Paralegal

About

Adelle is our OG paralegal.  She joined the firm when it was just Russell and Trey in a tiny office downtown with little more than a dream to create a regional law firm that fought for everday West Texans.  She serves as named partner Trey Keith’s personal paralegal.  In the legal profession, there are a 1000 moving parts, and she is constantly working behind the scenes, to make sure our clients are well represented and their voices are heard. 

Adelle knows a little something about West Texas Toughness.   As a single mom, Adelle has to be tough for her kids.   When she was younger, she worked two jobs and burned the midnight oil on a regular basis to provide for her family.   Although her children are now grown with families of their own, Adelle instilled in them the same work ethic she brings to Keith & Lorfing on a daily basis.  Adelle isn’t just another West Texas Tough paralegal, she’s got the West Texas roots to back it up.   She graduated from Sweetwater High School in 1989 and has called West Texas home ever since. She spent 11 years in the Midland/Odessa area, a short sting in Colorado City, and thankfully, found her to Abilene, where she spends countless hours advocating for the clients of Keith & Lorfing.

When not spending her nights and weekends at the law firm, Adelle can be found spending time with her five grandchildren, cooking her famous tamales, or dancing the night away.

Adelle is also bilingual and can speak Spanish.
