Meet Beth Wickersham Burrus, a remarkable individual with a passion for the law and a heart for the Pacific Northwest. As LKLG's Senior Litigation Paralegal, she not only excels in her primary role but also takes on the responsibilities of Firm Administrator and Focus Group Facilitator, demonstrating her versatility and commitment to excellence.
Beth's legal journey traces back to her father's chambers, the Honorable Richard B. Wickersham, an esteemed Appellate Court Jurist of the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Growing up in an environment steeped in law, Beth seamlessly navigates the details of case management.
Beth’s academic journey began with a marketing major from Penn State University. However, her passion for the legal realm led her to pursue paralegal studies, which she successfully completed in 1989. Beth's dedication to continuous growth is evident through her active participation in various professional affiliations, including The American Bar Association, Washington State Association for Justice, Washington State Paralegal Association, National Notary Association, and the National Federation of Paralegal Associations.
Beth is an inspiration through her selfless dedication to making a positive impact in the lives of others. Engaging with the non-profit Foster Champs of Washington, she lends her support to foster children, creating a brighter future for them. Her compassionate nature extends to her role as a Board member of the cancer non-profit, Valley Girls & Guys. Additionally, Beth serves as a chemo buddy at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, a contributor to the Moore Project, which provides chemo care packages, and volunteer for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
An emerging artist, Beth channels her creativity to inspire and uplift others. Her dedication to family is evident as she cherishes her four incredible children, two amazing bonus daughters, and nine grandchildren, and a Golden Retriever named Willow.
Amidst her busy schedule, Beth finds joy and solace in the picturesque landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. She delights in beachcombing, fishing, clamming, and crabbing, embracing the natural wonders that surround her. Living on the shores of the Puget Sound with her husband, Craig, who recently retired after 30 years of service with South King Fire & Rescue, they relish the beauty of the region.
