OUR TEAMWe're in this together


Lourdes has more than thirty years of experience as a paralegal with a background working in intellectual property, corporate, litigation and family law matters.  Her extensive interaction with the clients throughout the process and her considerable experience with high-asset and complex cases allow her to offer valuable insight.  She received her paralegal certification through the National Association of Legal Assistants’ Paralegal Certification program, a credential recognized by the American Bar Association to indicate a high level of professional achievement. She subsequently received her Advanced Certified Paralegal designation, a designation held by only six paralegals in New Hampshire.

Since 2004, Lourdes has worked with Margaret on high-asset and complex divorces.  Her years of experience in that niche make her valuable and insightful.  She maintains contact with clients and awareness of their cases, and creates initial drafts of legal documents, correspondence, and pleadings.  Lourdes is extremely helpful to clients during the discovery process.  She assists clients with drafting answers and objections to interrogatories, organizes document productions, drafts necessary financial summaries and statements, and updates disclosures when needed. In litigated matters, Lourdes summarizes depositions, locates and interviews witnesses, prepares subpoenas and arranges for service, interacts directly with experts, organizes key documents for expert review, prepares exhibits, and attends mediation, depositions, hearings, and trials.

Before her thirty years as a paralegal, Lourdes worked at a certified public accounting firm.  That experience provided her with knowledge of financial statements and tax returns, and the skill to effectively gather and organize required financial information for clients and their businesses.  Lourdes prides herself on her professionalism, exceptional attention to detail, knowledge of the process, and compassionate nature.  Her involvement reduces many burdens of divorce that would otherwise fall upon clients and reduces stress during a difficult time.
