Working with Attorney Kelly Massicotte to Fight for Workers’ Compensation Claimants in Vermont

Tasha Turner, Paralegal

I graduated from Castleton University with an A.S. in Criminal Justice and a B.A. in Sociology. While in college, I was able to work as an intern with the Department of Probation & Parole, then after I graduated I was employed as a correctional officer with the Vermont Department of Corrections. Although working with inmates was rewarding, I came to the realization that I wanted to help people earlier in the legal process, which is why I chose to become a paralegal.

In 2008, I began working at BFS when I was hired to be a paralegal for our disability cases. Early in 2016, I transitioned into being Attorney Massicotte’s paralegal for her workers’ compensation claims.

I really enjoy getting to know our clients and helping them through the legal process with as little stress as possible. The most rewarding part of my job is being able to help the people in our community get the benefits that they deserve.

"I help the people in my community fight for the benefits that they deserve."
"My legal team from BFS was Heidi Groff and Christine O’Neill. They expertly guided me through the legal process of my workman’s comp claim. All my questions were answered by phone or e-mail in a timely fashion. The final outcome was very adequate and I thank my team and the staff at BFS for all their help."
