Donovan & O’Connor, LLP is pleased to announce that Michael R. Hinkley of Dalton, Massachusetts has been named a partner in the firm. Attorney Hinkley has a strong connection to western Massachusetts, having grown up in Berkshire County, and a commitment to serve the people who live there.
Prior to attending law school, Attorney Hinkley worked in the asbestos litigation department of a prominent New York City law firm. It was his work there that led him to decide to attend law school and pursue a career as an attorney. Attorney Hinkley and his family returned to the Berkshires in 2002 so he could attend Albany Law School, graduating in 2005. Shortly after his graduation from law school, Attorney Hinkley joined Donovan & O’Connor.
When asked what he likes best about working for Donovan & O’Connor, Attorney Hinkley said “Our firm has a proven track record of diligent representation of our clients, of working meaningfully for justice and of doing good works for individuals and groups, large and small, throughout Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont. It really is quite a thrill to continue to be a part of that.” Attorney Hinkley works primarily in our Pittsfield, Massachusetts office and his practice is focused on all types of civil litigation, with an emphasis on medical malpractice, wrongful death, serious injury and employment cases.
