A professional with expertise plus compassion, a true leader in her field..
Jayme handled my mother's affairs during a very difficult time for me as my son had recently passed away. She took care to explain and guide me through a most tedious process. With her patience and resolve, everything fell perfectly into place. I highly recommend Jayme. I also want to add that her office is highly responsive and I felt that my needs were always attended to when I needed something.

A pleasure to work with
I hired Jayme to handle my mothers estate. She was very helpful in explaining the process, as I had not been through it before. When an out-of-state matter came up, she recommended an attorney that could help. Jayme is kind, respectful and responsive. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an estate/probate lawyer.

Kind, high character lawyer
Jayme has been a wonderful advocate for my elderly mom, who is dealing with a tough diagnosis for my father. We are using her services for both will/estate planning and also long term care/health benefits and could not be more satisfied. I interviewed several elder attorneys before choosing Jayme. I found her rates to be on market but what has really differentiated from all others has been her kindness, empathy and willingness to patiently listen and council my mom (and the rest of my family) through what has been a very frightening and confusing time. She has really put us at ease. I have recommended Jayme to several friends as a result.

Satisfied Client
Ms. Donnelson helped my sibling and I with many issues facing us as we placed our parent in assisted living. She found flaws in my mom's outdated power of attorney, medical release, living will, and will. She rewrote all of these. Then after reviewing our situation she recommended and set up a trust fund to protect the existing assets. We will continue to use her as we apply for Veteran's and other benefits. Even our investment advisor praised her expertise and advice. She was easy to work with, listened well, and is personable.
