About

Like it says above … I am a Virtual Paralegal Extraordinaire and tenacious redhead from the GSOT. Just think of me as a 21st century freelance paralegal 🙂

In real life, I’m Pamela J. Starr (no relation to Belle, Bart, Brenda, Ringo or Ken. Okay, yes, Ken Starr* was my father) and I have been a paralegal all of my adult life. It all started a long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away) … in 2008, I started my own company, StarrParalegals, LLC. As a virtual paralegal I am able to fully utilize the Internet and e-access to accomplish tasks that are often performed from an office-bound desk. My services allow attorneys to maintain an image of professionalism, as well as their bottom line, by outsourcing paralegal duties.

A burnt-orange luvin’ Longhorn. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with BA in Political Science (and minors in Psych & and Classical Civ); attended Southwestern Paralegal Institute in Houston – one of the first ABA approved paralegal certification programs in the US – and graduated (what was referred to at the time) as a certified paralegal; earned my credentials as a Certified Bankruptcy Assistant (“CBA”); and, on May 20, 2012, received a Master of Science of Law (“J.S.M.”), cum laude, in Bankruptcy & Restructuring/E-commerce from Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

I’m an active member (and former two-term, Director of Membership) of the Georgia Association of Paralegals (“GAP”), the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (“NFPA”), the American Bar Association (“ABA”), the American Bankruptcy Institute (“ABI”), the Association of Bankruptcy Judicial Assistants (“ABJA”), the Commercial Law League of America (“CLLA”), and the National Association of Freelance Legal Professionals (“NAFLP”).

In my “copious” spare time (remember, I’m actually a full-time virtual paralegal), I’m pursuing my Master of Arts in Training and Development at Roosevelt University and I have launched my Career Mitigation© program at ‘Sessions with a Starr‘ – redefining career options in a 21st century economy and e-market.

*Not that Ken Starr… 🙂
