Brian Smalley is one of our workers’ compensation paralegals.
What did you learn on the job that everyone should know?
For the job, or life in general, “The Four Agreements”, a short book by Miguel Ruiz, offers practical goals that I can strive to achieve each day, 1) Be impeccable with your word; 2) Don’t take anything personally; 3)Don’t make assumptions; 4)Always do your best.
What’s the most interesting case you’ve worked on?
Every case is interesting because every case has a story. To the injured worker their injury may be a life changing event. The injured worker deserves not just great legal guidance but compassion, respect and dignity. I often tell our clients that this can be a difficult process but you don’t have to do it alone and together we”ll get through it.
What legal wisdom do you give your friends and family?
I always recommend using the right tool for the job and if the job requires an attorney get one and listen to them.
