Donahue Fitzgerald LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: I would encourage people to not gossip so much in the office. While admittedly some of the industry gossip was interesting it could be distracting. I would also hire an extra IT person or two. It would help keep the computers running making everyone work better.

Pros: I have worked on a lot of interesting cases. The work is challenging and there is some expectation of being independent. I liked that aspect and have really thrived. Even though there is an expectation of experienced attorneys being independent, junior associates are mentored well.

Cons: Sometimes the gossip got out of hand. A lot of it was industry gossip but I found it annoying at times even if I contributed to it. Also the IT support can be lackluster which can slow down workflow.

Overview

In 1883 Robert M. Fitzgerald opened his legal practice, making our firm the oldest continuing law firm in the entire state of California. Over the next 30 years, Mr. Fitzgerald formed a partnership with colleagues Carl H. Abbott and Charles A. Beardsley. In 1918 Judge William H. Donahue resigned from his position as Alameda County Superior Court Judge and William H.L. Hynes resigned as Alameda County District Attorney and founded the firm Donahue and Hynes. The two firms would later join forces to continue a strong history of legal excellence and community service.
