She regularly advises clients regarding the unique rules associated with disposition of tax-deferred retirement accounts as part of the individual's overall estate plan. In addition to analytic and technical legal skills, Donna brings to her clients the ability and desire to help them understand and address their individual estate planning needs.

Donna also assists organizations with the creation of tax-exempt entities, obtains tax-exemption status, and addresses the various concerns and challenges of tax- exempt entities.

· Regularly working with individuals in selecting banks and trust companies to serve as fiduciaries of their estates and trusts.

· Regularly working with national and regional banks in coordinating ongoing estate planning matters on behalf of mutual clients of the firm and the bank.

· Representing national and regional bank trust departments in estate and trust administration.

Before starting her legal career, Donna practiced as a registered nurse and taught nursing at a liberal arts college. Her teaching and nursing experiences have provided valuable insights in dealing with clients concerning end-of-life issues.
