Although I have been a litigation “paralegal” for almost 40 years, in essence, I am an “assistant”, whether to lawyers or developers. I have developed a work ethic and specific skill set that thrives for success of any type of team. I am a very dedicated and passionate professional committed to assisting my bosses.

Greg Dugan, President, 262-***-****

Brian Kliesmet, CEO, 414-***-****

Executive Assistant, Shared Parking Manager and Design and Development Committee Member. Although this is not a paralegal job, my legal background and organizational skills were the leading factors to be retained as an assistant for a start-up organization of a commuter train company, with an accompanying real estate development company.

Notice my many titles because once I became effective at a given task, my bosses widened their scope and had me accomplish more complex assignments. I have worked with and assisted our team members of developers, engineers, architects, rail experts and financial professionals.
