Cathy A. Derrig
Cathy has served in many capacities over the course of her 38 years at CCK. She has mastered each area in which she has served, and built, trained, and lead teams throughout CCK. She currently serves as the Bequest Administration Manager, overseeing the administration and systems of CCK’s Bequest Management practice.
Prior to her role as the Bequest Administration Manager, Cathy oversaw the operation of almost every non-legal aspect of the firm during her long tenure as CCK’s Office Manager. Her vast knowledge of all things CCK brings an unmatched level of understanding and insight to all projects with which she is involved. She oversees active and expert management of CCK’s Bequest Management caseload, ensuring prompt, systematic collection, documenting, and entry into our case management database, so that cases can be managed accurately and consistently in accordance with our non-profit clients’ protocols. Cathy also oversees the development of each client’s custom dashboard experience providing access to their bequest caseload, and the ability to run status reports and projections with nearly real-time precision.
Cathy received her Paralegal certification from Bentley University in 1991. In 2014, Cathy became a licensed VA Accredited Agent, qualifying her to represent our Nation’s veterans in appealing disability claim denials before the VA – a qualification that is not easily attained and was valuable in her earlier roles as paralegal, and office manager.
In her free time, Cathy enjoys gardening, boating, and exercising.
