Phil Blende has been working with the partners of Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC since 2009 when all three of them were working at another law firm. As the Chief Operations Officer (COO) for Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC, Phil has been an integral part of building, shaping, and moving the firm forward in a number of key areas including, IT, Operations, Business Development, Human Resources Management, Marketing, Sales, and Logistics to name just a few. He is now focused on developing and honing our Marketing efforts so Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC can continue to grow as an organization. Phil’s dedication to the firm is only surpassed by his dedication to his wife Christina who also works for the firm.
In his off time (which there is little of), Phil likes to spend his time at home with his wife and their three cats Mongo, Tara, and Hayleigh. Phil enjoys golf, poker, and superheroes. He’s just a big geek at heart.
Ramona has been with the firm since June 2019. She started in our firm as one of our IT/Operations Assistants then became a Performance Improvement Specialist and is now part of our Marketing team as a Marketing Assistant. Her duties include extracting/sending daily marketing reports to the executive team, keeping up with the firm’s social media accounts, keeping up with updating the firm’s fee agreements, etc. Ramona is also responsible for creating, updating, and maintaining the process and procedure manuals for all departments in the firm. She is especially suited for this job because in a past professional capacity she edited an IT blog and because she also has a teaching background.
Some things you may not know about Ramona include the fact that she speaks four (yes…FOUR) languages including English, Spanish, German, and Romanian. Even though she was born and raised in the beautiful region of Transylvania, she is not a big fan of vampire movies. Ramona is a music lover and part time singer in her church choir. She also plays the violin. Ramona loves traveling and visiting new places, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. Ramona also loves to sew and knit when time permits.
We’re glad to have Ramona as part of our Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC family and look forward to her being with us long term.
