Part of enjoying what you do is enjoying the people you do it with. Sean Donahue and David Goldberg became friends while serving as clerks to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, then of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Both then served as law clerks to U.S. Supreme Court Justices before heading off on separate career paths, Sean to a large law firm, and then the Justice Department, and David to the White House, then the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. A decade later, they both found themselves in solo practice and missing the collaborative process, the review insights, and, to a certain extent, the camaraderie that comes with a group practice. They began to use each other as sounding boards, improving their work and their work life through the collaboration.

In 2006, David and Sean established Donahue & Goldberg, LLP, with offices in New York and Washington, DC, but using all of the technologies available today to continue to work as a team in representing clients all over the United States.  Ten years later, they were joined by Susannah Landes Weaver, who arrived from a large firm after clerking for Justice Breyer.  The representation they provide combines the collective efforts of keen legal scholars with a creative irreverence and conviviality that makes them very accessible and easy to work with, as they labor under the belief that practicing law should be fun. They often work with teams of attorneys, and pride themselves on working well with varied groups of collaborators.
