Reading and writing has been a part of my life since I can remember (though in the very early days, I was being read to, of course). More recently, I've been reading and writing as part of my graduate program in Health Communication, I've started taking pictures as I travel, and made flyers for friends' businesses when asked. No project is too big or small--feel free to ask and I can take a look.

Julia graduated from the Center for Advanced Legal Studies in 1997 with an Associate's Degree as a paralegal. She has more than 21 years of experience in the field and has worked for various attorneys involved in many different aspects of law. She has completed internships at Porto, Trueheart, McStay, Darcy, and Kennedy, LLC. She worked primarily with Stephen Porto in the fields of family law and personal injury as well as with Joe Porto in the field of criminal law. Julia had the chance to go to law school but gave up that dream to focus on her family. She has been married for more than 20 years now to William. They have five children, namely Scott, Alysa, Caitlin, Emily, and Jake. Julia has also been a licensed insurance agent for several years given her vast knowledge in the area. Julia has always been fascinated by the law and how everything works. She has fought her own battles including going after her ex-husband for child support he owes back and securing a double judgment against him. In 2011, she got into a car accident that everyone thought was minor, but it’s actually changed her whole life. Health problems occurred after that, which resulted in her not being able to work full-time since 2013. In order to continue doing what she loves, Julia established this company to help attorneys in Texas who cannot afford full-time assistance. She wants to provide legal assistance to attorneys who cannot afford the costs of hiring full-time employees, while still being home-based. Her goal is to utilize her legal knowledge and expertise to assignments she is given as if they were her own cases. Rest assured that you and your clients are treated with the same professionalism that you expect from your own employees.

I paint portraits, extraterrestrials and angels. I am also very skilled at painting animals and landscapes. I can paint anything that is requested. I am also an author of two books about the universe and benevolent alien beings. The images I produce are very unique and extremely detailed. It would be my pleasure to produce imagery for someone that requires it.
