Donna Lagana Silva is a trial attorney with vast and diverse experience. She studied international relations at the University of San Diego and Merrimack College before earning her Juris Doctorate from Massachusetts School of Law.
Upon graduation from law school, Donna went to work for the renowned criminal defense attorney, Ralph F. Champa, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Together they successfully defended hundreds of criminal cases at the highest levels. “Ralph taught me that being book smart was a mere fraction of what it takes to be a good lawyer. It is how you treat people, from clients to court officers to judges that will make or break you.” After Attorney Champa’s passing, Donna opened her own practice focused on family law, civil litigation and criminal defense applying these same principles.
Donna balances being a wife, mother and attorney, which allows her to genuinely relate to the everyday issues her clients face. Her client retention and referral rate are self-evident that her clients like and respect her straightforward approach.
