About Me

Donna C. Hung focuses her practice in the areas of Family Law and Criminal Defense. Her career includes working as a former Assistant State Attorney in the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Orange and Osceola counties. As a former prosecutor in Orlando and Kissimmee, Donna conducted numerous criminal jury trials, a majority of which resulted in guilty verdicts. Additionally, Donna prosecuted and handled over a thousand criminal cases. Based on her stellar performance, she was chosen to be a special prosecutor handling all aspects of domestic violence, beginning at the intake level, continuing to the trial level and finishing at the violation of probation level and beyond. Donna was even designated by the 9th Judicial Circuit’s State Attorney to sign charging informations, a designation given only to a select few. The cases Donna dealt with as a special prosecutor were domestic in nature and included domestic violence batteries, assault, stalking, harassing phone calls, violations of domestic violence injunctions, and violations of pre-trial release conditions.


Donna truly enjoyed litigating in court and because of her impressive courtroom presence and trial skills, she was offered an associate position at a Winter Park law firm where she quickly realized family law and criminal defense were her passion.  She handled and defended numerous cases which included traffic infractions, DUI’s, misdemeanors, felonies, felonies punishable by life, sex crimes, armed robbery, burglary, as well as other offenses.


In addition to her experience as a former Orlando Criminal Prosecutor and a current Orlando Criminal Defense Attorney, Donna also practices Family Law. Donna currently handles uncontested divorces, complex contested divorces, child custody/visitation and child support issues, Department of Revenue child support enforcement defense, modifications, relocations, paternity, alimony, domestication of foreign decrees, emergency motions, domestic violence injunctions and father’s rights.


During her career, Donna has remained involved in her community and is an active part of Florida’s legal system.  She is on the board of directors for Abuse Intervention Monitoring, Inc. which is a non-profit overseeing batterer's intervention programs.  She is also a member of the Central Florida Family Law Inn of Court, Greater Orlando Asian American Bar Association, Orange and Seminole County Bar Association, Family Law Section of the Florida Bar Association, Asian American Chamber of Commerce, National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, Central Florida Association for Women Lawyers, and Florida Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys.
