I had a complicated case and I contacted Attorney Patrick Donovan. He was highly responsive to my calls and was very diligent in dealing with the case.We got a great and fair result. Very happy with service from start to finish.Will keep recommending him when the need arises.
When I was accused of an unsubstantiated accusation, every other attorney of reasonable price range provided me with very limited options and tenuous resolutions.Their attitudes were dismissive and pessimistic in reference to my case. They offered very little hope and very lame solutions.Patrick, on the other hand was both energetic and reasonably optimistic. He provided actual solutions with actual positive impact.He was very strategic, methodical and proactive throughout the process. He was eventually able to win my case with detail oriented argument, investigation and tactful reasoning, however the positive case result was 2nd to his attitude.While other lawyers reacted to my case with disdain and non-concern, Patrick stepped up and put some god given effort into both strategy and resolve. At the end, he helped beat my DUI case.I would recommend him over anyone in the greater Boston area.
From the start Attorney Donovan eased my anxiety about my hit and run with property damage charge. He explained how the process in court works, and what to expect. He met with me the Sunday before my hearing and thoroughly explained everything and gave me a chance to ask lingering questions. He never made me feel stupid and always made himself available. Very prompt, nice, smart, and real. He got my charge dropped and I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. I would recommend Patrick Donovan to anyone with traffic ticket issues. Thank you so much! 🙂 -Sara
Patrick Donovan is the Best! I was charged with OUI and negligent operation of a vehicle, and my license was suspended. My Brother found Patrick on line after reading Patrick’s reviews. He then hired Patrick to represent me. Patrick responded immediately. Patrick was able to clearly defined my position and my options. Based on what I had learned, I decided to use him to represent me in a Bench Trial. In upcoming weeks Patrick prepared me for the Bench Trial and was always available if I had questions. The OUI charges were dismissed without a Trial. The suspension on my Driver’s License was lifted, and I was up and driving the next day. Patrick set the stage for success and restored my life. I am truly grateful.
Patrick provided excellent representation during my serious, challenging case. I was wrongly charged with a felony offense, and Patrick helped secure the most favorable outcome possible, in which I will have no criminal record, did not admit guilt. He promptly and thoroughly responds to queries and always made it to court on time and prepared. I know that I had many fears and apprehensions going into this process dealing with our justice system but Patrick helped assuage those fears along the way. Great attorney and great guy overall - I highly recommend him!
Attorney Donovan was nothing but professional. I had come to Patrick a bit over a year ago with a case in which he had helped me win. I was proven innocent of the accused offense. Thanks to the thorough investigation and evidence used to defend me I’m able to say that Patrick definitely reviews his cases carefully case by case. He will recommend the best choices and guide your decisions. If you would like someone who won’t give empty promises this is your man.
I would like to thank Patrick for his excellent work! He handled my case with confidence and was very thorough. He had a plan from the beginning and walked me through it to the end.
Patrick did a great job for me in May 2017. He did what he had promised and the result was as good as it could have been. I would use him again.
My experience with Patrick is that he is a true professional and one of the most effective lawyers I have ever come across. When it is go time at court, he is prepared, speaks with a dominant voice, and gets the best results possible for his clients. He is in high demand and is busy but gets back to his clients in a timely manner. I highly recommend Patrick and also recommend him to friends going through any issues.
Professional, and honest.
Patrick is knowledgeable in his profession, to install certainty you can receive the best possible outcome.
Patrick did a great job for our family on a clerk magistrate hearing. He delivered a great result and we couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.
Attorney Donovan is very insightful, decisive, and honest. Moreover, when I called him even at late hours, I still receive an immediate respond. Attorney Donovan cares for the client's needs and works to get the most wanted results. I recommend you to call him now if you find yourself in need of a lawyer.
Very responsive, even on Sunday afternoon. Quick, free consultation.
Prior to returning to the Military in 1990, I had some legal issues in the Plymouth District Court that remained open with 5 active criminal warrants for the last 24+ years. I am now 58 years old and have lived in the Tampa Bay area since exiting the Military. Recently and due to modern technology I was not able to renew my Florida Driver's License until I cleared up my legal issues in Mass. so that my Mass. driving privileges could be restored (Mass. License was suspended for failure to appear). Plus I have been carrying this monkey on my back for so many years and always feared getting pulled over and those old Mass. warrants popping up. I contacted Patrick Donovan's office the 1st weekend of August 2015. He immediately put the wheels in motion for me. I flew to Mass. the 3rd week of August, walked into court with Mr. Donovan and within 4-hours had all 5 warrants recalled and 4 of the cases dismissed. The 5th case was filed improperly by the Plymouth County Clerk of Court/DA's office so it had to be set for another date. Mr. Donovan got my appearance requirement waived so I wouldn't have to spend another $1000 for airfare, hotel and other traveling expenses. On Oct 16th - 2015, that case was also dismissed. A BIG thank you to Patrick. I would also like to comment on the efficient online communication Patrick has set up - very cool and very convenient.
