When you hire a law firm to handle your case, the personal injury paralegal assigned to the case will have significant responsibility for managing day-to-day tasks, including gathering your medical records and medical bills, proof of lost income and assisting you in dealing with handling your bills, dealing with debt collectors and helping you to get back on your feet. In addition to those skills, a medical malpractice paralegal must also be experienced and knowledgeable in reading and understanding medical records and working with the attorneys on the team to present the malpractice case at a hearing or jury trial. There are few experienced paralegals who possess this full-range of skills
Lucky for us, Des is one of them. For almost 14 years, Des has worked as a paralegal specializing in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Des understands the process better than anyone, and often helps counsel and advise clients on how to handle their unpaid medical bills, deal with medical liens, and navigate the complexities of getting back to life after something terrible and unexpected has happened.
Des is a kind and caring person who is beloved by clients and respected by opposing counsel and insurance adjusters alike.
“People in this business tend to work hard,” says Taylor Asen, “but Des is the hardest working person I know. The only time she is hard to reach is during a Red Sox playoff game.”
