Luanne Brinkman started her career at Herrling Clark Law Firm in 1989. She is proud to be Irish, graduating from Freedom High School and calling Freedom home today. When Lu started at the firm, she worked as a typist, supporting the practices of both Attorney Roger Clark and Kevin Lonergan. In 1990, she took on a role that she would put her heart and soul in to for the next almost thirty years: Lu moved to the front of the firm to serve as our receptionist, greeting all of our clients, visiting attorneys, and other guests.
Somehow Lu manages all of her front-line duties and also supports a variety of practices by typing dictation and helping with any odd project around the firm that needs to be completed. If you have had the privilege of talking to Lu or being greeted by her welcoming smile when you walk through the doors of our firm, you will know that she is one of the most positive, caring individuals around. Although Lu loves to type, she also loves to talk with people and enjoys getting to know all of our clients and the judges, attorneys, mediators, and guests who come and go every day in the course of our business. Lu’s passion shines through every interaction she has, and we could not be more grateful to have her on our team.
When Lu has downtime and is not at the firm, she loves to spend time with her husband and their family. Together, Lu and her husband have five children and thirteen grandchildren! Lu loves the holidays at their house, because with such a large family, holidays in her words “are just awesome.”
