Cherokee Debuff It’s time for another AVA Spotlight! This time our spotlight has scanned the skies and landed on a vital AVA Team member-Cherokee Debuff, Legal Assistant. Cherokee is located in AVA’s Billings office, she brings a can-do assertive attitude to the office, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention how very fun […]
Our first Spotlight shines down on an integral part of the AVA Law Group team - Ms. Taylor McBurney, Legal Assistant. Located in our Billings, MT office, Taylor is an AVA Superhero that goes to battle daily for our clients. We got a chance to sit down and chat with Taylor, read on to find out all the Super details.
How long have you been with AVA?
6 months (since September 6th, 2022)
Is or was your dream to be a lawyer?
Yes, my goal in starting here was always to learn more about the practice of law to further my eventual goal of becoming an attorney.
If yes, why?
I want to become an attorney to have the ability to stick up for myself and others in our community and nation. I want to stand up against corporations and those with influence and power, who win battles simply by throwing money at them. I would eventually love to write legislation and/or lobby our state congress for change in the way we fund our schools, foster our children, and run our healthcare system.
Favorite part of your current role?
Learning SO MUCH every single day from my wonderful mentors Kasodie, Teague, and Andrew.
Painting, Skiing, Hiking
IF YOU COULD BE A SUPERHERO OR HAVE A SUPERPOWER WHAT OR WHOM WOULD IT BE?
Hypnosis- I would make all our U.S. Congress people agree to term limits and a salary cap! Perhaps I'd get a billionaire celebrity or two to build homes for the homeless, donate to underfunded schools, and fund free mental health and rehab clinics too!
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE?
I love working here, but I'm leaving in August to start my law school journey at the University of Montana. I hope to be back as an attorney in four years. It's a very bittersweet situation, I've only been here 6 months but this time has had a huge impact on me and I'll be forever grateful for the time I was allowed to be a part of AVA Law Group.
WITH AWESOME PEOPLE LIKE TAYLOR WORKING WITH US TO WIN THE FIGHT FOR THE GREATER GOOD, AND VICTIMS EVERYWHERE; OPTIMISM IS SOOOO EASY!
