When Donald W. Boyajian created Dreyer Boyajian LLP, he envisioned a personal injury law firm that served only the best interest of injured people. Since then, he has focused his efforts on helping New Yorkers in Albany hold negligent parties accountable for their injuries. The trust they place in his relentless advocacy and compassionate counsel has helped him achieve his current success.

Mr. Boyajian majored in political science for his undergraduate degree and graduated cum laude from Union College in 1978. Three years later, he completed his law degree at the University of New Hampshire Franklin School of Law in Concord. That same year, he became licensed to practice in New York. He is also admitted to practice in the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York.

His decades of experience have made Mr. Boyajian a well-sought-after lecturer and speaker. He has served as speaker and moderator for several events since 1995. This includes serving as moderator of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association since 2015 to the present day. His successes have also earned him several notable awards and recognitions, such as membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocate's Forum.

When Mr. Boyajian began his career of serving injured persons, he found his calling. He also continues to advocate for access to legal representation for aggrieved parties of all backgrounds. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends.
