Richard Sybrandy’s primary legal assistant is Stacy Youngquist. She has a paralegal degree from Skagit Valley College and has worked for Mr. Sybrandy since 1999. Originally from Wisconsin, Ms. Youngquist is a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and that is all you need to know about her (other than the fact that she is the best paralegal/legal assistant in the entire world).
