The Anderson Law Firm Team

Jarumi | Legal Assistant

When Jarumi's not meeting deadlines or managing cases, she's talking with clients to make sure they're staying in the loop.

What do you love most about the Anderson Law Firm?

I love my job. Being able to help people that have been hurt in an accident is amazing. Plus, my coworkers are the best! I wouldn't trade them for the world. 

What's your favorite hobby outside of work?

One of my favorite hobbies is Zumba - it makes me feel young and fit. I also love to spend time with my friends and family. 

Cats or dogs? 

I love both, but if I had to choose I guess I would choose dogs. 

It's Karaoke night - what are you singing? 

That would be Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper. 

 

 

 

Brandi | Paralegal

Brandi does it all. When she's not scheduling depositions or drafting legal documents, she's helping the attorneys prepare for trial and - most importantly - meeting with clients to help alleviate the stress and confusion that comes from being in an accident. 

What do you love most about your job? 

Plain and simple, I love helping people. No one ever wants to get injured. The whole process of trying to heal while working with an insurance company can be incredibly daunting. I love knowing we can help our clients let go of that stress and focus solely on getting well.

What's your favorite hobby outside of work?

 love simply spending time with my husband, Byran, and two kids, Josh and Charlotte. As a family we love vegging out and watching movies together, as well as fishing and spending time at the lake during the summer. 

Paperback or Kindle? 

Paperback! I love the smell of a book when you open it. Several years ago for my birthday, my husband surprised me and took me to an estate sale of a family who had owned a bookstore. They had a huge warehouse on their property that was absolutely full of books. I spent at least three hours combing through the books and was lucky enough to find a first edition of “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. It was the best birthday surprise! 

 

Rocio | Legal Assistant

Talking with insurance companies is at the top of the list, as is helping prepare settlement tables, talking to clients and handling cases. 

What do you love most about your job? 

The people I work with make this job great, everyone is so awesome. I think having a good boss and coworkers is what makes the difference between a bad and a great workplace. I love that we have a workplace where I can openly discuss my views on random things. 

What's your favorite hobby outside of work? 

I am a politics junkie. love to be politically active and campaign (at a local, state, and national level ) for women’s health issues and equality, education, immigration, economically disadvantaged people, etc. I love doing anything outdoors. Also, baseball. I want to be an umpire. 

What’s one thing that would be impossible for you to give up? 

Game of Thrones! Ok, yes, I love GoT (a lot!) but also probably chips, and just about everyone here can attest to my chip addiction. 

Kindle or paperback? 

Paperback! Books are friends that smell amazing. You also have to “rescue” books by “adopting” them from a used bookstore. 

 

Sheri | Office Manager

Sheri handles all our bookkeeping duties, assists Mark with HR tasks, processes payroll (thanks Sheri!) and more. 

What do you love most about working at the Anderson Law Firm? 

The coworkers (it feels like family here), the relaxed atmosphere and the variety of work I get to do. 

What's your favorite hobby outside of work? 

My boys are tops on the list. Love doing anything with them. Getting together with family and friends. We try to do something with someone every weekend. I dabble in reading, container gardening, home decorating, movies, cooking and music.  

Cats or dogs? 

Cats rule!

What's one thing that would be impossible for you to give up? 

Music or Coca Cola or Coffee Ice Cream or pasta. There are actually too many that are tied for number one. 

 

 

Sarah | Marketing Director

Sarah's our go-to girl for all things website related, video related, and newsletter related.

What do you love most about the Anderson Law Firm team?

They're what make this job awesome. I love going on walks with Brandi during lunch and gushing about my love for dogs with Imelda. Everyone is so open and friendly and I think we all make a great team. 

What's your favorite hobby outside of work?

I love to cook. I'm always trying new recipes. Sometimes if I'm at a restaurant and see multiple things I want to order I'll save the ideas for later and recreate them at home. I have a lot of fun with it!

Cats or dogs? 

Dogs. I have two - Brutus and Barnaby - and they're fluffy monsters. Emphasis on the monsters. 

If you could solve one world problem, what would it be? 

Homeless and abused animals. I volunteer at the humane society and I can't tell you how many helpless animals come through the shelter on a day to day basis. I wish it was different! 

 

Blanca | Legal Assistant

Blanca helps pre-litigation and the litigation staff with medical, billing records and anything else the case manager might need. 

What do you love most about your job? 

I absolutely love my job and being able to help others in need. Starting with the awesome staff we have. We are all extremely busy and still manage to enjoy work and be happy. We have our own family here at ALF. 

What's your favorite hobby outside of work? 

I am a food junkie so my absolute favorite hobby is going out and trying new places to indulge my appetite - Korean, Thai, and Indian food are my top three. 

What's one thing that would be impossible for you to give up?  

The walking Dead is a big deal in my family. We're glued to the TV when it comes on. I  can’t give up my Zombie show for anything or anyone.

It's Karaoke night - what are you singing? 

I love 80’s music so if I had to choose a song to embarrass myself it would most definitely be Footloose or I Want to Dance with Somebody.

 

Lucy | Paralegal 

Lucy assists the attorneys with things like drafting pleadings, answering discoveries, reviewing medical records and the like. If your case has to go to trial, she's there to ensure it goes smoothly! 

What do you love most about your job? 

It makes me feel good to be able to help our clients when their world has been turned upside down. When clients express their thanks to me at the conclusion of their case, I feel like my work has been worthwhile.

What's your favorite hobby outside of work? 

I like to read - it helps me to relax.

Cats or dogs? 

Dogs! My husband and I have two dogs that are like family to us.

Kindle or paperback? 

I don’t use a Kindle but I do read books on my iPad.

 

 

 

Elisabeth | Pre-Litigation Director

Elisabeth is the director of the pre-litigation team, which means she oversees cases that we're able to settle without filing a lawsuit. 

What do you love most about your job? 

I love so many things about working for the Anderson Law Firm. We have such an amazing team here with wonderful people. What I love the best is that every day we get to help people who are being treated unfairly by the insurance company, and that is so rewarding.

If you could solve one world problem, what would it be?

It would be inequality. I believe that a great deal of the issues we deal with as a society can be traced back to discrimination and inequalities. If we could just learn to treat each other as equal human beings, no matter our ethnicity, our beliefs, and who we love, we could solve so many of the world’s problems.

Kindle or paperback?

As much as I love how easy it is to read on my tablet, there is just something I love about reading an actual book. I’m reading the Harry Potter series with my son right now. Real books bring me back to childhood when I read voraciously, and when books were such an important part of my life. 

 

 

Andie | Mark's Dog

Andie is our favorite four-legged friend! She's a professional sleeper and client-greeter and takes her job very seriously.

What do you love most about the Anderson Law Firm team?

They give me lots of love!

Cats or dogs? 

...

What's your favorite hobby outside of work?

I spend a lot of time sleeping. And eating. I'm nine years old so the days of chasing squirrels are long behind me.
