Personal & Resourceful

With the Law Office of Joel F. Donahoe, you can be assured that your lead attorney will be fully involved in your legal matter and in continual contact. With many law firms, work is passed along to junior associates and paralegals, limiting interaction with your attorney and often increasing legal fees. This office prioritizes clear and consistent communication so that the legal services provided are always appropriate for your situation while staying within your financial expectations.
