After deciding to make a career change and go to school for paralegal studies, I fortunately graduated with high honors. I attribute excelling in pre-litigation to the fact that I enjoyed it. I worked in pre-litigation for 3 years at a different Jacksonville firm. During that time, I also worked in litigation, family and criminal defense but I have a passion for pre-litigation. I get a great sense of gratification from clients regularly thanking me for listening and helping them through tough situations. My cases become very personal to me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’ve lived at the beaches for about 20 years and love the area so the idea of fitting my career in at the beach was like a dream. When I saw that the firm was looking for a case manager in the beach office, I felt like I had to jump on the opportunity. I met with John and he explained what he was looking for professionally and he also said he wanted someone who would fit in at the beach. He explained that if he decided to bring me on, he would have me working with others on cases against Dr. Howard Schneider. Hundreds of families have been affected by the abuse and negligence of this man so having any part bringing some of them justice is a definite perk. In the time I’ve been here, I’ve been able to witness the dedication of J.M.P. as well as other attorneys and staff members here. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this team and hope to remain here for years to come.
