The Directors of Barnes Wendling would like to extend our best wishes to Cheryl Dvorak who is retiring on September 30, 2016. Cheryl has been the receptionist in our Cleveland office for more than 30 years. She will be greatly missed by all her colleagues. Whether she is boasting about our firm to her friends on the bus or recruiting new talent, Cheryl has been an invaluable member of our team.

Cheryl’s warm voice and welcoming personality are always present. Her ability to recognize voices and positive attitude towards everyone has been her trademark. She takes great pride in her responsibilities and has trained receptionists in our other offices. We’ve even had clients request that she train their assistants.

She is often considered the backbone of our client service because of her dedication to quickly connecting clients with a service provider or getting answers to their questions. The entire team has benefited from her willingness to help out with whatever is needed. All of Cheryl’s qualities have made her one of the most appreciated and well-loved team members by colleagues and clients alike; she is most-frequently acclaimed by clients in our satisfaction surveys.

Cheryl’s leaving marks the end of an era for Barnes Wendling as she is the longest tenured non-director employee to work for the firm in its 70 years of existence. We all extend our best wishes to Cheryl as she begins a long and much-deserved retirement.

Cheryl will be greatly missed!
