Legal Assistant Sandra Beardsley

Sandra Beardsley is the legal assistant for all adoptions that are processed through the law firm. Sandie is an Ohio native. Her legal career began in Columbus, Ohio where she worked as a legal secretary in personal injury and family law. She relocated to Los Angeles, California where she worked for a large law firm as a litigation secretary in insurance recovery. After her law firm in California began doing pro bono work for The Alliance for Children’s Rights, Sandie spent the next eighteen years being the primary person responsible for seeing the adoptions through to finalization. Sandie retired from litigation and relocated to North Carolina with her son, Jim, but soon found that her heart was still in adoption law and joined the law firm in 2013. She is active in her church, loves following NASCAR and going to races all over the east coast, and loves spending time with her son and mischievous cat, Dennis. Sandie has a soft spot in her heart for each of the children that she assists in placing for adoption.
