Lori Helminger is a legal assistant who works under the direct supervision of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) attorneys Alyson M. Laderman and Michael J. LaPorte for Bloodworth Law, PLLC, in Orlando, Florida.
Lori has been a legal assistant since 2019 after having worked on the other side of PIP for insurance firms including Geico.
Lori decided to enter the legal field so that she could work for clients on the other side of the insurance table.
“I wanted to become a legal assistant to be able to get people the help that they deserve,” Lori said. “Here, we do all we can to get clients the best possible results.”
She handles PIP litigation intake, scheduling, and preparing demands in support of Alyson and Michael, and works together with other PIP paralegals to get work completed for clients in a timely manner.
Lori grew up in Wisconsin, but came to Florida to be near family, and has lived here since 2015. Lori likes walking her two Bloodhounds, Owen and Eli, and Jeremy, a Weimaraner. A big fan of all the Disney Theme Parks, Lori is often dining out at Disney or waiting in line for her favorite ride, the Rock ‘N Roller.
Lori loves animals and is a former Standardbred horse trainer, driver and racer. She volunteers helping to find homes for retired Standardbred horses after their racing careers have ended.
We help people to get what they deserve. A lot of times the insurance company doesn’t like to give people what they deserve. So, I want to make sure that, working together, fighting for what’s right, that we get it for them because I’ve worked on the other side.
Working on the claims side I know the fact finding and what the claims side is looking for as far as how they’re going to deny the claims.
On this side, I know what we need to send to them with the proper information to make sure we can get the clients the money that they should receive.
We all work together to get everything done for the clients and to get things out in a timely manner.
