Meet Our Senior Associate Janine Kalagher-McGuire

I joined Conrad & Scherer in 1996 basically right out of law school. While some of the faces may have changed, it’s always been a group of dedicated and hard-working professionals who are passionate about what they do. I have been very lucky to work in that kind of environment. I’m very happy to help celebrate the 45th anniversary of the firm.

I think my legal philosophy would be, and I don’t know if it’s a legal philosophy per se, but to always seek truth and justice. That’s what I love about my job, helping people. And in being an advocate you are helping people that are in need of assistance. And that’s what I enjoy about working at Conrad & Scherer.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve worked with an organization called Hope Southern Florida. What they do is provide rapid rehousing and emergency assistance for veterans and homeless families, mainly single moms with children. I’ve worked on the board that puts together their gala. Where they raise much needed funds to support the organization. Also, I’ve made sandwiches, and I’ve organized clothes in different size categories for them to be able to get what they need. I really enjoy working with them, It’s a fabulous organization. I like to help people, and that’s what I love about my job at Conrad & Scherer. Helping people who are in need of assistance.