If your in need of a lawyer I highly recommend Patrick Donovan. Fantastic Attorney. Had a great outcome with my case. Thank you Patrick.
I am from Mass and now live out of State. I had some issues that I had to clear up in order to get my License reinstated in my current state. Attorney Donovan was extremely helpful in making me feel comfortable he would be able to help me given my unique situation. He is very thorough and detailed in his information process ensuring "No stone was left unturned" so we had our bases covered when we walked into court. My only regret was I wish I had hired him years ago! Great guy and even better Attorney. Highly recommend using him in any situation.
My Boyfriend and I needed an experienced attorney, we were facing a very confusing and difficult situation and we decided to go with Patrick. His expertise and professional approach to our case not only eventually led to a successful outcome in our case but made the whole process less stressful. I would recommend Patrick to anyone seeking professional counsel from a criminal defense lawyer.
Called Attorney Donovan immediately after being involved in an accident in which I was driving a vehicle without an interlock ignition device. It was 7AM and I left a message with his answering service and never expected a call back, especially not within five minutes. I have 2 OUI's and was aware of the mandatory jail time associated with driving a vehicle without an interlock device. When he promptly returned my call he was calm, reassuring, and brutally honest while remaining sensitive to the situation and extremely professional. His advice was followed precisely to the very last word. Not only was I not arrested, but I was not given a ticket or summons to appear in court. If not for his rapid response & spot on advice; I would be spending at least the next six months of my life incarcerated.
After 18 long months of court appearances, we ended with a successful outcome! Attorney Donavan utilized our time wisely to truly understand my case. I could not have asked for a more committed person to represent me. Thank you again
Patrick Donovan recently represented me at a magistrate's hearing. He was very professional, explained his plan and achieved a favorable outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing a good advocate.
I contacted Attorney Donovan shortly after I received a summons for an arraignment. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts had charged me with a serious felony, and misdemeanor which carried lasting consequences.Mr. Donovan discussed a plan of action with me that seemed simple and effective. Mr. Donovan represented me multiple times in court, as the prosecution insisted on continuances. My second appearance in court resulted in the felony charge being dismissed. Mr. Donovan was obviously instrumental in the aforementioned dismissal, pointing out the lack of evidence, the "trumped-up" nature of the charge, etc.By my fourth appearance in court, a restraining order had been filed against me, in relation to the charges. Mr. Donovan fought for a dismissal of the misdemeanor charge, and was ultimately successful. Mr. Donovan then managed to expertly defend me in regards to the temporary restraining order. He questioned the plaintiff, and caught her in multiple lies. He requested that the restraining order not be extended, which the Judge agreed with. Ultimately, I walked away that day with exactly what I wanted, dismissal of all charges I had no criminal involvement in, and no restraining order.Overall, Mr. Donovan is everything I could ask for from an attorney. He provided expert legal defense, excellent advice, and was always available. Whenever I needed to speak with him, I was able to get in touch with him within 5-10 minutes, if not immediately. He maintained a pleasant demeanor and always had a positive attitude. His fee was extremely reasonable, especially given the amount of time and effort my case ended up requiring. I would recommend Patrick Donovan to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney. Please consider him, you won't be sorry!
Violation of an Abuse Prevention Order I was charged with violating restraining order that required I should not abuse my wife. My wife called the police and told them I was not letting her in the bedroom and that I pushed her and tried to have unwanted sex with her. Case was tried before a judge and the judge found the client NOT GUILTY.
Case Dismissed!!!! Attorney Donovan was awesome handling my daughters case. She is a college student and was caught drinking in a bar and used a fake ID! He kept me calm as well as my daughter. He was very professional and explained the process to us. He and my daughter went to court without me, I trusted him enough that I knew my daughter was in great hands! After the hearing I received a call from my relieved daughter that her case was dismissed! 10 minutes later I got a call from Attroney Donovan as well explaining the outcome! We are very grateful for his help in this situation and I have to say he was very affordable for the case he handled! I would highly recommend him!
