ABOUT STACEY KROOP
I have always loved the law and have worked in law offices or legal departments my entire adult life, first in the public sector and then in the private sector. I’ve served in a range of positions from Legal Executive Secretary to Paralegal and Office Manager, each teaching me about different aspects of the law and each introducing me to people from all walks of life in all kinds of situations.
I attended the Academy for Business Careers in 1979-1980 and immediately went to work in the legal field. Later on I attended the University of New Haven and obtained my Paralegal Certificate in 2000. I enjoyed being back in the classroom so much I continued on and in 2004 received my B.S. in Business Management, also at the University of New Haven. I then went on to receive Certification in Human Resource Management at Gateway Community College in 2006.
Over the years, I’ve worked closely with attorneys in a variety of areas of the law in forums including state, (judicial and administrative agencies), federal, and appellate courts. This work included drafting complaints, preparing discovery responses and objections, preparing appeals, drafting motions, as well as processing personal injury claims, probate matters, and family and landlord/tenant matters.
As Office Manager at Duffy Law, along with the administrative tasks of keeping things running smoothly, I enjoy working as part of a team with people who care so much about helping others and work diligently to get the best outcome possible for all their clients. I witness and feel true compassion every day and come to care about those I come in contact with through the work I do, whether it’s just a friendly voice on the other end of the phone or by supporting the attorneys as they strive to do their best every day in any situation in which they are involved. I am very happy and proud to be part of such a wonderful group of people.
I am passionate about supporting and fundraising for Women’s organizations, whether in health or in business, that help and support each other to be the best possible versions of themselves, as well as children’s groups that care for our young people.
