Sean Nix has been with Beers and Gordon P.A. as the Office Manager and Legal Assistant since its inception in the summer of 2009. She is responsible for much of the day to day operations at the firm, but she has long been that invaluable, daily interface with clients.
Sean earned a degree in economics from Duke University, then went on to work as a market research analyst/manager and retail buyer. After moving to Florida, she became a certified residential appraiser, which allowed her to apply her educational background to an expanding, professional resume. These combined experiences allow Sean to offer a strong understanding of economic issues, such as loss of earning capacity, involved in so many of our clients’ cases. They also give her a unique empathy because she can speak to clients without having to talk or think like a lawyer.
After growing up in the Atlanta area, Sean was married in 1991 and continued to live in Georgia until the family relocated to Oviedo in 2003 with their two sons. She has been active in the local Oviedo and Seminole communities in many outlets, including volunteering at all levels of primary and secondary education from elementary tthrough high school, non-profit recreational sports organizations including soccer, lacrosse, and football, and through her local church. She and her husband are now enjoying their time together as “empty nesters”.
Kelly joined the staff of Beers and Gordon P.A. in May 2016. She began her legal career over 17 years ago as an assistant with a boutique law firm. In 2007, Kelly joined a national law firm in Fort Lauderdale, then attended the National Paralegal College where she earned her degree in paralegal studies. Kelly now brings a wide range of experience to Beers and Gordon–everything from litigation, civil rights, appellate cases, construction defect, workers compensation, personal injury, transactional cases, and collections–but she also provides an in-depth knowledge of legal research and trial preparation. She has a thorough knowledge of procedures, principles, and terminology related to federal, state, and appellate courts.
On a more personal note, Kelly is a native Floridian who moved to Oviedo in 2010 with her husband, son, and daughter. When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her family, taking care of her horses, and volunteering in her local community.
Julie began her legal career as a legal assistant in 2018 with a boutique law firm in Orlando, where she worked on the personal injury team, assisting with car accident, slip and fall, theme park accident, and medical malpractice cases.
After two years, she transitioned to filing class action lawsuits against big auto insurance companies. This involved drafting demands, requesting medical records and billing, drafting and serving subpoenas, drafting motions, researching and vetting experts for class action and medical malpractice cases, and assisting with mediations and depositions.
Prior to working in the legal field, Julie spent 27 years as a medical assistant, paramedic, and eventually an oncology RN. This background gives her special insight into the injuries experienced by our clients.
Julie is a Florida native and lives with her husband and 8-year-old daughter. They love to cruise every chance they get and have been to numerous destinations in the Caribbean.
