Taren Mitteer, Paralegal

Taren Mitteer, who was born in snowy, upstate New York in a small town named Allegany, serves as a paralegal at Smith Strong, PLC. 

Interestingly, Taren spent several years in Seattle, where she was awestruck at the natural beauty of the area. Having moved to Richmond in 2001, Taren worked in a management position at a small business prior to becoming a paralegal.  Two step children (ages 6 and 4) keep her busy, as well as visiting with two sisters (one of whom is her fraternal twin). and six local nieces and nephews. 

Her family has no idea how lucky they are--Taren loves to cook and clean, genuinely.  When she is not mopping her sparkling floors, we enjoy having her friendly demeanor and superb work ethic to assist in managing legal matters for our clients.
