About Donahue Defense

Donahue Defense is a North Carolina law firm dedicated to helping each client through his or her criminal or traffic matter.  We don’t focus on getting more clients, we focus on getting great results.  Our attorney and founder, Danny Donahue, is dedicated to defending people accused of North Carolina crimes in the following counties:

  • Dare
  • Camden
  • Currituck
  • Chowan
  • Perquimans
  • Pasquotank
  • Gates

These seven counties make up North Carolina’s 1st Judicial District.  Our district has one District Attorney who is aided in prosecuting crimes by 10 assistant DAs.  We have five district court judges who rotate throughout all seven counties and preside over juvenile and misdemeanor/traffic criminal courts.  Our two resident superior court judges preside over felony matters when they are assigned to this district during a term of court and often “outside” superior court judges “visit” during terms.

Donahue Defense also handles federal crimes in the Eastern District of North Carolina.  The Eastern District is comprised of a much larger region which includes federal courts in:

  • Wilmington
  • Greenville
  • New Bern
  • Fayetteville
  • Raleigh
  • Elizabeth City

If you are facing a criminal or traffic offense in “our neck of the woods” then you are welcomed to give us a call to discuss whether we’re the right fit for your case.
