It was a difficult time but Brendan was a great advocate. My company didn’t even want to pay worker’s compensation, let alone my medical bills after breaking my back at work. The company did everything they could to make this process difficult but Brendan made it simple. He always responded to my questions and my settlement was reasonable. Very personable, always within contact.

I first met Brendan more than 15 years ago. His demeanor was always professional and his humor always appreciated. He made me feel like my case was a main priority. His background in Social Security and Worker’s compensation law was undeniably an asset.

Very thorough and aggressive representation. My family received the maximum policy limits from the insurance company.

I retained Brendan Donahue as an attorney while serving as an administrator of an estate and dealing with a wrongful death lawsuit. Brendon was responsible for bringing the suit to a satisfactory settlement. Throughout the three year period, Brendon was professional, helpful, and kept the estate informed. If I ever need an attorney in the future, Brendon Donahue will be my first call.
