Rendering praise where praise is due

Oct 23, 2006 Rendering praise where praise is due

Sometimes I blog about some of the cases I handle. Critical to that work is our support staff. This month, we welcome my new primary secretary, Aleida, who comes to us with previous legal secretarial experience, criminal defense experience, and a big heart. We also welcome secretarial assistant Juana, who comes to us with prior receptionist experience, a caring demeanor, and full fluency in Spanish. They both round out two secretaries who primarily assist my law partner Jay Marks.

I consider myself very fortunate to have such a strong team to assist my clients. I believe strongly in integrating my support staff into all stages of preparation and execution of my clients’ defense, including producing and organizing case documents, brainstorming (non-lawyer assistants can be very beneficial for developing case ideas, as they often can see issues from a juror’s point of view better than a lawyer can), working directly with our clients, and going to court from time to time.
