Donna Jean A. Evans


During my years as a mediator at the Erie County Family Court, I worked closely with many attorneys and found myself giving them advice. I knew I could be just as effective as they were if not more — that’s when I knew I had to become a lawyer. Since then, I’ve been involved in many complex litigations for both class action and individual suits, giving my all to each case. It’s why I love my job; it allows me to fight for the victim.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Inspiration in my life: My son David and granddaughter Falynn

When I’m not helping clients: I am at the theatre taking in a show or getting my hands dirty through working on local productions.

My advice for young professionals: Work ahead of life by studying and researching every angle before trying to answer any question.

I’ll bet you didn’t know: Believe it or not, I used to drive a race car in the Enduro series at Sandusky Speedway.
