Meet the Team

Eileen DeSimone, Case Manager

I have been assisting clients, new and recurring, for many years. I take pride that I can give them the help and support they need to work through a bad situation. I have compassion for each individual and their problems are mine until we can bring their case to closure.

In my spare time, I enjoy a good novel or film, cooking, gardening and motorcycle riding. With the majority of my family residing in Pennsylvania, my co-workers have become my second family. I enjoy using my vacation time to go spend quality time and vacation with my family.

Gary L. Swinkey, Investigator  

Drawing on my investigative experience as a retired FBI Agent I am able to provide our clients with the best possible litigation support for their cases.

My hobbies include collecting classic Mercedes Benz cars, playing golf, and sporting clays.

Laura Gibbins, Finance Manager  

My favorite part of my job is being part of a good team and feeling joy in making a daily contribution.  Outside of the office, I love reading and traveling to unknown towns and investigating food, culture and history.

Marie Kanipe, Investigator/Legal Assistant  

I love investigating accidents. I ensure we have done all we can do to provide that extra reassurance to our clients. I have the compassion and drive it takes to give the hometown courtesy to each person we aid.

My favorite activity is spending time with my grandchildren. Watching them laugh and play is my enjoyment. I do love the outdoors, hiking, riding bicycles, camping and the beach. I also love to sew and give back to the community. I recently made the curtains for a local elementary school’s cafeteria.

Martina Gutierrez, Receptionist  

My favorite part of my job is greeting people. I like to make people feel welcome and comfortable.

My leisure time consists of reading, listening to music, dance lessons, hiking and weight training. I’m an outdoor enthusiast for outdoor activities. I like to engage in group-oriented outings that provide an opportunity to meet people and experience the outdoors.

Tracey P. Teno, Paralegal  

I love seeing the legal process unfold and making sure people like myself are not treated unfairly by insurance companies.

I enjoy spending time with my family. I love watching and supporting my three children in all of their sporting events. I also enjoy reading and going to the movies.

Jessalyn Stock, Legal Assistant

I enjoy watching as a case comes together as I add the medical records and bill. More than anything I love knowing that we are helping people every day.

During my free time I love boating, beaching, fishing, and getting to experiencing new things and places.

Mandy Carrigan, Paralegal

I have been a paralegal for over 15 years handling various types of law including: personal injury, medical malpractice, slip and fall injuries and workers’ compensation claims. I am a native of South Carolina and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Coastal Carolina University. I love the type of work I do because I get to be a part of helping injured people get the compensation they deserve.

I have two daughters that keep me pretty busy. In my free time, I enjoy movies, cooking and motorcycle riding.

Cody Cloer, Offsite Manager

I enjoy attending all the biker events and festivals to show what our firm has to offer to help people in their time of need.

In my Spare time I enjoy the outdoors, Hunting, Fishing, Riding and helping my family and friends.

Stacey Silver, Paralegal

Helping people achieve the best possible outcome, after they have gone through a negative experience, is what I like most about my job. Assisting someone throughout the legal process, giving them guidance, and walking them through all of the stages of a personal injury case with care, empathy and sensitivity is always my top goal.

My interests outside of the legal field include spending time with my family; camping, hiking, and experiencing new places and things through travel.

Cynthia Rose, Legal Assistant

Over the past decade, I’ve worked as a transcriptionist, then moved on to fulfilling medical record requests by scanning paper charts for conversion to electronic media. Most recently, I had the wonderful experience of working in the legal release of information department for a major healthcare medical provider here in North Carolina. All of this gave me a strong EHR and HIPAA compliance background as records assistant here at the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, which in my honest opinion is one of the best places I’ve ever worked! I feel very blessed and proud to be working with such a strong professional team.

Me and my husband enjoy organic gardening, camping and spending time with our 5 daughters and 11 grandchildren.
