Walking into a business can be intimidating at times, especially if you’ve never been there before. Thankfully, when you walk into Smolen Law you will be greeted by a smiling, friendly face, and her name is Megan Dalton. This week our interview is focused on her.

I have been employed with Smolen Law since September 2019, and am their Legal Receptionist.
Did you ever think you’d be working for a law firm, and is it what you expected it to be?
No, at first I was intimidated. Everything was foreign, but I was blessed. Everyone at Smolen Law is kind and showed me the correct way things operate.

I was employed in the medical field as a Phlebotomist, IV Specialist, and Lab Technician.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is getting to know our clients and seeing the difference we make in their lives.
How do you like to spend your time outside of the office?

If you could adopt any animal on the planet, what would it be and why?
I would adopt a sloth. I find sloths absolutely adorable. I admire how committed they are to laziness and their carefree demeanor.
*Sloths and I are polar opposite!
If you could choose one person (dead or alive) that has influenced your life, who would it be and why?
My Great Grandma Rose. She played a huge part in my raising, and always have the best advice. She would always quote Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, “When Faith is Triumphant.” She even went as far as typing it on an index card; to this day it hangs on my fridge.
As a child, what was the most memorable toy you played with?
My most memorable toy as a child was a karaoke machine. I got one for Christmas, and would sing for hours. Which is how I learned that I cannot carry a tune to save my life!
