    Donna was very thorough and knowledgeable about every aspect of my case. Her persistence with me made me be more productive in my case and less emotional. She was aggressive in the courtroom and got me a more than favorable result which gave me a second chance in life. Her negotiation skills are impeccable and fine tuned. I would use Donna again if the occasion arose and would certainly refer her to others.
