Minnesota Personal Injury Attorney, Sheila K. Donnelly-Coyne
As a college student, Sheila did volunteer work with mentally and physically handicapped teens and was chairperson of a student run volunteer organization called, Volunteers in Action. She knew, even before graduation, that she wanted to find a job where she could help people. She decided on law school. She feels blessed to have the opportunity to help and protect those who do not have someone to stand up for them.
Over the years, she has won many cases in which large settlements and verdicts made headlines.
She has been recognized as a Super Lawyer by Minnesota Lawyer magazine and as one of nine outstanding attorneys in the state. She is a lecturer for the Minnesota Association for Justice and the Minnesota State Bar Association. Sheila is on the Board of Governors and the Continuing Education Committee for the Minnesota Association of Justice.
Sheila and her husband live in the twin cities with their children. She likes to spend her time off gardening, downhill skiing, golfing, biking, jogging and most of all, playing with her children.
