Richelle developed an interest in law after working for three years as a Legal Assistant at a Personal Injury firm located in downtown Chicago. She also had the benefit of working with a subrogation firm as a Recovery Analyst, dealing with a variety of medical and auto insurance companies. After starting school at Wilbur Wright College, she participated in the internship program at The Center for Disability and Elder Law. It was through this program that she became greatly familiar with Elder Law, Advanced Directives, Wills and Guardianships. She is very excited to be working as a Paralegal for Bott & Associates, Ltd. where she is pursuing her career in Estate Planning, Probate and Elder Law. Richelle has an Associate’s Degree in Art and Design from Columbia College Chicago and a Paralegal Degree from Wilbur Wright College, both located in Chicago, Illinois. She plans on continuing her education so that she can eventually become a practicing attorney. She currently lives in Chicago with her two small children where they spend most of their free time visiting water parks, amusement parks and the zoo.
