If your medical malpractice or nursing home abuse case ever goes to litigation, there’s a good chance that Theresa will be the paralegal assigned to your file. Theresa has worked closely with Dean since 2002 and has become an invaluable member of his team. Theresa handles all types of litigation files, but she concentrates her focus primarily in nursing home abuse and medical malpractice cases, since those have extra deadlines and require specialized attention.
Theresa is experienced in taking cases all the way to trial, and she has a special knack for keeping the attorney organized, keeping the experts and other witnesses on schedule, and helping the client remain calm during the entire trial process. Theresa works in our Brandon office.
In her personal life, Theresa has been married for 23 years, has 3 children, 6 grandchildren, and has recently bought her dream house. She loves God, her family, chick flicks, dogs, camping, writing short (and long) stories, and showing off her husband’s classic car collection.
Theresa is also one of the most compassionate souls you’ll ever meet. She’s the type of person who would give you the shirt off her back – or the hair off her head – literally.
In fact, she recently donated 12 inches of her lovely hair to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis, and she even offered to cut off her braid at work so that the Dean Burnetti Law sign was in her photos. What a sweet lady!
