Meet Your Support Staff
Melinda (aka Mindy) has been with the firm for over forty years, since she was a young girl out of business college. She has literally grown up with the firm. The thing she likes most about this firm is the fact that they truly care about their clients and fighting for the client’s rights. She still finds her job interesting after all these years because of the variety of clients and cases the attorneys handle.
Business Development Manager
Lorraine has been with the firm since 1981. She enjoys working here because “we are a plaintiff firm and my job is rewarding because we help people during a difficult time in their life resulting from personal injury claims.” What she likes most about the firm is that everyone, including partners, associates and staff, work together as a team. Over the years, the firm has participated in a variety of team building activities including skiing and river rafting. Also, the Partners support their employees both professionally and personally.
Currently, Lorraine is a Board Member of the Century City Chamber of Commerce and was named Outstanding Woman of Achievement (2002) by the Century City Chamber of Commerce. She is also a recipient of the President’s Award from the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (1998, 2000 and 2001). She was a Spokesperson for the American Cancer Society inspired by a personal experience with breast cancer. In May, 2002, Lorraine established The Lorraine Jackson Foundation which provides college scholarships for children who have lost a parent due to breast cancer.
Jan has over 30 years as a paralegal in many areas of the law, but particularly personal injury. She especially enjoys the challenge of medical malpractice cases where crucial details are often buried in voluminous records as well as the sometimes hectic atmosphere of a team working to get justice for injured plaintiffs. In her spare time, Jan enjoys travel, reading history books, sporting events (especially NFL games), visiting historical sites and exploring museums, keeping up on current events and world politics and squeezing in the odd round of golf.
Beverly has been with Cheong & Denove since 1978. She handles everything from paying bills, preparing records for taxes to tracking the accounting on clients’ cases. She enjoys boating, skiing and playing with her 5 grandchildren in her time away from work.
