Automobile Paralegal

How long have you been working in your field and for Weinstein & Cohen?
I began working in the legal field while I was in high school as my summer job since 2006. I have been working for Judson Cohen since 2008 when I started as an assistant to his paralegal. I transitioned into the full-time receptionist while attending college part-time shortly thereafter. I went on to achieve my Pre-law Associates in Arts Degree and my Paralegal Studies Associates in Science Degree. I am now a Florida Registered Paralegal and relish every day I get to work in this field.

What issues do you consistently solve for clients?
“Hola, como puedo ayudarte?” I am the go-to for our Spanish-speaking clients. Even if it’s not a case that I work on personally, I will help with any issue when translation is needed.

Where do you currently live?
I live in Coral Gables, FL with my husband Gilbert and our daughter Aria Sofia. She was born April 2016. She is as sweet as candy and full of love. Aria Sofia has made us the happiest parents ever!

What do you find most rewarding about your job?
I love being able to help our clients. Seeing someone come to us in pain, upset or feeling hopeless, is difficult, but seeing that person bloom with relief after a recovery makes it all worthwhile. Explaining the process to our client’s and walking them through the system is very rewarding to me.

What is something surprising that people do not know about you?
I enjoy baking and event decorating. I make my own cakes and dessert stations for family parties.
