Why I'm a WACDL Member - Catlin Gibson

" I cannot say enough about what WACDL has done for me and my career in criminal defense as a paralegal and an investigator."

As an associate member, I cannot say enough about what WACDL has done for me and my career in criminal defense as a paralegal and an investigator.

There simply are not enough places for paralegals and investigators to learn about criminal defense in order to keep current with laws, explore new topics, and network with like-minded professionals.  The local associations for paralegals and investigators are aimed primarily at private practice in civil law, and as such, the activities are not usually relevant to criminal law, especially not public defense.

Meeting people through WACDL is probably much of the reason I have been able to find such interesting work over the years.  Networking through WACDL does not feel like work, it feels like fun as we are always mixing in great social activities and it is very relaxed and natural.  One of the proudest moments in my career was being asked to chair the 2014 Support Staff CLE, knowing that I could be a part of helping others to discover the potential benefits available to WACDL associate members.

Catlin Gibson is a paralegal and investigator in Seattle.
