While a case load of 300 is considered standard at GoldenbergLaw, legal assistant Ben Stellpflug has always gone above and beyond.
Handling 450 cases, with litigation that wasn’t consolidated, he fielded client calls, untangled the complexities of each case, and often stayed into the wee hours of the morning to meet filing deadlines, said associate attorney Marlene Goldenberg.
More than that, Stellpflug knew each client and not just by name. “He knew about each person, and I know this made a tremendous difference in the level of service we have been able to provide our clients,” Goldenberg said.
For Stellpflug, it’s been a passion as well as a vocation. “I really do enjoy almost every aspect of my role with the firm,” he said. “I love the fact that no two days are ever the same. The variety and complexity of the work is what has really kept me intrigued.”
This fall, he’ll take the next step in his legal career by attending Mitchell Hamline School of Law. “I believe that our legal system is a powerful and integral entity, with a lot of room to grow and improve,” he said. “I look forward to advancing my foothold in it.”
