Michael J. Swanson and I had the great pleasure of presenting the 2014 Advocate Capital, Inc. / American Association for Justice Paralegal of the Year Award to this year’s winner, Regina Valenti. The ceremony took place in Baltimore, Maryland during the American Association for Justice Annual Convention.
Ms. Valenti is a senior trial paralegal at Herman, Herman & Katz, LLC, in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was nominated by Attorney Leonard Davis who was in attendance along with several of her co-workers and family members to watch her receive the award.
As a senior paralegal, Ms. Valenti handles all aspects of file management, client contact and trials in multi-district litigation, mass torts, personal injury and products liability cases. She is in charge of keeping the entire process running smoothly with her high level of organization and accuracy.
During the award ceremony, Ms. Valenti graciously accepted the trophy and expressed a heartfelt appreciation for the nomination and support from her “family” at Herman, Herman & Katz. She stated, “Knowing that the attorneys I work with are the best in the country, it is quite an honor to have them nominate me for this award. I am proud to represent them and the American Association for Justice.”
Advocate Capital, Inc. and the American Association for Justice recognize the great importance of paralegals, like Ms. Valenti, to the legal profession and are delighted to help recognize the paralegals who work so hard to help trial lawyers achieve justice for their clients.
