  • Antone Alfred Weber

    I have known Ms. Donaldson since the beginnings my practice nearly 10 years ago. She has consistently shown herself as extremely knowledgeable about the Law, well prepared for the Court in which she is appearing, and a zealous advocate for her clients. I freely admit to have learned a great deal about the practice of Law in general and the specifics of Traffic Law in particular from her. I heartily endorse Ms. Donaldson.
