Julie Hawk is our receptionist/ intake specialist. She is the first point of contact with potential new clients and gladly talks with them about their questions and concerns. She also spends time talking with our current clients about questions or concerns they have and schedules time for them to meet with their paralegal or attorney when needed. Her responsibilities include answering phones, interviewing potential new clients and setting appointments for staff members for consultations or for clients to speak with their paralegal or attorney. Julie also receives important paperwork to organize consultations and from clients regarding their cases.
Julie earned an AS in Human Behavior from Mount San Jacinto College. Then she transferred to University of California, Riverside to finish a BS degree in biochemistry. After working in research and pharmaceutical development for several years, Julie changed her career path, earning her teaching credential from University of Redlands and started teaching middle school math and science then high school chemistry. After more than 15 years in the classroom, Julie wanted to spend more time focusing on her family, so she changed careers again after finishing a paralegal certificate at University of California, Riverside
Julie spends her free time outdoors with her family – gardening, hiking, camping and participating in Girl Scouts. She also enjoys board games, science fiction movies and relaxing around the house while reading or listening to music. Julie’s grandfather was a trumpet player so jazz is her favorite genre.
