Deanna N. Cerda

Legal Administrator

Deanna began in the legal profession in 2002 as a Legal Assistant for the civil litigation firm, then known as Beck & Jenkins. There, she developed her law practice management skills for over 12 years.

Hired as one of HLG’s first employees, Deanna quickly became our Legal Administrator as she helped manage our rapid early growth. She works closely with HLG’s Executive Director toward handling day-to-day operations, human resources, finances and technology. As an active and enthusiastic member of the Association of Legal Administrators, Deanna continues to deepen her legal education, experience and knowledge.

When Deanna is not working, she enjoys down time with friends and family, weekends at the beach and spontaneous adventures with her daughter.
