Bernadette Braun


In my position as a Paralegal, I manage the cases of our Social Security and Workers’ Compensation clients. It brings me a lot of satisfaction to know that the work I do is helping our clients. I also enjoy collaborating with others in the office as we decide how to best approach each individual’s situation.
