“Before I got injured I was a party to two lawsuits that were both sticky messes. Getting involved in another one made me wary, but Matt Donahue and his team maintained this case in a way that it didn’t become so heavy on me. At the end, we got the maximum policy amount. Matt and his firm are very good.”


I’ve known Matt Donahue since 2007 when he handled my first auto accident. He handled it with grace and the utmost care. Then when I was rear-ended again in 2015, the case was significantly more difficult, but he again, did the absolute best for me that anyone could ask for. This office is professional, timely and steadfast in their ability to get the job done. I now work with them from time to time on a professional level some days and they’ve never wavered. They work hard to make sure the system does not fail their clients. I would confidently recommend giving them a call if you’ve been involved in an accident.
