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.
Receptionist Kelly Gamewell joined the firm in 1997 and 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. Amanda Ramsey has been legal assistant to Walker Friedman and Christian Tucker since 2001. The firm would not be the same without these four as they have an average tenure of nearly 20 years each of keeping Friedman, Suder & Cooke at its best.
Our “newer” (but just as crucial) additions of paralegal Cathy Daus and office assistant Cathleen Peace have been with the team 10 years and legal assistant Ericca Klein joined us in late 2015. The newest team member, office assistant Tim Cone, joined the team in 2017.
