TERESA D. MALIK

Florida Registered Paralegal


Teresa Malik was born in Central Florida and has been a dedicated family law paralegal for over 35 years, working exclusively in Florida.  Although she has worked for one of the largest law firms in Orlando, she prefers to work in a smaller firm where her experience is more useful to the clients and her team.  She has been working with Richard West since 2010.  She has one son and two biological grandchildren and two step-grandchildren, who she enjoys spending time with.  Her family still resides in the Central Florida area.

LORI LEAL

Paralegal


I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Kentucky and have been a dedicated family law paralegal for over 23 years, working in various states. My husband's service in the Army provided us with the opportunity to travel and experience diverse cultures in different parts of the country. In 2015, we made Florida our new home.

With five wonderful children, family is at the core of everything I do. I am passionate about family law because it allows me to extend a helping hand to those in need and assist families through challenging times. In my leisure time, I cherish moments spent with my loved ones, indulging in a good book, and staying active outdoors.

My commitment to my work is unwavering, and I take great pride in using my experience and knowledge to advocate for our clients and offer them the necessary support during difficult situations. I am dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of those I work with and strive to find the best solutions tailored to their unique circumstances.
