A friend had refereed me to the law office where I was put in contact with Donna Smith. After discussing with her, via phone, why I had approached the firm she suggested that we get together to discuss my options. Upon meeting with her she clearly laid out all of my options on the table, thus allowing me the option to make a confident decision of the best course of action for my case. She was always there with a quick response if I had questions or concerns and gave me the feeling that she truly cared about my case and was there until a settlement, that I found except able, was met.

Donna was very professional, efficient, and effective! After hiring a different attorney, and waiting a year for her to actually do something, I decided to contact Donna Smith as I knew without a shadow of a doubt I had a valid case/complaint.
Donna jumped on it and got things remedied for me. And did so in about 3 months. That is the difference between hiring a lawyer with years of experience and backed by a solid firm then choosing the wrong one who was clearly fresh out of law school and did not have my best interest in mind.
She communicated continuously with me, answered my questions, and most importantly she got thinks done.
As I can not discuss the specifics of my lawsuit, know this. You are in good hands with her.

Donna treated me very well and became my advocate for a very difficult experience I had at my job. She was able to recoup my wages without going to court. I am very happy with the result and I am glad there are people out there who will stand up for the little guy.
Eric Christiansen, Workers compensation Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse Donna Smith, she is a great employment lawyer and a strong advocate. Donna's focus is on what is best for her client and she directs her practice accordingly. Donna provided very valuable insights to me on complex cases that involved both workers' compensation and employment law issues.
Richard Bradford, Employment and labor Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Donna is an excellent attorney. I recently sat on the opposite side of Donna on a case and possesses a wealth of knowledge in labor and employment law. She is also very thorough and knows how to identify the critical issues. Anyone choosing to work with Donna cannot go wrong.
