Dana Setnor Metzger has been a member of the Florida Bar since 1990. Born and raised in Miami, she attended college and law school in Florida.
Education and Honors
Dana graduated with honors from the University of Florida in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications and a minor in Psychology. She later graduated cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 1990. While at UM, Dana served as Associate Editor of the Inter-American Law Review and interned for the Honorable Amy Steele Donner with the Eleventh Circuit Court in Miami-Dade County.
After earning her law degree, Dana worked for the United States Small Business Administration Disaster Relief Program assisting underinsured and uninsured victims of Hurricane Andrew obtain loans. When the program ended, she worked in litigation and trial support for twelve years. During this time, she had the opportunity to assist an elderly client with her Last Will & Testament and realized that she wanted to pursue estate planning. Dana found that her calm and patient manner put people at ease even while dealing with these sensitive matters. She enjoys helping people achieve peace of mind and finds it more rewarding than working in the adversarial arena of litigation.
Dana has exclusively worked in the areas of probate administration, estate planning and contract preparation for the last ten years. Her practice is intentionally small to maintain a level of closeness with her clients and their families. She values her relationships. Dana stays in touch with her clients and is pleased to hear from them. Such communication facilitates the review of her clients’ needs as they may arise based on changes in their lives and the law.
