Client Testimonials

"I went through a difficult medical condition because of a car accident and was very skeptical about seeking legal help. I didn't need additional stress. A concerned family member referred me to Donovan with high regard. So I made the decision to have him speak for me. With reassuring words, "Just get yourself well" Donovan kindly took control of my worries from car repairs, doctor and insurance claims to an excellent settlement. It turned out to be the best thing I have done for myself in a while. What a relief to be in the care of such a reputable lawyer."

After calling around (being put on hold for long periods of time and being told that I'll receive a call back by multiple firms), I then called Plaza Injury law and finally received the counsel I was needing. Mr. Dodrill was very direct, informative and helped me receive the amount that my claim was worth. I'm very pleased with the communication and results Plaza Injury Law gave me."
