Could Not Have Asked for a Better Attorney
Unfortunately, while we were traveling from Pennsylvania to Virginia for vacation, my family and I were involved in a serious crash with a dump trunk. We suddenly found ourselves in need of legal assistance, and we were lost as to what to do since we were located in Pennsylvania and the case needed to be litigated in Virginia. So, we went in search of attorneys who would be able to help. While searching through a long list of candidates and their qualifications we came across a listing for Donna Miller Rostant. Not only was Donna an attorney but she also holds a Master’s Degree in Nursing with a specialty in women’s health. This was exactly what I was looking for due to the nature of my injuries. I needed an advocate that would understand what I was going through and also be able to provide the support necessary for this case. Not only did I find that advocate in Donna, but I could not have asked for a better team to handle my case than Donna and Ann. Donna and Ann went the extra mile to make sure that I clearly understood what was going on, I never felt like there were miles between us and they made communicating an ease. When traveling was necessary, they were more than accommodating to my schedule. Donna and Ann answered all of my questions expertly and explained things so I could understand them, even if I asked them more than once, they always offered me sound advice, and I never felt like I was an imposition. They made me feel at ease, and they made sure that I was properly prepared for my deposition and ultimately my trial. Not only did my trial end successfully, but my other family members also had favorable settlements thanks to Donna and Ann. Most importantly though, throughout this entire process, I always felt that Donna and Ann cared about my family and me and we still keep in touch.

None Better.
I have nothing but the highest accolades I can think of to pass along regarding my experience with Donna Rostant. She was energetic, professional, sharp and tough on the folks from the other side of our case. She took the time to explain every step of the process and went to pains to assure she had my input on any critical decisions along the way. It felt like teamwork throughout. I was very satisfied with the final result and remain convinced I could not have found a better attorney.

First Rate!!
If you should find yourself needing expert, compassionate legal support for medical malpractice, call Ms. Rostant. After experiencing medical complications and permanent damage due to a provider’s errors, I contacted Ms. Rostant for help in evaluating my situation. Donna is approachable, welcomes your concerns and questions, and has a long history of successful results. Donna treated me with professional courtesy as well as a balance of legal explanations and lay person translations ensuring that I clearly understood the situation, my options, her recommendations, and the possible results for a variety of scenarios as we moved forward. I provided needed medical records, participated in interviews, created timelines, and assisted in documenting the impact the medical malpractice in my personal and professional life. I was supported, informed, and guided through the complex legal process. As a lay person, the medical and legal thresholds and nuances were initially beyond my understanding. At a time when I was enduring multiple surgeries, experiencing pain and taking time from my profession for recoveries, Donna patiently walked me through the maze with a focus on our mutually decided best outcome. When I was exhausted and struggling, Donna’s professional support accommodated my needs and supported me during this very difficult time. I highly recommend Donna Rostant.
