Berlin Law Firm January 2019

Meet Alli Our New Legal Assistant!

As we kick off the new year, we’re excited to feature the newest member of our team, Alli Ginn! Since last November, Alli has taken care of all the odds and ends that keep our cases running smoothly. From reaching out to clients over the phone to conducting invaluable research on cases, her upbeat attitude and years of administrative experience shine through. Originally from Bentonville, Arkansas, Alli got her start in administrative assistance working in the oil and gas industry. “I learned that I don’t really like being in charge, but I love helping people,” she reflects, “I’ve always preferred to be the right hand to the boss.” Beyond just a great attitude for customer service, Alli has a passion for learning and personal growth — by her first week at our firm, she was already halfway through Lee’s first book!

The Best Podcasts to Start in 2019

Though podcasts have been around for over a decade, they have only recently found their stride in popular culture. And they don’t all feature nerds talking about “Game of Thrones.” In this form of audio entertainment, there really is something for everyone. A number of podcasts have broken into mainstream pop culture, like “My Favorite Murder,” “This American Life,” and NPR’s “Planet Money.” But these are only the tip of the iceberg. Here are a few lesser-known podcasts that are seriously worth your time. START SOMETHING FUN: ‘SPIRITS’ The title “Spirits” is a play on the stories told and drinks enjoyed on this podcast. Co-hosts Amanda McLoughlin and Julia Schifini offer a fresh take on myths, legends, and folklore. From Greek classics to the tale of the Javanese Mermaid Queen, these lifelong friends and mythology enthusiasts examine what the stories we tell say about our culture, traditions, and values. If you’re eager to fill your year with something kinda creepy and kinda cool, you can’t go wrong with “Spirits.” Start listening at SpiritsPodcast.com. GO ON AN ADVENTURE: ‘THE FAR MERIDIAN’ Audio dramas are back and thriving in the world of podcasts. “The Far Meridian” explores the story of Peri, a lighthouse keeper whose brother disappeared long ago. Peri is terrified of leaving her home, so she’s never discovered what happened to him. That changes when her lighthouse begins to appear in a new location every morning, initiating her search for her brother. Fantastically fun and painfully real, this is a story about the courage it takes to leave home behind. Join the girl in the lighthouse at TheFarMeridian.com. TACKLE YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS: ‘THE MARIE FORLEO PODCAST’ We all need some advice. Why not get it from someone who knows what they’re talking about? Marie Forleo is an entrepreneur, writer, and philanthropist. And according to Oprah, she’s a thought leader for the next generation. Her mission is to help you become the person you most want to be. On the podcast, Marie and her guests discuss business, relationships, fear, love, and so much more. Get inspired at MarieForleo.com/marietv. This list is just a start to the wealth of amazing, diverse podcasts out there. News recaps, sports history, true crime, pop-culture throwbacks, and plenty more fantastic audio entertainment awaits on your phone’s podcast app. Start listening to your new obsession today!

This is the first time Alli will be using her administrative experience in a legal setting, and she has risen to the challenge with gusto. “I like delving into the complexity,” she remarks. “I’ve been learning so much, from marketing to criminal law — it’s exciting!” Between her many years of experience and her willingness to learn and adapt, we knew we’d found the perfect fit for our firm. Outside the office, Alli enjoys spending time with her husband and three daughters, taking in all that the greater Tulsa area has to offer. “I love it here because you get the big city experience, but you can drive 30 minutes and be at a lake. You still get the peace of nature.” Indeed, her family avoids keeping their boat in the water so they can explore different lakes year-round. At home, Alli enjoys cooking, especially when it comes to trying new dishes. “I try to cook something we’ve never had before at least once a week,” she explains. “The kids find it annoying,” she adds with a laugh, “but I think it’s important for them to learn to try new things while they’re young.” Indeed, this philosophy characterizes Alli’s professional approach as well. “I always try to have an open mind. I want to learn and grow with this firm so I can be the person they need me to be.”
