President’s Message


It’s That Time of Year!


I can’t remember a time when I didn’t get excited about Spring and Summer.   Planning time off with family and friends to enjoy holidays, outdoor anything and vacations is something I look forward to every year!  So much renewed energy occurs and I try to transfer that mentality into my work as well.  

So let’s embrace the next few months, get energized, revitalized and live life to its fullest.  Here’s a few passing thoughts:

S eminar this Fall will be hosted by our Pinellas Chapter and will be here before you know it!  Get away for a spa weekend October 26-27, 2018  with your peeps and network! 

P andemonium on a daily basis!  Prioritize and breathe!

R ite of Passage - Hats off to our soon to graduate students!  PAF is here to help and assist you to move on to the next level in your profession! 

I  nspire those around you.  You are an amazing person with great professional credentials and work ethic.         

N ever give up or sell yourself short.  There are mentors in our organization to help you in every aspect of your career path! 

G et rid of destructive criticism.  It’s a waste of time and burdens you down - emotionally and professionally.


F riendships - What greater community than our paralegal network in making lifelong friends!

E ventually you’re going to have a really bad day.  Accept the challenge - it makes you stronger.

V alue yourself.  We are entrusted by our superiors to handle a volume of work on a regular basis in a detailed, multi-tasked fashion that creates successful outcomes for our clients. 

E liminate worry.  It’s more difficult to concentrate and focus on the unknown.  Uncertainty cannot give you answers.  Focus on what you do know.
R emember to spend at least ten minutes a day doing absolutely nothing.  Embrace silence - access the quiet part of your brain where wisdom and common sense live.
