Keith Donoghue

Assistant Federal Defender

Assistant Federal Defender Keith M. Donoghue has been representing clients in federal criminal matters since 2008. He has presented oral argument in more than two dozen cases, most commonly before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

Before joining the Federal Community Defender Office, he was an associate at private firms handling commercial and civil rights matters, a fellow with the ACLU’s national project challenging unconstitutional drug enforcement practices, and a law clerk to the Honorable Rosemary Barkett of the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Donoghue graduated from the New York University School of Law in 2002.
