Attorney Patrick Donovan represented me when I was charged with a criminal offense. I have never had a legal issue or even been in a courthouse. Mr. Donovan calmed my nerves, clearly explained legal process and what I should expect at hearings. He was accessible and promptly responded to my calls and questions. Most importantly he negotiated on my behalf and the charges were dismissed. I have no criminal record."
