My pick is Kait for putting together an amazing GLF 21st Birthday Party!  She worked tirelessly to make sure everything was taken care of, from casino blackjack dealers, to "GLF Currency" for our clients, photo booths, invites, decorations, and fabulous food. Everyone had an amazing time, and it was all thanks to Kait! Great job Kait, for going above and beyond to make sure our clients had the best possible time.  Not only does Kait handle all of our marketing, but she answers client's questions, handles phone calls, and assists with client estate planning.  She is a vital member of our team and is always warm and welcoming to every client that walks through our door!

Kait is truly the face of the office. She answers every client call with a smile and is dedicated to each and every client to reach the best possible outcome for them. Countless times last month, she spent hours on the phone with clients and their advisors to resolve funding issues. She really goes above and beyond. Our clients always praise Kait for a job well done and I'm happy to vote for her for Team Member of the month for the month of February. Not only is she dedicated to our clients, but she threw an amazing party that will go down in the GLF history books! Kait, thank you for all you do. As a co-worker, friend, and client liaison, you are truly appreciated!

Kait worked really hard to put together our firm's 21st birthday party and it was a huge success! She has also taken on more tasks while our firm's structure is being reorganized. She's positive and we always love laughing with Kait. Yay Kait!

Congrats to Kait as our Team Member of the Month!

In January, Kait took extra initiative with client files, customer service, events and other aspects of the Firm. Kait has always been positive and can always brighten your day. Kait is working extra hard with the planning of The Goralka Law Firm's 21st Birthday Party (you should RSVP!) so it will be an exceptionally special event. Thank you for your help, Kait!

I wouldn't get through my work day without a laugh from Kait Manning. She is such a valuable asset to our firm and we are sincerely lucky to have her! Thank you for all you do, Kait!

I nominate Kait Manning as Team Member of the Month for January 2017.

Clients (and us!) appreciate Kait's friendly and helpful demeanor both in person and over the phone.

I really don't understand how she is able to accomplish so much while answering so many questions throughout the day but she does it!

Rachel helped tremendously in December by drafting special documents for different trusts and transactions. With end-of-year deadlines and questions from clients, Rachel was a helpful source for all of our questions.

When she is not working or studying she enjoys cuddling with her two sweet puppies, riding her bike around Sacramento and cheering on her San Francisco Giants!

The team had the following comments about Jennifer:

Jennifer Barcellos! Jennie is constantly picking up extra tasks and making sure everyone knows what they're doing. She even remembers to do things that I mention in passing before I have a chance to do them. When mistakes are made, she is always willing to help come up with a solution to the problem at that moment and also to make a plan to prevent it happening in the future. Even though she is super busy with work and law school, she always has a smile on her face and never puts her stress on anyone else. I'm not sure how she does it!

My pick is Jennie. She has been handling the daily operations of the law firm while completing her first semester of law school! We are so proud of her and thankful to have her as the firm business director. She offers key support on daily administrative tasks and support on major transactions and agreements for clients, all while attending law school at night. She always has a smile on her face and encourages and uplifts everyone around her, hats off to Jennie!

Lindsey:

Lindsey is a paralegal working on a wide range of matters. Lindsey also oversees the Corporate Shield Program. Lindsey recently graduated from Chico State with a double major in Business Administration and Political Science. Lindsey is originally from the Bay Area (Go Giants!) and recently moved to Sacramento to pursue her legal career. In Lindsey's spare time she likes to take trips to Lake Tahoe. Lindsey also has corgi mix named Summit.

The team had the following comments about Lindsey:

Lindsey has had to tackle learning a lot of new tasks this month and has handled it with aplomb.

My vote for November is Lindsey. Lindsey is the first person in the office and the last one to leave every day. She is an extremely hard worker and is committed to completing each task to the very best of her abilities. In the past couple months Lindsey has taken on many more responsibilities within the office while still juggling many of her previous responsibilities. Lindsey is ALWAYS in a good mood and lifts everyone's spirits just by being her sweet self. Thank you Lindsey, we appreciate you!

Congrats to Jennifer and Lindsey as our Team Members of the Month!

My vote for August is for Kiran. She comes to work every day with a positive attitude and a smile on her face. Since she started she has hit the ground running.

  • Kait is an essential asset to our team. She is extremely thorough, organized and genuine. She goes the extra mile to help any team member as well as the boss. She comes to work with a smile every day and conveys her kindness through every email, phone call and client interaction. We are so lucky to have her!