"Thank You Patrick T. Donovan" Patrick Donovan is one of the best lawyers around period. I was arrested for Felony OUI in Cape Cod, scared and overwhelmed I contacted Patrick Donovan. Attorney Donovan made me feel comfortable from our first conversation. Attorney Donovan walked me through the process and possible outcomes which ranged from 15 month in jail and a Felony conviction. Patrick T. Donovan was able to settle my case without a Felony conviction and minimum Jail time. Throughout my case attorney Donovan kept me informed about my case and was always available to answer any questions I had. Attorney Donovan is one of the best lawyers around and was the best choice I made. Thank you Patrick T. Donovan R.G
Thank you Patrick! Attorney Patrick Donovan is the one you want to go with, without hesitation! From our first meeting, he was prepared and gave me solid advice and SOLID representation. You just know you're in good hands...anytime I had a question for him throughout the process, he was extremely responsive and knowledgeable. I feel I received the best representation possible and I'm very grateful I met Patrick Donovan. In addition to being a defense attorney, he is a former ADA so he knows the court system from both sides which is why I wanted to hire him initially....smart move!
Great attorney! Attorney Donovan handled two cases for my family in a skillful and professional manner. I would recommend Mr. Donovan for any legal cases as he was knowledgeable, honest, and he achieved the best possible outcome for both cases.
A Great Source for Advice and Help!! Patrick had great advice, his fee was reasonable, he was easy to work with, and he got the exact result desired. Highly recommended!
Quick and pain free I used Attorney Donovan in a unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle case where I missed the court date and had an arrest warrant. He was responsive and took all the pressure off of me. He knew his stuff and when I got to the court house with him it was clear he was connected in the Boston system and within an hour and a half I was out all charges dropped. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!
Domestic Violence Case Dismissed My girl friend had an anger outburst and falsely accused me of domestic violence. Even though I did not commit any violence either physically or verbally, the police still took her statement seriously and set an unusually high bail for me to get out of jail. The DA also seemed to want pursue the case hard. Mr. Donovan used the best strategy to defend me, and in end (4 months later) the judge simply dismissed the case. I would recommend Mr. Donovan for anyone who needs a good lawyer in similar situations.
Top Notch Lawyer...Well Informed! I was extremely impressed and overall happy with Attorney Donovan's experience and knowledge with my matters. His words made me feel comfortable and secure that I was in good hands. I did not feel like I was being sold on a "sales pitch." What he said is what we got. I definitely will come back to him in the future if need be, and would recommend him to anyone that is in search of legal advice.
Great representation!! Patrick T. Donovan took my case on very short notice and made my process as smooth as possible. Never got in trouble until one bad night out in Boston a few years ago. Mr. Donovan was confident he could get me the best possible outcome and he delivered. He kept me informed and at ease throughout the process. He went above and beyond when I recently contacted him to get some facts of the case for a background check I had to do. He took time out of his busy schedule to quickly get this information to me. Do not hesitate to let Mr. Donovan represent you.
Not responsible for Failure to obey, Failure to stop, Speeding. I was stopped by a state police officer in a routine traffic stop where criminal charges were brought against me. I signed Patrick as counsel after a terrible experience with another attorney. Patrick took my case on a reasonable flat fee basis and I was found not responsible for all charges against me, including a speeding infraction. Patrick is an empathetic and helpful person and a fantastic attorney, I would recommend him to anyone with civil or criminal charges against them. His communication with clients is excellent, he sets the proper expectations for results and his office is friendly and helpful when you do need to get in touch with Patrick.
DUI Case Patrick Donovan was an amazing attorney during my DUI case. He was always completely honest about possible outcomes and there to guide me during my fight. He took his time to carefully go over all the details to know which direction we should proceed in and never failed to answer any questions or doubts I had. Patrick Donovan is a very courteous, respectable and humorous attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Great lawyer! Great lawyer, knew the legal system up and down. Was able to negotiate an incredibly good deal with the DA for my case.
amazing lawer Patrick Donovan was a great lawyer. He was very knowledgeable and kept me informed throughout my case. He was willing to go the extra mile. I would definatly recommend him. He was amazing in court.
OVERALL PERFORMANCE I KNOW I CAN SPEAK ON BEHALF OF MY SON AND MYSELF, THAT ATTY. DONOVAN WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND HIS CALL OF DUTY FOR MY SON. HE IS A COMPASSIONATE PERSON AND WORKS TOWARDS A FAIR AND JUST OUTCOME. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A LAWYER. THANKS ATTY. DONOVAN!
Great Experience Hiring Mr. Donovan I'm a private investigator and consequently have had a lot of contact with many different attorneys on a wide range of matters. Pat Donovan was easily one of the easiest ones with whom I've worked. He found a creative solution to my problem and got me the result I wanted. And he did it at a reasonable price, even at one point dissuading me from taking him with me to court for one aspect of my case so I could save his fee. And he kept me in the loop throughout he whole process, picking up my call or calling me back soon every time I called him. I highly recommend him.
Mr. Patrick is the best! Mr. Patrick Donovan helped me during a situation that I should not have been involved in, and where other people were lying. He worked with the court and got the whole matter squared away and I have not been in trouble since. He is the best
