Donna Chesteen

The Tech Law Firm, PLLC
Technology Attorney
Orlando, FL
Donna entered the legal profession with over 20 years of professional software engineering experience and holds both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Computer Science, an MBA, and, of course, a Juris Doctor. In her software career, she developed software for a wide variety of applications such as: search and rescue software for the Naval Oceanographic Office, geographic information systems (GIS), an ambulatory cardiac monitoring system, device driver support, and data backup. As an attorney, her practice focuses on contractual agreements for technology companies, IP protection, and licensing agreements such as terms of use and privacy policies. Donna’s favorite area of practice, however, is drafting complex software agreements such as custom software development agreements and SaaS agreements and serving as general counsel to companies that produce and distribute enterprise software because her background gives her unique insights and allows her to translate complicated software concepts into enforceable legal provisions that are specific to the industry. In a nutshell, she is the lawyer that speaks both legalese and geek.
