Meet a Team Member Monday: Jennalyn Tew

Boesen Law has grown quite a bit in the last few months. Every Monday, we will be doing a special blog highlighting our new staff. This week, we have the pleasure of interviewing our newest paralegal: Jennalyn Tew!

 

Jennalyn is the paralegal to two of our attorneys. She is a fantastic addition to our Personal Injury team and we are extremely grateful to have her! Here is what she had to say:

 

How long have you worked at Boesen Law?

I have been with Boesen Law since August 3, 2020.

Describe a fun memory/exp0erience you have had since working here?

My favorite memory with Boesen Law so far is a white elephant exchange just before the holidays. It was a gag gift with a picture of Mr. Boesen’s face instead of a flag on the top of a wooden dowel.

What drew you to wanting to work in the legal field?

I was drawn to the legal field because of my own attorney. My attorney was helping me with custody of my daughters and was always there with an objective opinion while still being kind. He was brilliant and honest. I knew from then 2002, that I wanted to help people with the same type of objectivity and kindness.

What do you like most about working in your position and why?

My favorite part of the job is walking with people through some of the hardest times in their lives and seeing them make it out the other side a stronger and more determined person.

How would your friends describe you?

This is a tough question, I’m not sure. I would hope they would say I am fiercely loyal and accepting of people for who they are.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love to read, mostly biographies. Learning about different types of people and their struggles along with how they grew from those struggles is fascinating to me.

Favorite food?

My favorite food is Nachos.

Favorite TV show/ movie?

My favorite movie is the Expendables.

Favorite quote?

My favorite quote is from Gandhi “Live as if you will die tomorrow, learn as if you will live forever.”

Who is your hero?

I don’t necessarily have a hero, but I do admire in one way or another every individual I have ever met or talked to. Everyone is so different and has such different stories, I believe they should all be admired for who they are or who they are trying to become.

Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

Over the next five years, I intend to finish my Ph.D. I am working on and attend and complete law school. I’m not sure if I want to become an attorney after I’m done, but who knows.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy shopping with my kiddos (not sure if retail therapy is a hobby)

What is a career highlight you’re most proud of?

I’m not sure, I’ve experienced so many wonderful things during my career it’s hard to pick one. I would have to say one of my prouder moments throughout my career is hearing my team tell me they trust me.

What career advice would you give to your younger self?

One piece of advice I would tell my younger self would be to be an active listener.

What is one work-related thing you want to accomplish in the next year?

I would like to extend my vocabulary, understanding, and diction.

I like the chance to meet, work with and help people from all different walks of life. My time spent in New York showed me how great it is to meet people who have different backgrounds and personal experiences than myself so I have found that the legal field can offer me some version of that opportunity on a regular basis.

So far, passing the bar and finding a great job this early out of school.

Don’t stop hustling, keep dreaming and be good to people. If you put it out in the universe and work at it, good things will happen.

2. Describe a fun memory/experience you have had since working here.

3. What drew you to wanting to work in the legal field? 

  • Outside of the quintessential Judge Judy shows and the occasional Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney video game, I’ve always had a desire to understand how the world works and how I can help to make it a better place for those of us in it. 

4. What do you like most about working in your position and why? 

  • I have the opportunity to learn from some of the smartest legal minds around and work with hard-working professionals.  

5. What do you like to do in your free time?

  • Now that I am out of law school, if I’m not catching up on the hottest pop culture craze of the past decade, then I’m joyfully spending hundreds of hours on the latest video game. 

6. Favorite Food, Favorite TV show/movie, Favorite Quote.

  • It is hard to pick a single favorite nowadays, but here it goes. My favorite food is La Bandera (Dominican white rice, Red Beans, Chicken, and a nice ripe Avocado). My favorite TV show/movie is Breaking Bad/Black Panther. My favorite quote is “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” by Malcolm X

7. Best piece of (gener000al) advice received?

How long have you worked at Boesen Law?

I have been working here at Boesen Law for one month now.

Describe a fun memory/experience you have had since working here.

A fun memory experience I have had while working here at Boesen Law would be going out into the field to locate a Doctor.

What drew you to wanting to work in the legal field?

My uncle being a chief of police in Aguascalientes, Mexico is what drew me into the legal field. Gathering evidence, facts just sounded like it would be a fulfilling task to complete.

What do you like most about working in your position and why?

The interactions with clients. I enjoy connecting with the clients on a personal level and letting them know that we do care about them and putting a smile on their faces.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my downtime, I enjoy staying active through baseball, softball, or the gym as well as playing video games

Favorite Food, Favorite TV show/movie, Favorite Quote.

Mexican food has to be my favorite, it’s part of my culture. Favorite TV Show has to be Bones, a crime-solving forensic-driven program. “Seek not greatness, but seek truth and you will find both” – Horace Man

Best piece of (general) advice received?

 Be open-minded. Don’t pick and choose what you want to hear.

Talk With a Team Member: Andrea

How long have you worked at Boesen Law?

5 ½ months

Describe a fun memory/experience you have had since working here.

We had a free sign-up for March Madness. Boy was it madness. I thought I was the winner the whole way through, until the final. Neither of my teams was in. Moral of my story… Don’t count your chickens (money) before they hatch.

What drew you to wanting to work in the legal field?

I had always loved watching all the legal TV shows. I was drawn to seeing people helped, supported, and listened to and having a client’s best interest as a primary goal. I knew those were values I had, so here I am. And I love it!

What do you like most about working in your position and why?

People come to us after serious car accidents, they are lost, don’t know how to handle the situation, and most of all hurt. My heart aches to see our clients in pain. I love to spend time listening, encouraging, and at times praying with them. I’ve been involved in motor vehicle accidents, have had chronic spine issues, so I can relate my experiences, which I believe lessons some of their fears, and gives some peace and hope to heal.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Spend time with my beautiful daughter. Sledding, hiking, Elitches Season Pass (water park), swimming, biking, and most important, church on Sunday. She and I always go to service and then volunteer with the 0-2-year-olds at the other 1 or 2 services we have at Summit Church.

Favorite Food, Favorite TV show/movie, Favorite Quote.

Food: Sushi, no doubt.

Favorite TV show/movie: Right now, Bull.

Favorite Quote: Live life, One day at a time.

Best piece of (general) advice received?

If you are in a disagreement, as long as you address it with love, compassion, and sincerity, you’ll have no regrets. [:]

Best piece of (general) advice received?

Stop wondering on the what if and take risks. I was in 5th grade when I was told this. I do not remember who it was but they explained that it is better to live with the fact that you did it and not wonder what could have been.

How long have you worked at Boesen Law?

I’ve worked with Boesen Law for nearly 7 years now!

Describe a fun memory/experience you have had since working here.

It’s hard to pick just one. I’d have to say that one of my fondest memories was having a Chips n Guac birthday party that also had cake too!

What drew you to wanting to work in the legal field?

My falling into the legal field was by fate. I had relocated from another state (yes, I’m a transplant!) and needed a chance. The rest is history!

What do you like most about working in your position and why?

I enjoy problem solving. A lot of what we do everyday involves fixing an issue or helping someone. It is very heartwarming when you can put a smile on someone’s face who may not otherwise have been able to help themselves.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I spend a lot of time gardening, walking outside with my family, and improving my home.

Favorite Food, Favorite TV show/movie, Favorite Quote

Food: Pho and Sushi, Favorite Show: Archer, Favorite Quote: if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

Best piece of (general) advice received?

Never say “Just”. A wise man and wealthy entrepreneur once shared this with me. You never “just” do something. Everything you do is important.[:]
