I have big news! In order to help expand my practice (and take some of the unbearable workload off Patty's plate) I have hired a new legal assistant! I would like to introduce the newest member of my legal team: Samantha!
I have to start by thanking Patty for being such an important part of my practice over the last 4 years. She has been amazing and I owe her credit for a large part of my success. She has put in a herculean effort over the last year. Don't worry - She is not leaving! Patty will still be a critical part of Peterson Lawyers moving forward. However, we have grown enough recently that we needed to bring in some additional talent in order to continue our mission of providing each client with the attention and energy they deserve (Plus, we were going to work Patty to death if we didn't provide her some help).
As my legal assistant Samantha will be working to maintain our high standard of client satisfaction: my number one priority. She will be the primary point of contact for clients and potential clients and will manage the non-lawyer day-to-day case management tasks. This role is a critical part of my practice and I am proud to have her onboard. She has just finished her first week here (a stellar beginning) and she will likely need every second of her 3 days off to prepare for next week. I have no doubt that she will develop into a significant asset for the firm.
