Kern County Paralegal Association 2009-2010 Member Awards

Kern County Paralegal Association 2009-2010 Member Awards

The Kern County Paralegal Association (KCPA), located in Bakersfield, California, has named Alberta “Lou” Stoker, CLA as its 2009-2010 Paralegal of the Year. Stoker is employed as a legal assistant by Chain/Cohn/Stiles in Bakersfield. She works primarily in the personal injury department.

Hana Tarin, CLA, who also works for Chain/Cohn/Stiles as a medical legal assistant, was named the Outstanding Member of the Year.
According to its June 2010 newsletter, The Paralegal Post, KCPA just celebrated its 20th anniversary. The organization also has an impressive schedule of different outreach programs each month, including collecting blankets for the homeless, a clothing drive for a local elementary school, and sponsoring a Thanksgiving meal for a local family in need.

Check out the group’s terrific newsletter, which includes a funny article, “You Know You Work In a Law Office When…” – “[t]he fire alarm goes off in the building, and no one in your office moves.”

Good one. Or, when the alarm goes off, you sit there and argue with your co-workers (while still furiously working on whatever has to be filed with the court by the close of business) about whether it’s real or a test for so long that if the building really had been on fire, you, your co-workers – and whatever you were still working on – would have gone down in flames.
