Julie Colby

Paralegal handling Longshore, Asbestos exposure claims and the fiduciary department

Julie has over thirty-five years of legal experience assisting hundreds of injured Maine workers to ensure they receive the disability benefit they deserve. Julie prepares and files claims for clients with the Longshore Administration and works with clients as their cases weave their way through the process. She is also registered with all of the asbestos trusts, assisting Suzanne in proving our client’s entitlement to benefits for injured clients and their family members. Most recently, she has focused on the work most valued by her – assisting Longshore clients seeking lifetime benefits or benefits for widows due to workplace exposure to asbestos and other hazardous materials. In addition, Julie works in our bonded fiduciary department assisting elderly and disabled Veteran clients with their finances, along with filing Veteran accountings annually with the Veteran’s Administration and Maine Probate Courts. 

Julie was born and raised in Maine, and is most proud of her daughter who obtained her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education.  She enjoys providing a loving home for rescue cats, gardening, nature photography and spending time with family and friends.  Her quick wit and sense of humor keeps the office in good spirits.
