Our Legal Specializations

Your Virtual Advocate has two broad, related areas that is our focus.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION (Worldwide)

Your most precious asset is your creativity. Because of that, it’s essential your creativity is protected at all costs.

We assist our clients in protecting their businesses, brands, creative assets and other intellectual property.

The bottom line — we protect your bottom line.

U.S. VISAS & IMMIGRATION FOR CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS (Worldwide)

One of our greatest passions is to help talented foreign nationals obtain O-visas, P-visas, EB-1 and EB-2 national-interest waiver green cards.

We also help these individuals protect their U.S.-based businesses, brands and creative work.

WHAT WE OFFER OUR CLIENTS

Personalized Service — We will never ghost you; we believe clients need to be actively involved in their cases. We believe integrity and character matter.

No Surprise Billing — We offer flat fees for most services. You’ll be aware of any fees and will offered options before you’re charged. Legal fees shouldn’t bust your budget.

Real-World Legal Education —  Educating our clients about how the legal system can safeguard your business or creative assets and protect your bottom line is an important part of our service. Risk prevention is key. The key to prevention is education and knowledge you can implement into your business model, trainings or other aspects where it matters most.

If this sounds like you, let's find out if we fit! We'd love to see how we can work together.

What Clients are Saying about Your Virtual Advocate

"It is rare nowadays to find an expert that can specify the distinction between various art and design disciplines like Julie, as specialized as the art and design discipline has become. Her vast knowledge of the law and entertainment field, as well as artists and designers makes it a very enjoyable experience collaborating with her.  Julie's past experience and extensive network in the entertainment field give her comprehensive knowledge and the latest must-knows that I could not have been aware of myself."

Ellody, Experiential Designer - EB-2/National Interest Waiver Green Card

"Julie is like meeting a real-life search engine withan advanced function that will automatically type in the keywords for you.  This is so meaningful from a practical standpoint for emerging international artists just starting out. I feel deeply happy to have Julie's guidance to clarify the best path to go down with themost potential to achieve my goal of getting a green card."

We are so grateful that thanks to her guidance and support we are not only enjoying our marriage but hopeful that we will have a stable place to call home. We certainly assure you that she will not only put her professional skills at work to help you but also a loving and encouraging heart to guide you to the best decision and way to deal with your case. Thank you Julie and May God bless you!!!"
