Ann Easley, who has been with our firm for eight years, currently works as a legal secretary to Greg Allen in our Personal Injury/Products Liability section. The work in products liability cases is hard, demanding and intense. These cases will always involve either a death or permanent injuries that devastate our clients. One of Ann’s best traits is her ability to communicate with our clients during these devastating times. She assists Greg in trials by filing pleadings with the court, organizing files, setting up depositions, and planning itineraries. Ann spends a lot of her time in Auburn where her daughter and son-in-law live. Ann says that she enjoys spending time with her two grandchildren, Luke and Lilly. Ann is a very good employee, a good person, and a credit to the firm. We are fortunate to have her with us.
Donna Puckett has been with the firm since February 2001 and works as David Byrne’s legal assistant in our Toxic Torts Section. During that time, Donna has worked on some very important cases, including the Monsanto case, which settled in late 2003 for $700 million and the Carbon Black case that went to the U.S. Supreme Court. She now works primarily on other environmental cases involving PFCs and leaking underground storage tanks (USTs). Donna and her husband John have been married since 1991 and they have three children, a son, Dylan, who is 17, and twin daughters, Leslie and Preslie, who are 16. Donna is a very good and dedicated employee who enjoys her work and we are extremely pleased to have her with us.
