Dulce is a member of our Client Support Specialist team. She works cross-functionally to support the case managers and attorneys in preparing documents and providing service to our clients. She is an integral part of the process that helps clients prepare their estate plans. She helps clients by answering their questions, finalizing their documents, and maintaining updates on their matters. Coming to the firm from the healthcare industry, Dulce is familiar with the many types of situations families might struggle with and need legal support to care for their loved ones. That has been beneficial to both Dulce and the clients she helps. Dulce is one of our team members at Surprenant & Beneski that speaks Portuguese. She is more than happy to translate during client meetings.
What do you like about working at the firm?
I enjoy the freedom to work at my pace and the fact that I work with many coworkers who are always ready to answer my questions regarding our clients and their work.
What are your personal values that drive you?
Knowing I’ve accomplished a client’s concern about something, regardless of how severe or minimal it is. When on the phone, it’s the sound of their trust that I will help, and if I can’t, I will find someone who can.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
Anything outdoors, I’m always up for an adventure. I most definitely enjoy ice cream and will travel to try out these cute spots! Lastly, within the last couple of years, I have found my love for plants and currently have about 15 at home and 10 in my office.
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
Hmmm… “I’m like a bird” by Nelly Furtado! I may have been a bird in my past life!
What do you want our clients to know about you?
I come from a very Portuguese family. Both of my parents were born in Portugal and I was able to spend my summers growing up at my grandparents’ home in Murtosa, Portugal. It’s where I learned most of my Portuguese speaking skills. I haven’t been back since becoming a young mom, but it’s on my bucket list. I’m a mom to two teenagers.
