Virtually Yours Legal Support

I've been in the legal field for 17+ years and have worked remotely for about 4 years. This year I am fully engaged in the VA industry with my own business supporting solo attorneys, small business, and creative folk.

An experienced eBay seller, I enjoy web design, collect Native American pottery, love music, and am a cellist, guitarist, and songwriter, as well as a painter, gardener, and grandmother. My 2 rescue cats are near-constant companions.

Mission Statement

VYLS provides experienced, efficient, and environmentally sustainable services to the solo attorney, small business, artist, musician, or entrepreneur. My assistance helps you continue providing high quality [insert your services or products here] and frees you to focus on what you do best (instead of on managing your practice, business, or creative endeavors). I offer a wide variety of support services to meet your professional needs as well as your budget.

Specialty

My legal experience is in family and juvenile law, estate planning, criminal, corporate law, general business, some real estate, patent and trademark prosecution, and civil litigation.

I've created and managed websites since 2001, and have helped people with their businesses on eBay. I use WordPress and Dreamweaver.

By the way, I type 75 WPM and am an advanced user of MS Office Suite (especially Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint), and use Office 365 (2013) in my business.
