Selma Vila
Legal Assistant/Paralegal

After graduating with a BA in Legal Studies from Davenport University in 2018, Selma interned at a family law and estate planning firm in Grand Rapids. During her time there, she was able to get first hand experience in the legal field where she learned the ins and outs of civil procedure. After her internship, she accepted a full-time role at a collections firm located in Grand Rapids in 2019. Specializing in garnishments for the state of Georgia, Selma was able to prepare over 750 lawsuits per month. Realizing collections was not a long-term career goal for her, Selma pursued a career at Henn Lesperance and joined the team in 2021.

When Selma is not in the office, you can find her either spending time with loved ones(cat included) or reading a good book. She also enjoys traveling, going to the gym, and binge watching reality TV shows.
