Care, Compassion…and “Completing the Circuit.”

While I do not consider myself an electrician, I know that in order to turn on a light, I must first flip the switch. If I do this successfully, I am rewarded with light all around me. I do remember from an early lesson in school that this process is “completing the circuit.” If there was a gap in any part of that circuit, the light would not turn on.

I have been a team member at LaMonaca Law for over three (3) years. While my formal title is that of “Paralegal,” as it pertains to how we work within the team, my job takes on many other additional tasks, each having their own benefits and rewards.

As the phone rings throughout the day, on the other end is often an individual who has many fears, anxieties and concerns over the issues which brought them to our family law firm. I have the very unique opportunity and privilege of being the individual who can listen to them, allow them to express their concerns, and to give them a very warm, caring and empathetic response to put them at ease. I reassure them, which letting them know that their message will immediately be relayed to the attorney who is handling their case. It is by and through these little, simple conversations that helps our clients sleep better at night and feel assured and confident that their message will be relayed and acted upon.

In Paralegal school, they taught us about the law. Through my time here at LaMonaca Law I have learned and grown on so many levels. Of paramount importance was the ability to empathize and show genuine care and compassion for each of our clients according to their unique struggles. You see, in life, there is not a “one size fits all” approach, but instead, each client needs to be handled in a different way, which increases the likelihood that their fears and concerns can be addressed and that their legal matter can be resolved. I truly enjoy speaking with each client and getting to know each and every one of them, as well as their families.

If you, your family or friends are in need of any family law services, I look forward to speaking with you personally about how our team of experienced attorneys can assist. Please call 610-892-3877 and ask for me personally.
