Ms. Dunbar has been with the firm since February of 2018 and has recently been promoted to Director of Therapeutic Services here at RTS Law Group.
Many claimed that because Callie came into the Firm from the prestigious Dunbar family, she was given unfairly high expectations compared past associates joining the Therapeutic Services Department. Nevertheless, Callie's paws hit the ground running. Her burst of high energy and contagious positive attitude immediately translated into record-breaking levels of employee morale.
In a perfect world, the story ends here with Callie barking her way up the chain of command. Unfortunately, Callie's journey was a long one, and far from easy.
In late 2018, Callie was issued a written warning for excessive napping. She politely and correctly pointed out the UNC (Unlimited Nap Clause) in her employment contract and the Firm issued a written apology.
However, before the ink on her apology letter was even dry, Callie was framed, becoming the victim of a ruse that was concocted by a couple of mischievous coworkers. Upon making her morning rounds, Callie moseyed into the kitchen and encountered two (2) unnamed members of the Litigation Team eating another employee's birthday cake prior to the party that was scheduled later that afternoon. Acting quickly, before Callie fully comprehended what she was witnessing, one of them smeared blue icing on Callie's nose while the other snapped a quick picture as they bumped Callie out of the way and went back to their offices.
Moments before the party, this picture was anonymously emailed to the Firm's HR Hotline which set up Callie as the "fall dog" for the cake controversy. The evidence seemed substantial. Not only was the excessive nap controversy fresh on everyone's mind, but the look of shock on Callie's face was confused for one of guilt. Without a hearing, Callie was put on Probation and demoted to the Mail Room.
For the first month after the demotion, Callie kept to herself. Employee morale plummeted and projections for 2019 were not looking favorable. Attorney Ryan T. Smith scheduled a meeting with Callie and her interpreter to discuss a corrective-action plan. Employees started to notice that this meeting lasted for hours. Halfway through, Mr. Smith paged for his law partner, Attorney David C. Driscoll, to join the meeting. This started a rumor mill of epic proportions around the office.
Everyone came to the same conclusion that it would be Callie's last day. Colleagues were eyeing her treat bowl and started arguing who should have first right of refusal to take over her office and luxury memory foam office bed.
A couple days later, just as the rumor mill reached full throttle, the two (2) unnamed troublemakers on the Litigation Team were escorted out of the building by Firm Security. The Partners have declined issuing public statements citing the matter's confidential nature. However, after facing some collective peer pressure during the Firm's Holiday Party in 2019, Callie leaked a few details.
Allegedly, Callie was finally given an opportunity to tell her story. Sensing that Callie should be represented prior to possibly incriminating herself, Mr. Driscoll offered to take on Callie's case. Mr. Driscoll hacked into the mainframe to obtain the IP address of the device used to send the anonymous icing picture. Based on lack of counsel and an obvious language barrier, Mr. Driscoll also filed an internal Motion for Appropriate Relief which led to both guilty individuals offering full confessions. With 'trustworthiness' being one of the Firm's stated core values, both individuals were released from their affiliation with RTS Law Group.
Ms. Dunbar's promotion to Director of Therapeutic Services has revived the entire work environment. She's leading the Firm's Physical and Mental Health Initiative by encouraging walks and runs around Freedom Park and the Dilworth area during work hours. She's currently available upon request for meditation and yoga sessions. When not running around the building, Callie uses her special powers to take therapeutic naps next to others which is believed to reduce the person's level of stress through osmosis. As the drafter of this bio, I can attest that her powers are real.
During her personal time, she spends time with her parents Johnny and Jenna Dunbar, plays with her favorite ball, chews random sticks, and jumps into any swimming pools she can find.
