Anita Pasillas is a true native Californian — born and raised not too far from where she works today at Rapid Legal. She has three wonderful children Jonathan, Marissa and Brittany, along with a grandson, Isaiah. Guarding the house is their dog, Lulu. Anita says, “What Lulu lacks in size and ferocity, she makes up for with cleverness and a loud bark.”
In her spare time, Anita loves to garden, hike, play the guitar and cook. Should she ever decide to leave the legal business, she’s been been told she could make a fortune selling her chicken tacos!
Anita started in the legal industry with Rapid Legal in 2010 with just enough knowledge to get her foot in the door. She began managing their nationwide service of process orders back when they were printed and hand-endorsed. After a few years, Anita felt that she needed more in-depth knowledge so she pursued her Paralegal degree. This helped provide an understanding of not only the documents, but the different case types, she would be dealing with on a daily basis. She enjoys having opportunities every day to help someone new and meet people.
Looking to be more challenged and involved in the industry, Anita decided to attend a CALSPro board meeting. After attending many CALSPro board meetings and seeing what a difference the association and all the dedicated individuals had made to the industry, she decided to accept the nomination to the Board and run.
Although at first, Anita felt somewhat intimidated by all the knowledge and experience on the CALSPro board, she still felt it was important to volunteer and help where needed and is very glad of that decision. Anita says,
“Even though the part I currently play as a board member is small, it has provided me the opportunity to meet new people and help the industry I am proud to be a part of.”
