How Can I Help You Move Forward?

Highly motivated to achieve the best results for every client in every matter, I bring a strong background in litigation, insurance coverage and defense, and the kind of experience and proficiency in overseeing all aspects of a case from intake through the trial and appellate processes that my clients have a right to expect. I also pay a great deal of attention to understanding my clients’ business, their objectives in every matter, and to cultivating strong business relationships with clients. 


For more than 35 years, Donna Thomisee has focused primarily on the defense of personal injury/commercial claims in diverse industries such as auto/trucking, premises and construction. Donna is also highly skilled at unraveling all types of complicated insurance coverage claims. She regularly counsels businesses on the best approaches to avoiding litigation, including consulting on business process improvement. But when litigation becomes the only or the best solution, she brings an impressive record of success. Donna is active in various state and national organizations and is a frequent author and speaker on matters pertaining to litigation and insurance. 

Outside the Office

When not busy supporting her clients, Donna serves as Chairman of the Board for LINC Ministries Inc, a nonprofit that works to help empower local – and often overlooked – ministry leaders in multiple cities to share Christ’s love for all people and help their communities thrive. She loves to read, garden, dance, pretend to exercise hard and spend time with her family.
