Angela Johnson Celebrates 10th Year with Reese-Beisbier & Associates

Angela_10

The Reese-Beisbier team congratulates Paralegal, Angela Johnson, on her tenth anniversary with the firm. Way to go Angela!

An incredible force in the firm, Angela continues to provide a vital role as a go-to source of information in the company. As the firm’s longstanding paralegal, other employees know they can come to her for case assistance and for honest feedback.

Angela’s relationship with Tera Reese-Beisbier began while she was in the American Bar Association’s paralegal training program. While enrolled in school, Angela was in need of legal counsel with a family law attorney for a potential contempt action against her ex-husband. Angela reached out to an instructor and attorney named Tom Bishop about recommending a family law attorney. The instructor was quick to mention a new attorney (then in 2001) in Forsyth County named Tera and that she was the talk of the town. Angela reached out to Tera, and the two hit it off. Angela retained Tera as her attorney throughout the proceedings.

Three years after Angela’s legal proceedings ended and Angela was wrapping up her paralegal studies, Tera reached out to Angela to find out whether she would be interested in joining the Reese-Beisbier team. Angela jumped at the opportunity and has remained a vital team member ever since.

Let’s hear from Angela:

“We work very well together,” Angela says. “We’re both very compassionate people, and we have a lot of empathy.”

Empathy is a necessary skill in the family law practice, as the field requires a deep understanding of how to best handle high stakes and emotion-driven situations. These often include divorce cases, but can also include difficult custody disputes and heart wrenching situations of abuse and neglect.
Still, the unique challenges in family law are also the things that keep Angela returning day after day. “I love my job. I wouldn’t want to do any other type of work. I wouldn’t want to work in any other legal field,” Angela says.

So, what’s in store for the next ten years for Angela and the firm? “I hope to see our office growing,” she says. “I’m loyal to Tera and keeping her name well respected in the community; she is held in high regard. Her reputation is important to me. My name is behind hers, I think Socrates said it best, ‘your name is the richest jewel you can possibly possess, once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.’ Tera is a tenacious advocate for her clients, and I take great pride in contributing to her advocacy.”
