Portner & Shure Employee Spotlight: February 2015Author: Portner & Shure
Bartola Flores has worked at Portner & Shure for approximately three years as a Spanish translator and legal assistant. More than ten years ago, she came to the United States from El Salvador and did not speak any English. She attended community college and studied business administration while learning English. The family is something that is very important to Bartola. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with he8-year-old son, Diego. She also stays busy by playing video games with Diego and taking him to soccer and swimming.
Just recently, she began working with Portner & Shure’s Spanish social media and online marketing departments, in addition to her normal work on various personal injury claims. She is now transitioning from a legal assistant to our Spanish Marketing Coordinator. She maintains our auto accident, criminal, and DUI Spanish blogs. In addition, she produces and edits YouTube videos and tweets on the firm’s Spanish Twitter account. While you will never see Bartola in any of the videos, just know that she is involved in every video Portner & Shure posts to its YouTube channel. She will certainly have her hands full with these new roles, but she says that she enjoys everything she takes on at Portner & Shure. As a result of her hard work, Portner & Shure is currently on the first page of any internet search for a Spanish-speaking accident lawyer in Maryland or Virginia.
