A life long resident of Pennsylvania, and a founding partner of Donaghue & Labrum, LLP, Hugh has dedicated his legal career to aggressively representing his clients and their loved ones with passion and expertise.

Since 1982, Hugh Donaghue has been representing victims of motor vehicle accidents, defective products, emergency room mistakes, hospital infections, surgical mistakes, doctor misdiagnoses and other hospital and medical related mistakes. Over his expansive career, Hugh has litigated cases to verdict and has skillfully negotiated settlements when they were in the best interest of his clients. He has tried cases throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States Federal Courts, although he primarily focuses his practice in the Courts of Common Pleas of Philadelphia, Delaware County, Chester County, Montgomery County, Bucks and Berks counties.

Hugh lives in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania with his wife. He enjoys spending his down time with her and their four children, and two grandchildren. A lover of the outdoors, Hugh enjoys fishing, hiking, taking long walks with the family dog, and politics.
