Molly Steiner started working for Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C. as a paralegal intern in 2017 while attending Fox Valley Technical College. After earning an associate degree in paralegal studies, she began working as a paralegal to Attorney Emily Lonergan. Once Ms. Lonergan became a judge in Outagamie County, Molly took on the role of family law paralegal to Attorney Angela Boelter.
While still in high school Molly worked several jobs, including babysitting, working on a vegetable farm and doing clerical work at an auto repair shop. During college, she worked at the Waupaca Foundry. But it was Judge Judy who led her to a career in the legal field. “Coming home from school when I was little I would usually be able to watch her show at 4:30 p.m. and she inspired me to be a strong woman working in the legal industry.”
When not working, Molly enjoys outdoor activities, such as working on the farm, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and working on projects with her dad and brother. Reading, working on art projects and watching sports are some of her favorite things to do at home. Molly is a doting aunt. Her face lights up so brightly when talking about her niece’s latest milestones or showing off photos.
Molly also enjoys participating in demolition derby competitions. She loves to come into the office and tell us about her derby wins – especially when she beats her brother!
