The victor of a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot had her lawyers claim the winnings Wednesday amid a legal battle to keep her identity secret.

Attorneys for the woman, dubbed Jane Doe in court filings, and officials from the state Lottery Commission will hold an 11:30 a.m. press conference in Concord, where Doe's legal team will accept the prize and "make an announcement regarding the winner's charitable plans", the statement said.

The woman, identified as Jane Doe, signed the ticket following the January 6 drawing, but later learned she could remain anonymous through a trust.

"She realizes how lucky she is", lawyer William Shaheen told USA Today.

"My client doesn't want any accolades, she doesn't want any credit", he said.

She announced through her lawyers a donation of $150,000 to Girls Inc., a nonprofit organization that advocates for girls, according to The Union Leader. The commission approved the payment to a trust the woman set up.

"She wishes to continue this work and the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars", the complaint said.

Under New Hampshire law, a lottery winner's name, town and prize amount become public information.

Executive director of the state lottery Charlie McIntyre said the interaction between the anonymous victor and the lottery office hasn't been adversarial.

"While we respect this player's desire to remain anonymous, state statutes and lottery rules clearly dictate protocols", the statement said.
