The Donahey Law Firm is one of the oldest personal injury law firms in central Ohio. Established in 1968, our mission has always been to help injured people obtain fair compensation for their pain and suffering. Our Attorneys at The Donahey Law Firm provide the attentive service you expect from a small-town lawyer, but our Ohio personal injury lawyers have the success and resources of a big-city law firm. If you were recently injured through the fault of another, leverage our knowledge to give your accident claim the best possible outcome. With over 50 years of personal injury experience and many multi-million dollar recoveries for our clients, our Columbus injury attorneys know exactly what it takes to get you and your family every dollar of compensation you deserve.

At The Donahey Law Firm, we represent clients who have been injured in a variety of ways.  Whether you’ve been injured in an automobile accident, at work, on another’s property, or somewhere else, our professional Columbus personal injury lawyers can help. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients to help them continue their lives. Our Columbus personal injury lawyers specialize exclusively in the rights and claims of injured individuals. We work for our clients on a contingency-only basis, so we can represent injured individuals who are unable to pay expensive, up-front legal fees.
