Domhnall Ó’Catháin (Donny) practices personal injury law, and has secured millions of dollars for his clients, including seven-figure settlements in medical malpractice cases and truck crash cases. In 2017, he won the largest dental malpractice verdict in New Jersey in a case where the defendant-dentist refused to make an offer to settle the case.
