Your boss goes on maternity and leaves it up to you to cover for her absence in addition to your normal duties. For most people, this is a daunting task. For Shannon Francis, whose boss, Kerri Wilson, is known as the office workaholic, it’s like climbing Mount Everest. Yet her ability to capably take the place of her boss earned her The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III’s “Legal Eagle” award for the second quarter of 2013.
“It’s kind of a running joke that Kerri does the work of three people, but it’s not that far from the truth. So when she went out on maternity, we knew whomever was going to step in had to fill some large shoes. Shannon has really risen to the occasion and shown how capable she is. This will make us even stronger once Kerri returns,” said John C. Manoog III. “Shannon is most deserving of our “Legal Eagle” award for the second quarter.”
Francis began with The Law Offices of John C. Manoog III in August 2012 after graduating from Cape Cod Community College with an associate’s degree in psychology. She also earned her paralegal certification at CCCC.
“I’m very flattered by this honor. I knew it was going to be a challenge with Kerri on maternity and it has been. It’s nice to know that your efforts are recognized and appreciated,” said Francis.
Raised in Marion, Massachusetts, Francis currently resides in Mattapoisett and is an active participant in many ALS-related fundraising initiatives.
“There’s a direct correlation between the success of a law firm and how well everybody at the firm works with each other and is committed to the overall objective—a favorable result for the client. A big part of that is people stepping up when their colleagues are not available, be it for vacation, illness or maternity leave,” said Manoog. “Shannon’s efforts in Kerri’s absence is a great example of that and we are glad to have her on our team.”
