Denise is a paralegal in the Construction practice area of our Charlotte office, and has extensive experience in construction litigation. Her skills include:
- Drafting pleadings and discovery documents
- Reviewing documents produced in litigation
- Document organization
- Preparation of deposition
- Trial exhibits
- Drafting settlement documents
- All aspects of deposition, mediation, arbitration, and trial preparation
She began her legal career in a very small law firm and continued taking on more responsibility, working her way into the role of legal assistant, and finally advancing to paralegal after joining Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP.
Denise has gleaned a great deal of knowledge from her experiences being involved with several large trials in the Construction group. She says her favorite part is dealing with the massive amounts of documents such trials require.
Outside of the office, Denise and her husband are kept busy with their 11-year-old son and nurturing his interest in travel baseball. She loves reading, going to the beach, shopping, and spending time with her family, friends, and 2 dogs.
