JULIE SHAVALIER, ESQ.

Founding Attorney

Hello and welcome! I’m Julie Shavalier, Founding Attorney of Shavalier Law, an Internet-based law practice designed to support entrepreneurs and businesses.

In 2012, after suffering from a myriad of stress-related health setbacks, I stepped away from my work in Corporate Litigation Support relating to Asset-Backed Securities in pursuit of a career more closely related to my lifelong passion for service, education and empowerment. I soon embarked on a number of entrepreneurial ventures in the field of Holistic Health & Wellness (as my increase in awareness and knowledge of these issues were instrumental to my improved health and changed career trajectory).

Through these ventures, my business partners and I observed a significant lack of affordable and accessible options for legal services, as well as a desire for more streamlined and modern representation.

I began to be approached by a growing number of women in the Holistic Health & Wellness community seeking legal advice on their entrepreneurial endeavors (authors, educators, holistic health practitioners and brick & mortar holistic health practices) and as a result, developed a thriving side legal practice. I felt impactful and totally invigorated by helping other women actualize their dreams on their own terms. I realized that the nature of this legal work was very much of service, educational and thoroughly empowering. Shavalier Law was soon after established.

Julie is an attorney in the states of New York and Florida and an active member of the Business Law Section of the New York State Bar Association. She was honored to have been recognized at the 2013 Brooklyn State of the Borough Address for her pro bono efforts on behalf of the victims of Hurricane Sandy and the Brooklyn Bar Association's Volunteer Lawyer Project. Julie resides in Brooklyn with her husband and two children.
