I Work at a Law Firm
I work at a law firm. A really great one. The people within it work tirelessly within each of our now three locations to make certain that justice is served for our clients. I, however, am not a lawyer. I'm not a paralegal. Or a legal secretary. I'm not a legal assistant and I don't handle accounting. I'm quite certain that many of the nearly 40 people that work together to make this law firm the most preferred in the region aren't exactly certain what I do here. They know that from my office comes a lot of noise, laughter, occasional frustration and somehow, someway, exciting and interesting things happen.
I am one part of a team of creative minds that help to manage the communications and philanthropic outreach of the firm. What does that mean in real life? Well...it means we wear a ton of hats. Every given day is different. One minute we can be on the phone with Keith Urban's tour manager coordinating a special event for Jamboree in the Hills and the next we can be collaborating with the media to discuss a recent verdict or community issue. Today it could be designing billboards; tomorrow it could be editing a radio commercial or assisting with the Driving For a Cure annual golf scramble for breast cancer survivors. We write press releases, design brochures, coordinate newsletters and execute the social media outreach for the firm. Anywhere across the region, if you see that now very recognizable Bordas & Bordas shield logo, chances are it passed through our hands.
But traditional "marketing" isn't all we do on a day-to-day basis. Last year, Bordas & Bordas worked closely with more than 200 local non-profit organizations and charities to support their events and community outreach. From answering phones at the Easter Seals telethon, working with local high schools to honor students in our own Anti-bully campaign, or partnering with the OVAC, the largest high school athletic conference in the county, our office manages those efforts as well. Giving back to our community is what we do here, and I am honored to have even a small hand in helping to make that happen.
We spin a lot of plates. And it takes a ton of coordinated effort to keep them all turning. Each attorney and staff member at the firm assists the social media effort by writing blogs, making community appearances at events as well as practicing some seriously good law.
I love what I do. And I love even more where I get to do it. I love that my professional runway has brought me here to Bordas & Bordas where I am proud to do my part to creatively share the amazing professional accomplishments of our attorneys, the multiple legal capacities of our firm and the exceptional contributions back to our community.
