PSKD Paralegal Judy Felker Named Paralegal of the Year
December 6, 2019 (Milwaukee) Judy Felker, a Paralegal at Milwaukee's Pitman, Kalkhoff, Sicula and Dentice, S.C. (PKSD), was honored today by the Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) as the 2019 Paralegal of the Year.
Judy has worked with plaintiffs exclusively since 1987 and served many years as an office manager. Throughout these years, Judy has demonstrated superior and extensive experience and knowledge of various aspects of personal injury law.
As a paralegal she has worked on various claims and cases, including medical malpractice, products liability, mass torts, nursing home abuse and general liability matters (including auto and truck accidents).
Throughout her career she has served as a paralegal in complex litigation cases involving multiple defendants and various unique claims. There have been instances when Judy has aided her colleagues through complex, multi-week trials. She has also taught and assisted other paralegals with whom she has worked.
"One of Judy's greatest strengths is her ability to relate to clients. She is able to help them through what can be a difficult process, listening to their concerns and counseling them where appropriate. Simply put - she is the best of the best," said Attorney Angela Dentice, with whom she has worked for over three decades.
