My favorite part of my work is the personal connections I make with hardworking people. As the intake coordinator, I establish relationships with everyone who calls to bring a claim. As a paralegal, I get to know people from all different walks of life throughout the life of a case. These personal connections, getting to know so many wonderful workers throughout the country as individuals, are what fuels me to work harder for them and with them.
