Donahue & Associates offers a wide variety of client services and have successfully represented the interests of thousands of clients over the years.  Our practice includes extensive trial experience in state and federal courts, insurance defense, products liability, insurance coverage, workers’ compensation, construction, municipal liability, discrimination, civil rights, and much more.

Governmental Entities and Municipal Law: We have successfully defended all types of claims against small towns, cities and municipalities throughout Alabama.  This includes lawsuits against police officers, elected officials, mayors and firefighters.  It is an honor for us to be able to help people who put their lives on the line for the citizens of Alabama every day.

Insurance Defense: We represent companies that provide policy holders with financial protection against certain types of loss in cases involving general insurance defense, personal injury, homeowners’ claims, auto insurance and more.

Bad Faith Insurance: We handle bad faith insurance lawsuits where we represent insurance companies who have been accused of refusing a claim that the insurer may be legally obligated to pay, or have been accused of denying an insured’s claim without conducting a proper investigation.

Construction Defect Litigation: For more than a decade, Donahue & Associates has been representing contractors, subcontractors, builders, and owners in construction dispute and defect litigation. We have been involved in cases dealing with the construction or renovation of structures such as churches, colleges, hotels, and roadways. Our knowledgeable attorneys work closely with engineers, structural analysts, and construction experts to determine the source and causes of construction defects.

Products Liability: Products liability is a “hot bed” of litigation. As products liability litigation increases, so too do the stakes attached thereto. Suits are filed against manufacturers, assemblers, wholesalers, and retail store owners. Our clients have included domestic and foreign manufacturers, assemblers, wholesalers, and local retail store owners. We have been involved in cases alleging manufacturing defects, design defects, failure to warn, breach of warranty, and negligence. Aside from our trial work, our attorneys have provided consultations, supervisions, and oversight in the development and sale of various products.

Labor and Employment: Employers are faced with a conglomeration of state and federal laws in the operation of their businesses. Donahue & Associates attorneys are trained and experienced in labor and employment latter matters. We offer general advice regarding the hiring and termination policies as well as litigation defense for state and federal matters, including but not limited to Title VII and other discrimination claims. Our attorneys regularly deal with EEOC Complaints and other employment claims filed in court.

While we deal with the litigation aspect of a claim, we are also committed to assisting our clients in structuring and managing their businesses to avoid possible issues and/or complaints before they arise.

Workers’ Compensation Defense:  Workers’ Compensation claims vary from simple, undisputed damages only requiring court approval to complex matters of disputed liability and damages. The attorneys at Donahue & Associates pride themselves on their experience handling many different workers’ compensation claims and related issues. We provide clients with a thorough and honest analysis of settlement and litigation options, including resolution and the future implications of that resolution.

Our clients have included self-insureds, insureds, and third-party administrators.

We represent both insured and self-insured employers defending against Workers’ Compensation claims.  We provide you with a thorough and honest analysis of settlement and litigation options.  We represent your best interest at all times in settlement, litigation and on appeal.
