Service Description

As a former prosecutor and law clerk from a city attorney's office and district attorney's offices in two different states, I was continuously sought out by attorneys and supervisors to write and edit motions in limine, factual briefs, and memorandums. My ability to write within another person's style, research topics quickly, craft winning arguments, and explain complex issues of law concisely and clearly made me a sought after legal writer and editor.

I am also a former instructor for the Law Schools Admissions Test. This position required me to break down complex logic concepts into easily understandable pieces while keeping the content relatable and entertaining for a wide range of students.

While my experience is in legal writing, my skills transfer into any type of writing, especially any type of persuasive piece. I excel at:
1. research: both organizing your research and performing new research for any
topic
2. writing: I can write any type of article, blog post, or summary of cases or law. I
specialize in reducing complex data and information into easily understandable
and entertaining pieces.
3. editor: I can help you organize your ideas, thoughts, and own writing so it is as
effective and compelling as possible

I can help research and write legal memorandums, as well as simplify legal information, but I cannot provide any type of legal advice. Any work performed will not be in an attorney scope.
