Our mission is
defending your rights


Patrick E. Donovan, Esq. earned his bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College in 1986, and his law degree from Boston College Law School in 1990. He formerly worked as a law clerk for the NH Supreme Court before joining the Boston firm of Goodwin Proctor as a litigation associate.  In 1994, Attorney Donovan was appointed to the NH Department of Justice where he became a Senior Assistant AG in the DWI Section and the Homicide Unit, as a lead trial attorney.  In 2000, Attorney Donovan returned to private practice and opened his own firm, specializing in criminal, civil and commercial litigation and trial services.  While in private practice, Attorney Donovan also served as House Counsel to the NH House of Representatives.


Attorney Patrick Donovan can help you, or your loved one, should you need an aggressive and experienced trial lawyer. His varied experiences, as a prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and trial attorney, provide a diverse base of knowledge and relationships that allows Donovan Law to resolve and litigate criminal matters, as well as complicated business and commercial disputes. Donovan Law will protect your rights and also assist you in recovering damages as a result of a car accident or other personal injury claims.


Patrick Donovan believes it is not only his ethical duty, but his mission, to protect and vigorously defend his clients’ rights, to the full extent of the law with integrity, passion and responsibility. Trials and litigation can be costly and time consuming, regardless of whether you find yourself facing daunting criminal charges or complex civil or commercial dispute.

I make it my practice to discuss and advise clients as to the costs associated with any case, and endeavor to provide them with a cost-effective arrangement that will successfully resolve their problems. Typically, clients come to me at their darkest and most desperate hour. Navigating the court system can be a daunting and intimidating experience, but the costs of hiring a tough, aggressive, experienced and knowledgeable advocate should not require financial ruin.
