Civil and Corporate Law
Attorney Donovan has litigated and tried scores of complex commercial and civil disputes. Whether you are in the midst of an employment dispute, or your company is required to prosecute or defend a difficult commercial contract claim, trade secret matter, or construction/contractor dispute, it is critical that you and your company retain an attorney who knows how to protect your rights and argue your case before a jury or judge who will ultimately decide your future. When deciding who will represent you, or your loved ones, ask the attorney how many cases like yours he has brought to trial, what verdicts did he or she achieve, and what costs can you expect. If the attorney cannot answer these questions directly, that attorney probably lacks the experience and knowledge to obtain the results you need.
