Catherine “Cat” McCulle started at Lindy Korn PLLC as a legal assistant. She is now an associate there and a new member of the Erie County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Committee Executive Council. This fall she will become a board member of the Evans Senior Center.
McCulle grew up in Angola, resides in Derby and is a labour and employment attorney specialising in employment discrimination, wage and hour matters and class-action lawsuits.
To help with time-management, she uses Excel spreadsheets with color-coded to-do lists.
When not in the office, she enjoys cooking, fishing, playing ice hockey and golf, going to the beach and spending time with her dog.
What bit of advice do you wish you had known before entering the workforce? Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Make friends. You need to find light where you can.
Do you prefer working from home, in the office or somewhere else? It depends on the task but I love having the flexibility to do work from home or in the office. Overall, I prefer being home so I can work alongside my beloved dog.
Where do you see yourself in your career in 10 years? Honestly, I have no idea. I just want to be doing something I love and (hopefully) doing so successfully and I will be content.
What is your ideal type of workplace? Diverse, with interesting people. Working with people who have different opinions or outlooks on life and on legal matters is incredibly beneficial for growth and successful collaboration.
