Patricia Walters, paralegal, is a true “people person.” Pat has spent her entire career in the legal field, working in law firms in the Twin Cities. Pat started as a legal secretary who showed self- initiative to draft discovery responses, charges of discrimination, and other documents for the lawyers she supported. Based on her work, the attorneys saw her potential and moved her quickly into the paralegal role.
Pat enjoys working with clients, listening to their stories and working with them behind the scenes to make sure they receive the outcome they deserve. Pat’s interest in justice is grounded in her compassion for people who are mistreated, an interest that has been part of Pat’s life for many years. Pat can remember seeing kids being bullied in high school and wanting to help them. Now, in her role as paralegal, she enjoys being active in helping clients solve their problems and find resolution.
Pat is originally from Luverne, Minnesota (25 miles east of Sioux Falls, SD), and she received her education from Granite Falls Vocational Technical Institute (Legal Secretary Certification). Pat is active in her community and has been a volunteer for 18 years.
Pat and her husband enjoy fishing, boating, and four-wheeling (year-round). Pat’s advice to those starting out in the legal field: No two lawyers are the same, and you need to learn to work well with each particular lawyer.
