CONGRATULATIONS LINDSEY BAKER!
For those who haven’t heard Lindsey was honored as the Family Law Court Coordinator of the year! We all know how hard she and the rest of the Court Coordinators work. I feel safe in saying neither the Judges, nor we could do our jobs but for their great work. Please make it a point to tell Lindsey CONGRATULATIONS!
