Christopher Donlin

Born and raised in Johnson City, New York, I received my undergraduate degree from The College of Saint Rose and completed my law degree at Quinnipiac University School of Law, graduating with a concentration in Civil Advocacy and Dispute Resolution.

As a law student, I was a member of the Mock Trial Honor Society and was President of the Society for Dispute Resolution. I was also awarded the Judge Owen Egan Award for Excellence in Dispute Resolution, the Outstanding Performance in Oral Advocacy Award, and the Nancy K. Sulinski Award for my work as a youth official.

Following graduation and after two years practicing personal injury defense law for a major insurance carrier in Connecticut, I made the decision to step out and start my own law firm, Donlin Law.

Having come from a family of non-lawyers but after seeing the need and building a vision, I knew the type of lawyer I wanted to be, the kind of law firm I wanted to build, and who exactly I wanted to represent.

My vision was that I would start a firm that focused on a high level of communication and commitment to working with clients, helping to make them feel comfortable in the often uncomfortable world of law.

Donlin Law was founded in 2010, and with six years’ experience in law and a strong track record in court-appointed probate, I have now represented hundreds of clients in personal injury, wills and conservatorships, and estate planning cases. My focus at Donlin Law is always on you, the client.

I am proud to support many local charities and foundations, and have donated to Wounded Warriors, Connecticut Hospice, Special Olympics, Arthritis Foundation, Masters Manna, Hamden Fathers basketball and baseball, and the J4J Basketball Tournament. I also work actively with the Society for Dispute Resolution at Quinnipiac University School of Law as a competition coach and judge. As an active member of the community, these activities are highly important to me as they allow me to spend time working with young people and help provide positive opportunities for them. 

I look forward to meeting with you and hearing your story. If you have an inquiry regarding a personal injury claim, wills and conservatorship, or estate planning, please contact me today at the Donlin Law offices.
