    Client Comments

    "Mr. O'Donnell is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of municipal law. He is very accessible, responds timely, and has excellent communication skills and knowledge."
    "Having been involved in the handling of liability claims for a little over 30 years, both with insurance companies and self-insured corporations, I have dealt with many lawyers, both domestic and foreign-based. Experiences have ranged from poor to excellent and this evaluation criterion is not based solely on the results obtained. It includes knowledge of the law, resourcefulness in the approach to the clients problem, the ability to extract the needed evidence through investigation/discovery, and, ultimately, proceeding with the strategy that best addresses your client's needs. Not all litigation is won or claims settled for desired amount, but the measure of good legal representation is that counsel addressed all the needed elements of the case effectively. In my dealings with David O'Donnell, he has clearly addressed all of the elements effectively and, therefore, the experience has been excellent."
