Manatee County's largest city and county seat is Bradenton. Manatee County is named for the Florida manatee a slow moving water mammal which is a distant relative of the elephant and once called a "sea cow". Manatees are found in freshwater rivers, in estuaries, and in the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Florida manatees may live to be more than 28 years old in the wild, and one captive manatee, "Snooty", has lived for over 60 years
I'm not done yet! At the age of 72, I've decided to re-create a business from my youth, some 50 years ago. An empty storefront in a bustling shopping center, just 3 minutes from where I live, spoke to me. Seeing it took me back to the early 1970's when the original "Storefront Secretary" was created. Back then, I typed papers for my classmates and friends on one of those electric typewriters with those funny little balls with interchangeable fonts. From then until now, I've had a career as a National Board Certified Teacher, teaching primarily government and law in Sarasota County, have been a legal secretary, paralegal, legal researcher, and a community volunteer (Junior League member since 1977), most recently, a Guardian ad Litem -- once again being drawn to the law and to the courts. I attended University of Louisville School of Law for one year but dropped out after that first year as my daughters were 1 and 3 at the time. When it came to studying or taking them to the park, guess which choice won? Little wonder, however, that I've combined my legal experiences and my typing expertise to offer services as a legal document preparer. Following are "some" of the services I offer:
I have a beautiful "Wedding Wall"
where I can officiate at your special occasion and a little table and
chairs where visiting children can color while they wait for their
caregivers to finish meeting with me. As a new business, I am hosting
monthly FREE "Second Saturday Seminars" on a host of topics
so people can get to know me, my business and better understand the
law I'm teaching them. Located at 4949 E. State Road 64, Bradenton,
FL 34208, I'm just about two miles west of I-75. You may reach me by
phone: 941-405-4067 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org or
check out my webpage: storefrontsecretary.com (admittedly, a work
in progress). My turn-around time is less than 5 business days and
my prices are middle-of-the-road. I'm open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm
and open Sundays, Mondays and evenings, by appointment.
I sincerely look forward to meeting you and to preparing the legal documents you need at this time in your life. Even if you don't need anything right now, please stop in, say hi, look around, and pick up a business card. I'm not going anywhere soon!
Offering economical alternatives to expensive attorneys' fees. As a Legal Document Preparer, I am offering services including divorce; paternity; child support; parenting plans; modifications; name changes; wills; preparation of deeds, evictions; advanced directives; living wills; business formation (corporations and LLC’s); as well as guardianships.
I am not an attorney and cannot give you legal advice. If you need an attorney, or if, after communicating with you, it is determined that you need the advice of a attorney, I can refer you.
I have spent the majority of my adult life in the legal field and am currently employed by a local attorney. I hold designations as a Registered Paralegal through the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, of which I am an active member in good standing; and am a member in good standing with the Tampa Bay Paralegal Association. I also hold the designation as a Florida Registered Paralegal, which provides me with an affiliated member relationship with the Florida Bar.
It is through my long tenure as a family law paralegal and in my lesser experience in nursing home litigation that I became increasingly aware of the need for quality, competent guardianship services in the State of Florida and also hold the designation of National Certified Guardian. My specialty certifications acquired in my paralegal training as well as my significant emphasis in my paralegal career on marshaling of assets in complex dissolution of marriage actions entitles me to claim an enhanced knowledge and ability in the area of Guardian of the Property.
Also offering freelance paralegal services, with significant emphasis on discovery assistance, to local attorneys. Serving Manatee County and surrounding areas.
