    I would like to thank Michael for all he did for me, I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a workers compensation lawyer. He was able to get me the care I needed in a timely manner, this was the first time I dealt with workers comp. and if it wasn't for Michael's help I might be permanently disabled at this time. He really does care about his clients and what is best for them. Thanks Mike.

    Never thinking I would ever need the services of being represented by a Lawyer it happened. I can not fully express in words the extent of compassion, understanding and professionalism that I received by Michael O'Donnell and his entire office. I hope I will never need services like this again but if I do I would put myself in their hands as well as suggest their services to anyone in need.

    I highly recommend Michael O'Donnell. His quality of service is thorough, never leaving my questions or concerns unanswered. He responded to emails and calls in a timely manner. Throughout the duration of my case I never had to make a second call or email. His timing is very prompt. Michael represented me effectively by standing up for what is right, not allowing the insurance company to treat me with disdain. O'Donnell law is the team you want on your side. Michael O'Donnell is A-1 in my book.
