GARFIELD & HECHT, P.C. PAULA, OUR PROUD LL.M GRADUATE
We are extremely pleased to announce that Paula Ricceri has recently graduated with the highest honors from Washington University, School of Law, in St. Louis, Missouri, with a Legum Magister (LL.M), which will entitle her to sit for the bar exam, fully transfer her foreign legal studies degree, and practice law in the U.S.
A foreign attorney in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Paula also earned a Master in Business Administration (M.B.A.), Magna Cum Laude from Colorado State University and is now looking forward to an exciting new path in her professional career. Paula has collaborated with our senior litigation team, including our shareholder and Colorado Super Lawyer, David L. Lenyo, for the past ten years performing high-profile litigation work for both individual and corporate clients. Paula has had a key role in the active management of evidence and attended complex trials in both the Colorado district and federal courts. Paula’s consistent and customary practice to continuously deliver outstanding work product directly contributed to the stellar performance of the litigation attorneys she worked for and projects assigned to her ultimately producing exceptional results for our clients.
The firm has gladly provided ongoing support and guidance for Paula to advance her legal education and transfer her international legal credentials to continue to build a successful legal career. Paula is an example of the firm’s fundamental principle which recognize that, with a strong work ethic, unrelenting discipline, profound respect and love for the legal profession, even the toughest goals can be achieved. In her spare time, Paula enjoys doing pro bono legal work for non-profit organizations, including The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado, which the firm sponsored this past Christmas while affirming the firm’s leading culture and conviction to always give back. Congratulations to Paula on this remarkable academic accomplishment!
