Biography Edit

Adam Donner was the assistant district attorney for Starling City. He worked for District Attorney Kate Spencer. Up-and-coming assistant D.A., Laurel Lance, worked under him. Adam Donner played a key role in the trial of Moira Queen, who was accused of playing a vital role in Malcolm Merlyn's massive undertaking to destroy The Glades. Donner sought the death penalty against Moira, but Laurel Lance played both sides in the hopes of getting Moira a more lenient sentence.

Adam Donner was kidnapped a notorious drug dealer known as the Count. While under the influence of the narcotic known as Vertigo, Adam Donner collapsed in court while cross examining Thea Queen at Moira's trial.

Adam later fired Laurel Lance, but rehired her in order to lure out the vigilante known as Helena Bertinelli, who had targeted her father, Frank Bertinelli for execution. Donner did not have the authority to reinstate Laurel, so Kate Spencer fired him from the D.A.'s office.
