November Member of the Month!

Donna M. Truex, Real Estate and Environmental Practice Lawyer, Bowditch & Dewey

“Giving doesn’t have to be too big or hard, just start where you are, use what you have and give what you can, whether it be time, talent or treasure. All three are important and needed and no gift is too small. Together we can make a difference.”

Women’s Initiative is pleased to honor Donna Truex, lawyer at Bowditch & Dewey, as November’s member of the month! Donna’s passion for life and her commitment to helping others has made her the perfect candidate for this month’s selection.

Donna Truex has been a member of Bowditch & Dewey’s Real Estate & Environmental Practice area for over 15 years.
