Office Manager & Receptionist
Marcia Perkins joined the firm in 1983 and serves as Office Manager and Receptionist. As office manager, she prepares client billing for the attorneys, manages the firm's bank accounts, prepares payroll, pays all of the firm’s bills, and sets up files for new clients. Her responsibilities as receptionist include answering the phone, greeting clients and keeping the reception area running smoothly.
Marcia loves working at Watson McKinney because it means being a part of a family – at least, that is how everyone is made to feel. Working for the legal profession always brings to mind what Buck Watson used to tell them: "When someone walks through our doors, he or she needs help in some way, and we are here to help them. What profession can say more than that!"
Theresa Willits joined the firm in 1999 and serves as Paralegal to attorneys Rebekah McKinney and Phil DeFatta. Her responsibilities include client intake and scheduling, file management, pleading preparation, reviewing and summarizing medical records, managing subrogation and assisting with all phases of litigation.
Theresa enjoys working for Watson McKinney because the lawyers are dedicated to their clients and treat everyone with professionalism, honesty and respect, no matter how great or small their matter is.
