Donna is an associate in the firm’s Tampa Bay Office where she has the privilege of representing victims who have been tragically affected by mesothelioma.

Donna received her law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law.

Donna received her Bachelor of Arts with Honors and Master of Science degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi where she majored in Political Science and minored in English and History. Donna received the Outstanding Pre-Law Student Book Award.

Outside of the office, Donna spends her free time walking, swimming, reading, and spending time with her family, friends, and cat, Simon. She is passionate about legal education and has served as a pro bono attorney coach and judge for high school and college mock trial teams.

Donna is a member of the Florida Bar, the Georgia Bar, the Cobb County Bar Association, all Florida State Courts, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and all Georgia State Courts.
