Overall, the law group hired Abigail because she stood out as a talented, intelligent individual with a good personality and work ethic.

Alegria & Barovick LLP recently hired legal assistant Abigail Okoro to help with its high volume of Social Security disability cases. “We instantly felt the effect of Abigail’s help, and the firm felt less overwhelmed with the growing workload,” said attorney Andrew Barovick, a founding partner of Alegria & Barovick LLP. “Abigail immediately made friends with and was welcomed by the two other legal assistants, thus increasing productivity and boosting morale.”

Okoro will be gathering information from callers, performing initial case evaluations, meeting with Social Security disability clients and signing them up for the law group to take on their cases. “She will also be performing legal research and writing for motions and appeals,” added Barovick. “Overall, the law group hired Abigail because she stood out as a talented, intelligent individual with a good personality and work ethic.”

“I’m enjoying it because there is so much going on. I’m always busy, so I usually feel like I’ve been productive at the end of the day,” noted Okoro. “It’s been rewarding to interact with the clients while helping them put their cases together.”

Okoro, who is fluent in Yoruba (a West African language), is a recent graduate of the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, where she was a member of the Black Law Students Association, Corporate and Commercial Law Society and International Law Society. Okoro is waiting to pass the bar, and once she receives her license will start making court appearances.

“In the near future, the firm plans to seek a bigger office that will accommodate our growing team and workload,” concluded Barovick. “Alegria & Barovick believes in fostering a team environment, and in maintaining our tradition of diversity among employees.”
