Bonan was born and raised in Hubei Province, China and arrived in the U.S. at the age of 11. She attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL as a National Merit Scholar on a full scholarship. While in law school, Bonan interned for ConocoPhillips Company’s legal department. The law school awarded her the Judge Mary Bacon Scholarship for Overcoming Adversity in 2010.
Since the inception of her legal career, Bonan has fought on the side of personal-injury plaintiffs against individual and corporate negligence, and she doesn’t see that changing. She began practicing law in 2011, working for a plaintiffs’ personal-injury firm that’s almost a household name in Texas. During her tenure there, she handled hundreds of cases from beginning to end. Bonan then continued the good fight at a small plaintiffs’ firm, where she focused on litigation and trial work.
Bonan is the first one in her family to become an attorney. She has represented hundreds of injured individuals and zealously pursues fair compensation on their behalf. Bonan is also a concert-level pianist and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and French.
