In the last few months we have seen some changes in our team. Just recently we welcomed three new members, Kathy, Lucy and Julia.
Lucy joined us this spring. Her family is originally from Puerto Rico and they moved to New Jersey, where she grew up. She takes care of the reception and many of the firm's administrative responsibilities along with initial client contact by phone. Lucy is bilingual in Spanish and English and has a positive spirit and can-do attitude. Lucy hopes that we can all lead other people by our positive actions into a hopeful future.
Julia has been with us for over a month now. She moved to the United States from Bolivia 10 years ago with her family and she is now our office and billing manager. She is bilingual in English and Spanish and, as many of us in the team, an immigrant too, which gives her a special sensitivity towards our clients. She has a bachelor's degree in accounting and six years of management experience. In these times of uncertainty as we are witnessing unfairness, Julia hopes we can provide guidance and support for those who need it most.
Kathy is a seasoned immigration paralegal that started with us a couple of months ago and is taking care of family clients and giving support to our family attorneys. With over 20 years of experience in the field, she knows how to deal with all kinds of immigration situations. Kathy has worked both in large and small firms and is professional and sensitive to our immigration clients. Kathy hopes that more people will lead by example instead of just voicing empty intentions.
