Donahue Fitzgerald LLP was founded in 2014 with the merger of two of California's oldest law firms, Donahue Gallagher Woods LLP and Fitzgerald Abbott & Beardsley LLP.

We conduct a diversified civil practice from three strategically located Bay Area offices in Oakland, Walnut Creek, and Mill Valley. With more than fifty attorneys, we provide a full range of civil legal services across a broad spectrum of areas of expertise.

Our transactional, real property, franchise, and intellectual property attorneys have the in-depth experience and knowledge to assist with all your business needs, including matters related to start-ups, securities, employees, real property, commercial leases, copyrights, trademarks, licenses, nonprofits, and land use. On a daily basis, our litigators tackle and successfully resolve complex disputes involving business contracts, copyright and trademark infringement, software piracy, wrongful termination claims, employment discrimination, insurance coverage, construction disputes, and administrative law matters. We also provide a full range of trust and estates services, including designing individually crafted estate planning strategies, advising estate administrators such as trustees and executors, and resolving contested wills and estates litigation.

Our clients range from individuals, sole proprietorships, family-owned businesses to multi-national Fortune 500 corporations. They include some of the country’s most prominent technology companies and retailers. The breadth of this experience, coupled with a cooperative culture among our attorneys, enables us to offer our clients the sophistication and expertise of a large firm with the responsiveness and efficiency of a small firm.

Whether we are retained for a single matter or to handle a client’s ongoing needs, our focus is on developing a close working relationship with each client, while providing the highest quality services in the most cost-effective manner. To do so, each Donahue Fitzgerald attorney brings a business and practical perspective to every matter, ensuring that you have both a legal counselor and a real-world problem solver by your side.

Donahue Fitzgerald’s diverse, sophisticated, and effective practice will only continue to grow in strength and breadth. One thing will remain the same: our tireless dedication to furthering our clients’ dreams and resolving issues that confront them today, tomorrow, and in the future.
