Branch Johnson-Roets isn’t a new face at Schaefer Halleen; he was with the firm as a legal administrative assistant back in 2019. Branch relocated to Berkeley, California with his wife in August of 2019, and he was working at Reed Smith LLP as a records clerk when the pandemic hit California hard. When we heard Branch was looking for remote work, we were happy to have him back at Schaefer Halleen!
As a legal administrative assistant, Branch has aided our attorneys by performing administrative duties, filing, data management, and other legal support skills. He remains an active member of the team while working remotely by managing data entry, sending correspondence, and other remote administrative duties.
Branch has channeled several of his passions into past careers. For many years and through several programs, he has coached swimming for children from age five all the way up to varsity high school teams. Branch also taught Norwegian to 9-12 year olds during his time as a teaching assistant.
Branch attended Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Nordic Studies in 2017.
