#MeetUsMonday: Michelle Ciliberto

Michelle Ciliberto is a Paralegal in Boylan Code’s Commercial Lending Department but has held roles within several other departments throughout the years!

Get to know Michelle a bit better:

How long have you worked at Boylan Code?
I started at what was then Boylan Brown in 1997 as a Litigation Paralegal, and then moved into Systems Administration in 1998. I moved to Massachusetts in 2001 but came back to Rochester and Boylan Brown in 2003, working in the Residential Lending Department. I moved back to Massachusetts (yes, again!) in 2006 before coming back to Rochester and Boylan Code in 2016 to take on my current role as a Paralegal in the Commercial Lending Department!

On any given day, what does your work routine look like? What do you do/focus on?
I do any of the following on any given day: communicate with clients, coordinate commercial closings, draft loan documents for commercial closings, attend commercial closings and review and organize due diligence materials. Basically, try to keep everyone organized and on track to close in a timely manner.

What part of your job do you enjoy the most?
I love the fact that I am constantly learning and growing in my job. I learn something new with every file I work on. I also work for great people that have entrusted me to challenge myself and learn new positions within the firm.Read More »
