I write clear, concise, compelling copy for websites, blogs and articles. I translate complex concepts into simple prose that anyone can understand. I'm an experienced professional who delivers clean, crisp copy, and does it on time.
I'm a former journalist, a former practicing attorney, and a former legal blogger writing on small business topics. I have written hundreds of articles, legal briefs, memoranda and pieces of correspondence.
My speciality is writing web copy, blog posts and marketing materials for lawyers. Because of my background, I understand the law, the lawyers who practice it, and the ethical constraints on marketing legal services.
Not a lawyer? I love to learn about new products and businesses. My other writing (and life) interests include food and nutrition (especially vegetarian and organic), small businesses, sewing and crafts, fine arts, bicycling and travel.
