Employee Spotlight: Doreen
Doreen is one of the newer members of our paralegal staff at Pezzano, Mickey & Bornstein. Here she shares her story with you.
I started my journey as a paralegal in Bergen County for the General Counsel of a major supermarket chain, where I worked for many years. There, I observed firsthand the slip and fall personal injury and workers’ compensation cases that occurred in hundreds of supermarkets all across the United States. It really opened my eyes to the importance of implementing safety precautions for employees and the general public, which is something we don’t think about when we enter public premises. I have seen everything from minor accidents to catastrophic cases over the years.
When my husband’s profession brought us to the Flemington area, it took me on a different path for a while. I worked for several law offices in other areas of the law that I didn’t feel were my fit. I decided I wanted to work for a personal injury and workers’ compensation firm instead of going back to corporate law. I started thinking I wanted to be on the other side of the cases, with the plaintiffs/petitioners. This is what eventually led me to accepting a paralegal position for Wendy Bornstein. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I am proud to work for Wendy at an “all women” firm. Wendy, Lisa, and the entire team put forth 150 percent every day for the clients.
My primary position is to support Wendy in all phases of the lawsuits, from court filings, discovery requests, arbitrations and mediations, all the way through trial preparation. However, I really feel that the most important aspect of my job is working as a liaison between Wendy and our clients. I am proud of the outcomes we achieve for our clients. Seeing that we have changed many clients’ lives for the better has been such a rewarding experience for me.
Doreen resides in Hunterdon County with her husband, Robert, where they have raised two children, Jennifer and Stephen, and have two shelties.
