Meet Julie Abate

Hi, I’m Julie Abate, president of Across Town NotaryJulie Abate, principal at Across Town Notary Signing Service, LLC. I love meeting new people and visiting new places, and my role as a Mobile Notary and Signing Agent allows me to experience those bonuses while completing my work. In addition, I have used my AA degree in Paralegal Studies to acquire decades of experience as both a legal assistant and paralegal. In my 25+ years as a Notary and 11+ years as a Signing Agent, I’ve enjoyed unique experiences, including signings in a maternity ward waiting room, and sharing “witness” duties with a herd of deer in a family’s backyard!

Each of these roles has allowed me to provide excellent customer service in a business environment, earning clients’ trust with professionalism, efficiency, and enthusiasm for a job well done. More than supplying a needed business service, I care about my clients and want them to stay informed on the process, confident that every box has been checked, and errors avoided. I’ve served scores of clients over the years, and in 2021 alone, handled 800+ loan signings, including purchases, sales, and refinances.

That's when I decided to branch out and extend my knowledge and success to working with other Notary Signing Agents as a Signing Service.

After decades of fast-paced work in the legal field, I enjoy the flexibility of being able to set my own schedule and be there for my kids' activities. My experience in the legal field gives me extra knowledge that only increases the value I bring to my clients and I'm happy to pass that benefit along to them!

Many big name signing services charge a $75 cancellation fee whether or not there is notice or if it's last minute. Across Town Notary does not charge a cancellation fee. We believe in relationships, not in charging fees.

I am also a LegalShield Associate.

Are you even vaguely interested in what a membership-based legal plan can do for you?  Please call or text me and I can fill you in.  They are amazing products that give you as much access to an attorney’s advice as you need, all month long, as long as you need it. 

I am an authorized associate to enroll people in the LegalShield family of products.  I became interested in LegalShield in 2022 and started doing this in early 2023.  I have plans in place for myself, my husband, and our business.  I learn more and more about what their products can do and what it means to the people the plans protect.  LegalShield has been around for 50 years and is headquartered in Oklahoma.  Their products include membership-based legal plans, business-covered plans, and IDShield to protect you from identity theft.

My favorite product is the identity protection plan.  It is the best! (even compared to what you see on TV or get in the mail!)  IDShield costs one-third of what the well-known LifeLock costs, and covers so much more! IDShield is truly a different product.  Here’s what IDShield does:  monitors my social security card, all of my credit/debit/store cards, passport, medical record, social media, driver’s license, dark web, court records and so much more.  Best of all, if my identity is hacked, MY PLAN PAYS to have a team of private investigators restore my identity to before-event status, no matter how long it takes.

I’m happy to answer all questions.  Call or text (888) 661-7977.

Personal Time: When I’m not making sure every I is dotted and T crossed, I love spending time at the lake with my family, romping with our dogs, and dabbling in nature photography. Free time is spent on volunteer activities, participation in the  Kingsburg and Fresno Chambers of Commerce activities, and catching up on action/adventure and SciFi movies. I have a hard time choosing which I love most: chocolate, coffee, wine tasting, or Italian cuisine!

“Messaged on Friday afternoon and received a response immediately.  Julie agreed to come out to our house on Sunday since we had 12 documents to notarize and didn't want to take my elderly mother out of the house.  She was right on time, very organized, and got everything signed and notarized quickly.  I highly recommend her! ✴✴✴✴✴  5 Stars!” - LM
