“I became part of this firm eight years ago as a file clerk and have worked my way up to become a knowledgeable paralegal and calendar clerk who is now hands on and available to assist clients with all their legal needs. I specialize in dealing with our Spanish population and enjoy meeting new people. I take pride in helping others get justice. My aim is helping those in need and making them feel more of a family member than a client.”
“I have been working in the legal field for 12 years as a paralegal in various fields. I am originally from Texas and moved to New York a year ago. I am fluent in Spanish, which enables me to assist our Spanish-speaking clients with all their legal questions and concerns. I draft pleadings and other legal documents as well as assist our attorneys throughout the life of a case. We also like to have a close relationship with all of our clients and it is important to us that they know that they can always count on all of us. Helping others in need is very important to me and working with this firm has allowed me to do this on a daily basis.”

“I have over 40 years of experience as a legal secretary/paralegal. My primary focus has been in the area of personal injury litigation and trial preparation for both plaintiff and defendant firms. I also have some experience in patent law, construction litigation, immigration, real estate and wills, estates and trusts.
I have been the office manager at the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny since the firm’s foundation. At various times in the firm’s evolution, I have worked as a legal secretary, paralegal, receptionist, calendar clerk, bookkeeper and personal assistant. I can work independently to manage files, prepare legal pleadings in a case from inception to conclusion, train new personnel and liaise with the Courts, attorneys’ offices, medical providers and insurance carriers. I have a particular ability to relate to clients, establishing a warm personal rapport.”
