Michigan Lawyers Weekly Recognizes Becky Ballard as an “Unsung Legal Hero” for 2021

We are delighted to share that legal administrative assistant Becky Ballard has been named to Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s 2021 class of “Unsung Legal Heroes.”

The Unsung Legal Hero award honors law firm employees who consistently go above and beyond the call of duty, often behind the scenes. The honor is reserved for the most talented and dedicated legal support professionals in the state.

Shareholder Katie Pacynski wrote this in support of Becky’s nomination:

No one works harder than Becky. She has been my assistant for many years, and I continue to be impressed by her absolute dedication while she balances tremendous family demands.

Becky knows my docket like the back of her hand, and she is on top of everything. She anticipates my requests, has all necessary paperwork completed before I even have to ask, and seeks to understand WHY we do things. Becky has strong attention to detail and does whatever is needed without complaint. She not only has to deal with me (a person who, admittedly, has unreasonably high expectations), but she also supports Paul Palinski, one of our busiest attorneys.

COVID has been especially difficult for Becky. She has five children (the youngest still in elementary school) and four grandchildren, many of whom live with her, and she regularly helps her brother, a single father with full custody of his nine children. 

I cannot think of someone more deserving than Becky to be recognized for all she does.

A ten-year veteran of The Dobrusin Law Firm, Becky is an essential part of what we do and a valued member of our family. Congratulations, Becky!
