Courtney Duncan

Director of Operations

Courtney is a city girl who came to the country.  She wound up in the legal world on a whim and decided to stick around. When she’s not working she can be found with her fur baby, Sophie or on adventures with family and friends. 

She’s a paralegal to Matthew McGlathery, but she also takes on the role of “ride or die.” She brings the red and blue to the table to create team white light!
