Emma Smith | PA EDitorial

              Julie's intuition is second to none. She is utterly dedicated to providing edits of the highest quality within a very reasonable timeframe. Her timekeeping and turnaround under pressure is exemplary. Julie’s warm, buoyant, and professional attitude is infectious and her interactions with colleagues and clients at all levels are always very positive. She displays a high level of expertise and knowledge in all aspects of her role. Julie is always willing and ready to assist when and wherever she can, including at very short notice. We feel very lucky to have such a proficient, committed copyeditor on board.



I worked within the legal profession for over eleven years: lecturing, writing course modules and associated documents while developing students' written and practical skills. Having founded and directed the award-winning Legal Advice Centre, I acted as a consultant for other universities, built international relationships with law firms and universities all over the world, as well as sitting as a magistrate. For my contributions and commitment, I won both internal and external awards. Prior to this, I spent ten years in the commercial world. 


I bring this same commitment to all my work and continue to review my skill base so I am able to offer clients the most up-to-date and appropriately aware service possible.
