Tell us about your background
I was born and raised in America, but moved to England when I was 19 to attend university in London. My 1 year abroad turned into almost 13 years of living, studying and working in England. I worked as a litigator in England performing Plaintiff only work. I came back to the US in the summer of 2012 with my young children for a vacation, but ended up getting a temp job in the transvaginal mesh department in one of the nation’s largest Plaintiffs’ litigation firms. A 6 week assignment turned into 5 ½ years of work there.
In the last 3 years of my time working in a law firm, it was very hard to find both good legal assistants and paralegals to work in the department. I cannot begin to calculate the immense amount of time (as well as costs) spent on interviews and training, which took me away from my own workload. When a new starter would then leave the firm, I would have to go through their work to see what was done and not done as well as do my own work, with the whole hiring cycle recommencing. It was inefficient, costly and due to the above mentioned issues, I decided to start Torres Legal Services as to provide a solution to the issues.
When I was a child, I wanted to save the world, but I was not sure how I could achieve that dream and eventually I found the answer in a legal career. When a person pursues a case whether it lasts a few months or years, it definitely consumes their lives and lives of their family and friends. The case is always on a person’s mind, it causes a lot of stress, worry, and anxiety – it can become their whole world. The law can be confusing and hard to understand. The law allows me to save the world – case by case. I have the experience of a litigator and senior paralegal with American and international experience.
Aren’t most of these functions are handled within the law firm?
Outsourcing is a great option to law firms, because Torres Legal Services can start work on projects, almost immediately and we act as an extension to the firm’s team. It eliminates precious time from staff lost to interviewing and training new staff. In addition, firms do not have to incur the cost associated with recruitment, salary and benefits of new staff (not forgetting the IT costs and office space needs). By outsourcing work, law firm staff can focus solely, on bringing in new cases and growing their business and leave administrative tasks such as medical reviews to Torres Legal Services.
We are trained and well versed in HIPAA rules to make sure that all security protocols are followed.
