Paralegal
Jill Burris

Paralegal

As a California native, Jill Burris has always had a strong tie to family and friendships. Jill moved to Michigan as a young teenager with her family and graduating from high school in Lapeer, Michigan. She then moved down to Jacksonville, North Carolina with friends. While working trying to save money for college, she met her husband Norman. After they married and started their family together, Jill quickly realized she wanted to help others. She then decided to go to college to become a paralegal. She graduated from Liberty University of Lynchburg, Virginia where she obtained her degree of Associate of Arts Accounting, Associate of Arts Paralegal Studies, and Bachelor of Science Paralegal Studies.

As a military spouse and mother of four children, she understands that life is too short to not follow your dreams. With three kids at home and a stepson in Florida, her priority has always been taking care of her family. Through her unselfish actions she has become an example for her kids to follow and to achieve your dreams. She is the first in her family to graduate college and to pursue her dreams of working with others that need help. In her free time, Jill likes to relax with her family at the beach.

Jill’s goal to become a paralegal was driven by her desire to help others after watching many families struggle over financial issues. She originally started out wanting to work as an accountant, but then quickly realized that her true calling was in the legal system. With her first degree of Associate of Accounting, she changed her major to become a paralegal to work with others to help them with bankruptcy actions.
