A top-notch litigation practice requires a top-notch staff, and FSC is proud not only of its ability to find the best, but also of its ability to keep them. In a mobile world, where talented people can easily move from firm to firm, staff longevity is one of the surest markers of a well-run office.
Carol Cameron, our firm administrator, has been here from the beginning in 1993, and has calmly and cheerfully overseen tornado-driven location changes, lawyer and staff additions, technology improvements and expansions, and everything else that goes into the making of a 21st-century legal practice.
Two years later, in 1995, Amy Hermesch began as Mike Cooke’s legal assistant; receptionist Kelly Gamewell joined the firm in 1997. In 1998, both Cindy Dunn—paralegal for Jon Suder, Mike Cooke, and the entire IP-litigation side of the firm—and Dawn Putnam, Jon’s legal assistant, came on board. (For those keeping score, as of 2013 that’s an impressive average tenure of nearly 17 years each in these five positions.)
Amanda Ramsey has been legal assistant to Walker Friedman and Christian Tucker since 2001, and our newer additions of paralegal Cathy Daus, and office assistants Cathleen Peace and Albert Sanchez, round out FSC’s superb staff.
