Legal Secretary: Legal Administrative Assistant, Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice
Not one, not two, but three Baker Sterchi attorneys nominated Karen Leabig as an Unsung Hero.
Leabig draws from a well of 25 years’ experience. She’s been behind the scenes of Baker Sterchi Cowden & Rice for just over four years.
“I strive to be organized, productive and ensure workflow is completed in a timely manner,” Leabig said.
She assists members John Mahon and Ted Williams as well as former Judge Michael P. David, who is of counsel at the firm.
In her role, Leabig assists attorneys from the start of a case — the initial assignment letter from the client and conflict check, setting up the case, preparing court filings, updating case files and assisting with discovery and docketing — to the case’s end.

What is something that would surprise people about you?
I have a twin brother — Keith!
