GET TO KNOW OUR FOUNDER
“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” ~Albert Einstein~
Valarie founded TechnoTaries with three core components:
1) solve a problem; 2) have a product of value; and 3) be the best and most successful at performing services. Valarie’s management style and work ethic are attributes that have led to her successes. She is committed to maintaining exceptional client relations and effectively assisting with all virtual paralegal needs of TechnoTaries’ clients. “What started off as a dream and an idea has turned into an amazing business with useful services, and I could not be more thankful”, says Valarie.
Valarie’s legal career expands more than 30 years, working as an office manager, legal secretary and paralegal (sometimes all at once) with esteemed Los Angeles law firms. She has extensive experience and a vast knowledge of various areas of law, California courts and legal procedures. Her upbeat and positive personality, approachable persona, professionalism and stellar skills have all contributed to Valarie’s reputation in the legal community as being one of the BEST there is to work with.

Special Message from Valarie:
I am overwhelmed by the amount of positive support I continue to receive from friends, colleagues, clients and, of course, family. I greatly appreciate you all! There’s a saying, "do what you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life." What a blessing. Keep that positive energy flowing!
All the Best,
