Yekaterina (Kate) Boltenkov is from Alapayevsk, Russia. In 1996 when she was 10 years old, her family moved to United States and settled in Washington State because of religious persecution. Kate is the seventh child in a family of eight and living in Russia was a very hard life. While in Russia, she couldn’t even have dreamed of entering law, but she had the desire to do something incredible with her life. It was in the United States that her dreams were to be realized and it was that desire that brought her to Colorado after graduating high school.
After high school, Kate started considering what she wanted to do. She considered a number of options and decided on the legal field because the justice system was interesting, so she entered Corinthian Institution Paralegal Program. Following graduation in April of 2008, Kate answered an ad posted by Pitler and Associates, P.C.
Kate interviewed at Pitler And Associates, P.C. but decided to take another position. On a phone call, Robert Pitler said, “When our paralegal left we did not know what we were going to do, but God sent you and you walked through the door.” Kate agreed and started her job as a paralegal. Kate loves being a paralegal and not a day goes by that she does not thank God for helping her make the decision to become a paralegal.
However, the job is not without is daily challenges and obstacles. At the end of the day, Kate is fulfilled with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
“Working side by side with Robert Pitler had taught me a great deal of sense of value and worth for our clients. He taught me how to honestly treat others with respect and put their interests before my own. I am happy to be part of Pitler and Associates team!”
Kate is a very outgoing person and loves to socialize. She feels fortunate to have friends and family. Kate loves to travel and visit her friends and family. Kate enjoys being by the ocean, camping, playing pool, bowling (best score 126) and most recently, hiking. For Kate, winning for the client is everything. She is the most passionate person you will meet about winning.
