Schiller & Hamilton - March - April 2020


WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK March/April 2020

Meet Some of the Dedicated Women at Schiller & Hamilton!

For the past year, readers have allowed me to share stories from my early law career to today. It’s been an honor to share these with you! But as we celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8 and International Women’s Month throughout March, I knew this space would be better served by a few of the women who work at Schiller & Hamilton Law Firm. As you will find out, these four women live the philosophy this firm was founded on: We’ve got your back!

But that’s what makes us different than most firms. A lot of us have been together for many years, and we are so involved in each other’s lives. I serve as the office manager in the Rock Hill, South Carolina, location, but I am also connected to the three additional offices. I see how this connection translates into the work we do for clients. We recognize that you’re not just a number. At Schiller & Hamilton, it’s family in and family out. You’re part of our family, regardless of how we can help you.

I’ve been with the firm for the past five years, including what I call my “sabbatical” in the middle. Due to where I was living, I worked for other law firms from spring

2018 to summer 2019. But when the opportunity presented itself, I knew I wanted to come back.

The big work family I had left was still strong and growing when I returned from my absence. Sure, things had changed. We were using new programs, and there were new procedures I had to learn, even after 20 years in the business. I had support from my team as I learned it all, and we rely on each other to this day. I know clients feel that dedication and connection we have as a team at Schiller & Hamilton after that first meeting, and I know it helps them cope with their situations.

I’ve been in the legal field for 35 years,

and my specialty as a paralegal is in workers’ compensation cases. It’s certainly not an easy

part of the law, but after three decades in this business, I know how to ensure we are serving clients as best we can. You really get to know your clients in this line of work. We learn about their families and their kids. We even know their pets’ names! They’re not just another client or number in our files. They are people who have very real, honest fears about where their next paycheck is going to come from. It’s emotional, but that’s where we step in. I’m honored to work alongside coworkers who I consider to be friends to help families find relief. It makes the hard work all the more worth it.

As Bennett always says, we’ve got your back! And that all starts with our team.

I first met Bennett long before I came to work for him. In fact, I even knew Joel Hamilton back when he was still a young runner at the firm Bennett worked at. I’ve

watched the two of them and our team grow, and through it all, we became one big family. We care about each other. We probably know more about each other than we should!
