CATHY’S MY NAME, LITIGATION IS NOT A GAME Why Your Cases Matter to Me
I started in the legal field 36 years ago as a receptionist in Houston. Through the twists and turns, I have seen it all, but what stands out to me the most is the amount of care a good law firm pours into their work. I came to Alex and Saavedra in 2004. Immediately, I noticed how much heart they put into their cases. Finding a job working for respectable people can be difficult to come by. I feel fortunate to work for Andrew and Freddy. Their display of morals and quality character is nothing short of inspiring. They go above and beyond for their clients every step of the way, every day. That same passion and dedication inspires me to be the best litigation assistant I can be. When I was working in Houston, an attorney took me under her wing and taught me everything she knew. Through all of her lessons, my biggest takeaway was learning what to look for. If you know where to dig, you become an invaluable asset to a case. It is not always easy — you only gain that skill from knowledge and experience — but it is gratifying. I love helping clients fight their battles and making sure they know we are always here for them.

We never let our clients get taken advantage of, so that means I need to get the insurance company on the phone, open up the lines of effective communication, and gather as much favorable evidence as I can. It is my job to dive into these situations and find solutions. For anything I am unable to do, I know I can always rely on our skilled attorneys to know the right course of action. Working with wonderful attorneys is just one part of the job that I love. The ultimate reward is knowing I am there to support someone each step of the way through a stressful situation. When clients call, they know I will have an exact update on their case and can reassure them that the process is moving in the right direction.
I love where I work, and most importantly, I love the people I get to work with. There are so many talented people in our office, all with a heart to serve others. No one is here just to pick up a paycheck and go home. We pour passion into our jobs and we genuinely care. I have been here for the last 14 years for a reason. We fight at a high level. We care at a high level. We win at a high level.
