GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND
APPRECIATING ONE OF OUR PARALEGALS
P racticing law in any form is taxing work. While the results are rewarding, the hours can be long and tedious. That being said, I am relieved to have a reliable team of paralegals and staff working with Teri and me. March 1 is National Employee Appreciation Day all over the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. While it is not a public holiday, there are a lot of different ways employers show their appreciation for their employees. Some might buy lunch for their staff that day or publicly recognize talent and dedication where it deserves to be recognized. For Employee Appreciation Day, I want to recognize one of our paralegals. She consistently goes above and beyond her responsibilities. Deirdre Murchison has been at Obiorah Fields for about a year as a paralegal. She graduated college and previously worked for us as an intern while she was working on her paralegal degree. After she graduated, she began working for us full time. The main thing that comes to mind when I think about why I appreciate Deirdre is her mindfulness of our clients. We strive every day to be a law firm that has a reputation for being personable with everyone
we work for, and Deirdre excels at this. She will not only remember the specifics of clients’ cases but the meaningful personal details as well. If a client is having a baby in a couple of weeks, she will share in their excitement, and if a client had a parent or relative who passed away recently, she can sympathize with them and communicate in a kind and respectful manner.
with her mother’s baking business, and she got her mom to make the cakes for our Christmas party last year. At Obiorah Fields, there are three full-time employees and a couple of interns who work alongside Teri and me. While we thought it worthwhile to highlight Deirdre this issue, we want the rest of our staff to know that we appreciate the work every one of them does here. If you have people working with you or for you, we would encourage you this month to find ways of your own to appreciate those people. Any workplace can be stressful, and having people who find ways to help their coworkers and clients deserve a thank you.
WE STRIVE EVERY DAY TO BE A LAW FIRM THAT HAS A REPUTATION FOR BEING PERSONABLE WITH EVERYONE WE WORK FOR, AND DEIRDRE EXCELS AT THIS.
Deirdre is hardworking and dedicated in the workplace as well as thoughtful toward matters outside the firm. During Girl Scout Cookie month, Deirdre worked with her daughter and the daughter of one of our staff members to help them sell cookies around the office. She also helps out
