Ervine operates two legal document businesses, Red Sky Legal (www.redskylegal.com) and Construction Commando (www.constructioncommando.com), and works as a freelance paralegal. She brings to ALDAP more than a decade of experience managing non-profit organizations. Following a successful career in philanthropy, she transitioned to the legal field in 2001. In 2006 she let her position as a corporate paralegal and registered as an LDA. Ervine is registered as an LDA in San Diego and San Luis Obispo Counties. She holds an ABA Approved Paralegal Certificate and is a Certified Notary Signing Agent. Ervine also currently serves as ALDAP’s acting Director of Communications.
