Donna Eland

Director & Solicitor

Qualifying in 2004 with an LLB degree in Law with French, Donna has impressively worked her way up from Trainee to Director level at Rowlinsons. As an exceptional talent, she won the ‘Student of the Year’ award while gaining her STEP accreditation in 2006-7.

Donna is now the Head of the Private Client department at Rowlinsons and specialises in Wills, trusts, estate administration, inheritance tax advice and elderly client issues. She also deals with more complex matters that include advising business owners and high net worth clients.

When Donna’s time is not taken up raising her two young children, she often speaks publically with local businesses and groups such as the WI, on the importance of making wills and powers of attorney. She also enjoys speaking French, baking and crochet, as well as being involved in an ‘International Mums’ group in her home town.
