Support Team Staff

Our Professional Support Team Staff Has Your Back!

Our law firm’s highly professional Support Team Staff will play an integral role of the success of your legal case. When you hire our firm, you can rely on the Support Team Staff to help you keep apprised of:

  • The overall status of your case;
  • All of your upcoming court dates and required court appearances;
  • Any changes in your case, such as rulings made on traffic infractions;
  • The status of discovery and evidence available for review in your case; and
  • Other general knowledge of and information about the facts of your case.

Team members also assist clients in scheduling alcohol, drug, medical, mental health, or domestic violence evaluations when called for in a criminal or family law case.

Occasionally, Support Team Staff members may attend court with the law office attorneys, and some team members have assisted with jury selection and presentation of evidence at litigated civil and criminal trials.

To reach any member of our staff, please call (360) 685-4221.

Meet the Support Team Members.

At Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone an exceptional group of experienced, friendly, and helpful Support Team Staff stands ready to assist you.  Each member of the team can be individually contacted for help by telephone or via e-mail during business hours. We are proud to introduce them:

Jarrett Galante

Jarrett Galante joined the Lustick Support Team Staff in July 2017 and brings 15+ years of diverse paralegal experience with him to our law firm. Jarrett grew up in California, graduated from San Marin High School and studied theater while attending Napa Valley College.

Before joining Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone, Jarrett honed his paralegal skills in the competitive Los Angeles area. While living in the city, he worked for an entertainment law firm representing musicians like Iggy Pop and Kanye West for licensing issues. Eventually, he joined an LA family law firm where he helped attorneys handle domestic-related cases.

Since moving to Bellingham, Jarrett has involved himself in the city’s theater scene. When he’s not helping our clients through the legal process, Jarrett takes part in local stage productions. He recently appeared in The Bellingham Theater Guild’s production of ‘The Mousetrap’ and is a member of the Upfront Theater’s improvisation group Satellite Ensemble.

Elina Dillard

Elina Dillard joined the Lustick Support Team Staff in July 2017. She brings valuable insights to our law firm thanks to her time at the Bellingham Public Defender’s Office and her work as a local bail bonds agent.

Elina has spent her whole life surrounded by the legal profession. Her mother was a Russian attorney and now a practicing private investigator. The family background, and her desire to help those in need, encouraged her to also pursue an education in law. In 2018, she will graduate from Whatcom Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies.

When she’s not helping our clients through the legal process, Elina is out hiking the Pacific Northwest trails, volunteering at her church or reading books on criminal justice.
