If you’ve worked with me over the past year then you’ve
likely had an opportunity to meet my assistant, Nikki Payne. Nikki is the first point of contact a new client has with my office. She walks you through my process, helps you with paperwork, and answers your initial questions. As the case progresses she helps keep the case on track by gathering and often conducting the first review of documents, coordinating schedules, and tracking down recalcitrant opposing attorneys for dates and discovery.
Nikki is a former licensed property/casualty insurance agent. She is also a certified Washington State Legal Secretary. She worked as the assistant to the general counsel and his staff at a nuclear power plant in Washington State, and has extensive conference management work both locally and internationally. And for a while she essentially ran the small town of Tensed (pronounced Ten-sed), Idaho..
