Rubric: An Established Tradition, Custom, or Rule

Rubric might not be what you’d call a “traditional” law firm. We hold partner meetings on long runs training for a marathon. We don’t try to speak in Latin. Our office equipment includes a pizza oven. We’ll admit when we don’t know an answer (and then go find it).

But there is one tradition we hold to: Every lawyer should be dedicated to serving and seeking justice for the people who entrust their livelihoods and families to that lawyer’s skill, experience and judgment.

Carolyn Chambers

Carolyn joined Rubric Legal in 2012 as a paralegal. After earning her Bachelor of Arts in English from Shippensburg University, she earned her paralegal Certification from Villanova University. She has nearly 20 years of legal experience, including work in civil litigation, insurance law, business law, family law and copyright and trademark infringement.

“My job as a paralegal is to make things easier for both our lawyers and our clients, and I take great pride in it. It’s satisfying when we achieve a positive outcome for a client, and to know that I played some part in that outcome. A successful law practice requires a team effort, and I have been a proud member of the team here at Rubric since 2012.”
