Vivian Trinidad

Administrative Assistant

Vivian Trinidad comes to us as a part-time administrative assistant, but has almost twenty years of experience in the legal field. She began her career as a legal secretary at various law firms in Washington, D.C., had a brief stint in law school and eventually moved to Miami, Florida. There, she honed her skills as an Intellectual Property (“IP”) paralegal for Perry Ellis International and eventually at Greenberg Traurig, LLP. She and her husband Feventually moved back to Maryland to be closer to family and most importantly, to raise their only son. She worked briefly as an IP paralegal and eventually the IP practice coordinator at DLA Piper, LLP in Washington, D.C.

Vivian left the IP world to obtain a more work-life balance. Growing up with her grandparents living clear across the other side of the world, Vivian grew a natural affinity towards the elderly, she joined Felinton Elder Law and Estate Planning Centers where she is the Medicaid Liason and provides administrative assistance to the Client Concierge. For Vivian, it is an honor to serve the senior community and is proud to know that she is being of service to them and their loved ones.

Comfort Care Provider Extraordinaire

Precious is from a southern shelter and retains her southern charm when assisting our families with those challenging times.

She always welcomes them with a lick and her willing head to pat. She truly appreciates when some of our visitors bring her treats.

She brings a welcome smile to the office.
