Mindy has been with the firm for over thirty years, since she was a young girl out of business college. She has literally grown up with the firm. The thing she likes most about this firm is the fact that they truly care about their clients and fighting for the client’s rights. She still finds her job interesting after all these years because of the variety of clients and cases the attorneys handle.
Mindy has been a member of the Girl Scouts of America for 15 years, along with her twin daughters. During this time with the Girl Scouts, she has enjoyed participating in many community service projects.
Her time away from work is spent with her husband training and playing with her black Labrador puppy. She also participates in Yoga, kickboxing and other challenging classes at her gym. Although her job can be quite demanding, family time has always been a priority for her.
Business Development Manager
Lorraine has been with the firm since 1981. She enjoys working here because “we are a plaintiff firm and my job is rewarding because we help people during a difficult time in their life resulting from personal injury claims.” What she likes most about the firm is that everyone, including partners, associates and staff, work together as a team.
Over the years, the firm has participated in a variety of team building activities including skiing and river rafting. Also, the Partners support their employees both professionally and personally.
Currently, Lorraine is a Board Member of the Century City Chamber of Commerce and was named Outstanding Woman of Achievement (2002) by the Century City Chamber of Commerce. She is also a recipient of the President’s Award from the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (1998, 2000 and 2001).
