NALS Announces The 2018 NALS Award of Excellence Recipient

Thursday, November 29, 2018   (0 Comments)

Congratulations to the 2018 NALS Award of Excellence recipient, Kerie S. Trindle Byrne, PP, PLS-SC, CP from NALS of Phoenix!

Kerie has worked in the legal profession for 22-1/2 years and is currently employed as a family law paralegal with May, Potenza, Baran & Gillespie, P.C. 

When she heard Tara (Tara Hughes, 2018 NALS Board of Directors President) announce her name, she felt “stunned and immediately overcome with gratitude.”  Kerie burst into tears, both because of the joy she felt in receiving the award, but also because her friends that were seated with her at her table also burst into tears.  She said it was such a cacophony of emotions.  Kerie goes on to say that “both Jamie and Audrey are worthy nominees who have put so much of themselves into our association, as I have done.  We all do our best to ensure NALS remains sustainable, relevant, and that we have excellent leadership in place for the foreseeable future. The Award of Excellence really could have gone to any one of us, and I would have been happy to have it be either Audrey or Jamie.  As I said during my brief few words, NALS is my second family, and I am so grateful and humbled to receive the Award of Excellence from our association, which is so full of so many excellent people.”   

Kerie has had many professional achievements.  She obtained her Professional Legal Secretary (PLS) in 2010; Certified Paralegal (CP) in 2012; Professional Paralegal (PP) in 2016; and earned a Specialty Certificate in Family Law in 2018.  She is also a member of NALA and Legal Professionals Unite. 


Kerie was presented the award at the NALS 67th Annual Education + Networking Conference's Recognition Luncheon event in Phoenix, Arizona.
