple of continuances waiting for the insurance companies to settle, Mr. Donahue represented me in court where he was able to have the citations dismissed with nothing else required. That is the absolute best outcome I could have hoped for and did not expect based on my driving record and the accident. If I ever had to go to traffic court in Dare County I would not hesitate to use or recommend Mr. Donahue’s service. I can’t thank him enough for representing me in court over this matter.

I highly recommend Donahue Criminal Defense! My son spent a week in South Carolina after graduation. The kids got into some trouble. I was at a lost and did not know what to do. To top it off, we live in another state. My son was getting ready to start college, has never been in trouble before. I did not want his future ruined because of an irresponsible choice. Another parent recommended Daniel Donahue. I reached out to him. Daniel was quick to respond. He and his wife Michele were extremely responsive through the whole process. As a matter of fact, they took control. I did not have to go back to SC. A huge weight was lifted . At the end, Daniel Donahue had the charge dismissed. What a blessing! Every parent wishes their kids will always make good choices. But when they don’t, it’s good to know there are people who understand and will help you get them back on track. I hope my son learned his lesson and I hope this review will help any future parent who find themselves in the position I was in. Thank you Daniel Donahue!

Mr. Donahue was amazing! He fully helped me with my situation. I was out of state, him and his staff kept me fully aware of everything every step of the way. I highly recommend him for any issues.

- Alex Lyons

I had a great experience. November 2018 I received a citation for excessive speed that I couldn’t take care of online since the stated speed was too high. I live in Oregon which meant I was expected to either go to court or employ a lawyer. Thanks to Donahue defense, who clearly represented me and my clean driving record in the most positive sense, the accusation was reduced to an ordinance violation rather than a moving violation. This far exceeded my expectations. Thank you!!!

- Ken Lie

Daniel was very helpful and successful assisting with my situation. He delivered quickly where others had failed. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone needing successful resolution in a timely matter. Daniel seemed to have the necessary local relationships and respect to get things done.

- Thomas Bookhamer

I just wanted to take moment to let everyone know what a great experience I had recently with the Donahue Law Firm. My granddaughter had been stopped for speeding on her way back home from Virginia. A search of her vehicle was conducted, and some drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana was found. The Donahue Law Firm took on this challenge and, in the end, the charges were dismissed. But it gets better. I also asked them if they could work to get my granddaughter’s record expunged of the charges since this had been her first offensive and her career in the medical field depended on that. Once again, the Donahue firm was successful. I highly recommend Mr. Donahue and his team. They take the time to understand your situation and they work hard on your behalf. Thank you.

- Chuck

The Donahue firm was an excellent choice and I would highly recommend Daniel Donahue to anyone who needs to hire a lawyer in the North Carolina area. He was very professional and kept us up to date on the case and was great about answering questions and guiding us during this process. His wife who is his secretary was as well wonderful to deal with and if you called the office she was knowledgeable and kind and took care of any concerns that you may have had. Definitely would recommend.

- Dianne

My son and I knew after our phone consultation that we wanted to hire Mr. Donahue to support our case. Daniel was upfront when detailing the process and made us feel like we could take a breath, because he has the experience and knowledge to present your case! We did not expect the outcome we received and highly recommend using this firm to assist you with your legal issue. Thank you so very much for all you did for us.

My experience with Mr. Donahue was nothing short of exceptional. He accepted my case and explained all of the possible outcomes as well as put my mind at ease. Though my case was not a severe one, I have always believed that it is best to have legal representation even for a speeding ticket. Mr. Donahue takes great pride in his profession and represents his clients to the great ability he can offer. As a side note the outcome of my case was far better then I expected “FAR BETTER” I would highly recommend Mr. Donahue for any legal representation needed.
