Celeste R. Barrett

Paralegal Email

Celeste grew up, and raised her own family, in Central New York. She began her legal career in 2006, when she joined her husband’s family law firm. She was the Paralegal, Legal Assistant and Office Manager for the firm for over 14 years.

Prior to that, Celeste received a degree in accounting, and spent several years working in accounting and auditing. This gives her a unique perspective and window into the financial aspects of our family law cases.

Celeste joined Ed in January 2021 and assists Ed in a variety of tasks. She is responsible for the production of discovery documents (such as financial affidavit, responses to requests for production, and answers to interrogatories) and parenting plans. She calculates child support guidelines, and assists Ed with the preparation of hearings, trials, and mediations.

Celeste has 2 adult children. Her son, David, continues to reside in Central New York and is a musician and entrepreneur. Her daughter, Taylor, resides with her while attending Stetson University College of Law. Taylor’s 2 beautiful Pit Bulls (Celeste’s Grand pups) also reside with them, along with a Maine Coon cat. When she is not chasing, or playing with, the energetic pups, Celeste enjoys time outdoors and at the beach.
