Biography:

Donna Ernest DeMarchi has been practicing primarily personal injury and wrongful death since becoming a member of the Florida Bar in 1999. Donna grew up in Martin County and graduated from Martin County High School in 1987. She went on to the University of Florida and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. After graduation she quickly realized she had a passion for the law and started her career as a paralegal for a solo practitioner in Palm City. Several years later she made the decision to further her career and obtained her law degree from the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law.

Her philosophy has always been that her clients should focus their energies on getting well, while she navigates the legal minefield of the insurance carriers. She strives to obtain the maximum benefit in each and every case.
