Annette provides litigation support to the attorneys of the firm, working files from intake through trial. She started her career more than twenty years ago as a legal assistant at a major New York City Insurance defense firm where she assisted one of the main partners with every aspect of his case management. She continued her legal career in house at an insurance company as a claims support specialist before transitioning to the management of her family’s commercial lawn care and sprinkler business where she oversaw office operations for the growing company. When she decided to return to the law, she joined the Noll Law Firm, where she uses her tremendous interpersonal and organizational skills to benefit our clients. In her free time she is heavily involved with the Parent Teacher Associations of her children’s schools and serves as a liason for her school district with other local civil organizations. She takes every opportunity to be involved in her children’s academic and extra-curricular activities.
My role at the Noll Law Firm is to gather, review, and assess medical documentation attached to every client. We strive to ascertain and understand the fundamental aspects of client’s medical history and injuries sustained to support each of our client’s cases.
Prior to joining the Noll Law Firm, I spent many years working as a Registered Nurse in emergency rooms and critical care units. Additionally, I spent several years working as a Rehabilitation Nurse for insurance companies with the main goal of getting our respective clients back to work, if possible. This goal was accomplished with assessing the needs of each individual client, such as attending medical visits to better understand the physicians’ goals in his treatment and making sure these goals were implemented and maintained. These experiences afforded me the ability to understand the science and treatments behind many of our client’s injuries.
