Office Manager

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.
