When I was hired as an office assistant here at the Law Offices Of Charles P. Boylston, I was a junior in college with no particular interest in law. Really, I was just looking to support myself while I focused on finishing school. Before long, though, I realized how much I genuinely enjoyed the work and wanted to pursue the legal profession further. And so, in 2014, I enrolled in law school.
Over the course of the three years that followed, I continued working alongside Charles and Maggie, both of whom were very encouraging of my legal education. Unsurprisingly, I took on more and more responsibility at the firm as my knowledge of the law increased, and Charles was an excellent mentor throughout the entire process.
I love my work because it gives me the opportunity to solve real problems for real people. Clients come to us when they’re in the midst of an unfamiliar, frustrating legal dispute, and we get to help turn their situation around. What makes us different, I think, is that we are just as effective and professional as high-dollar law firms, yet our approach is entirely different. Rather than trying to intimidate or confuse clients with a lot of big legal words, we simply sit down with them and have a straightforward conversation about their situation. It may not be what people expect from an office of legal professionals, but our commitment is to solving problems, not keeping up appearances.
At our firm, we are people first and attorneys second.
