Rockafellow Law Firm's New Employee and Long-time Friend Karen Joins the Staff
Our new receptionist/bookkeeper/director of first impressions is Karen Harrington. This is not Karen’s first time working at Rockafellow Law Firm.
Karen worked for us in the same position from 1982-1984. She brought with her a vast skill set including certified property appraiser, bank teller, bookkeeper, customer service representative and jewelry salesperson.
After leaving Rockafellow Law Firm in 1984, Karen returned to a job with Pima County and became Supervisor in the Public Works Department. Her duties included payroll, recruitment, hiring, being responsible for attending Merit Commission hearings, and working closely with the County Attorney’s office on Civil Rights actions, and Criminal Behavior of County Employees. Karen retired from her Pima County position in 2006. .
Karen has large shoes to fill. Arlene Oliver held this position from 1986 to 2006 when she retired. Cheryl Burns took over and held the position from 2006 to 2019 when she retired. Karen was asked to come out of retirement, and return to Rockafellow Law Firm. She said “yes” and we are thrilled to have her back.
Karen is the cheerful voice you hear when you call Rockafellow Law Firm and are greeted with a friendly “Hello and thank you for calling The Rockafellow Law Firm.”
Karen has two sons, two daughters in law, and four grandchildren. She also has two turtles and a very spoiled eight-month old kitten. She recently fulfilled a lifelong dream and completed a sky dive. (It’s OK to call her “jumper.”)
Please join us in welcoming Karen to our family. Karen, we are so glad that you have rejoined us after all these years!
