Probate Paralegal/Asbestos Docket (Former Employee) – Beaumont, Texas – January 16, 2014
While at Brent Coon & Associates, LLC I was the head Personal Injury Probate Paralegal for our Texas, Illinois, Arkansas, and Georgia offices. Our specialization revolved around asbestos exposure. I obtained the documents needed to release funds for ourselves as well as the clients. I maintained a rotating number of roughly 2,000 case files at any given time. I worked with clients in order to obtain signatures needed for Affidavits as well as any probate documentation that may have been required. After the BP oil spill in the gulf of firm switched gears and picked up more than 10,000 claims in relation to it. I was over 4,000 of the case files myself with a supervising Attorney. I interviewed and collected the needed documentation to submit to BP's attorney's.I would work a lot of times seven days a week to assist the firm in the case loads for roughly four months until we finally leveled out. I learned how to work as a team with other paralegals in order to maintain our deadlines.
Fast paced environment, Exciting cases, good work load.
