Litigation Attorney

Email:  tmcdonald@gilbertgrouplaw.com



Ms. McDonald has an extensive litigation background in the areas of default servicing, commercial, construction, insurance coverage and personal injury litigation.  She began her legal career in New York where she focused primarily on insurance and reinsurance coverage litigation.  Warmer weather and relatives drew her to Florida in 1995 where she continued her practice, focusing on complex commercial litigation and business law.  After starting a family, she accepted a position as staff attorney in Clearwater, Florida for the Civil Circuit Court Judges.  As a staff attorney she continued to develop her litigation and research skills while working closely with her assigned Judges.  This allowed her to increase her comfort in the courtroom and her litigation proficiency. Although Ms. McDonald has a diverse background, she now focuses primarily on default servicing, especially contested foreclosure litigation.
