Tami Crittendon – Receptionist
I have been with the firm for 15 years as receptionist/office manager. I’m currently working on my Associates of Applied Science in Paralegal Studies. I work with a great group of employees that are also my friends. The passion Mark shows for his work and the compassion he has for his clients set an amazing example for all of us. Bankruptcy can be a difficult and personal experience. There’s no better feeling than when a client leaves with a thank you and a sigh of relief because we have helped them.
Deborah Blansett – Paralegal
I’m a native Texan and very proud of it. I am an avid gardener, which is why I love Texas. I have been employed with Rubin & Associates for a little over 5 years, but I have worked in the Bankruptcy field for more than 19 years. I feel blessed to be working with Mr. Rubin and everyone here. We are more than just employees and co-workers – we are friends and we care about each other. This care and concern carries over to our clients, by striving to help them get through the stress of their situation. I enjoy being able to lend them a sympathetic ear when they feel the need for one.
Matthew Shipley – Senior Paralegal
I’ve always had an affinity for numbers since I was young. I attended college at the University of Texas at Austin School of Business and the University of North Texas School of Accounting. I have worked in Bankruptcy Law since 1992. I have been with Rubin & Associates for ten years now. I enjoy using my analytical skills while working to help people deal with the stress of financial troubles.
Robin Truitt – Senior Paralegal
I have worked in bankruptcy for over 20 years, 16 of which have been at Rubin & Associates. I have been accused of treating my job as if it is my second husband. This may be true. I certainly feel passionate and connected to what I do. What I value most about my job is being able to share the wisdom I have gained from the time that I have dedicated to this field of law. I am able to bring up perspectives for clients that they may not have considered as they are fighting their finances and trying to get back on track. Bankruptcy is not an easy choice, nor is it an easy process. But when you complete your case and begin your fresh start, you will come away knowing more and being better for it. Trust me, I see it every day.
Laurelin Outman – Legal Assistant
Having spent the last 15 years working in various countries and states, I’ve gained lots of insight into working with people. While attending college, my favorite courses were psychology & math. Through those experiences, the thing that resonates most with me is all people want to be heard and treated with respect. Working at Rubin & Associates allows me to do just that. As co-workers, we are all working towards the same goal of setting our clients on a path to financial freedom. I leave work daily feeling happy that I helped our clients and happy that I have such fun and sweet co-workers.
