Over the past 15 years I have developed a wide range of skills working as an independent contractor. I love to learn and because of that there are multiple jobs that I enjoy and excel at. Although I enjoy all of my jobs, I am most passionate about writing. I am fortunate to have a lot of experience in many areas, such as: Writing: SEO Content, Copy writer, Creative (bachelor's degree in Journalism), Mac Specialist, IT (tech support for AOL), Paralegal (legal asst. degree), Private Investigation (licensed), Researcher, Data Entry, Writing for ChaCha and Ask.com, Accounts Payable and Receivable, General Automotive Knowledge (1 year auto mechanics), and more. However, whatever it is that I am tasked to do I give my all. It is very important to me that I do the job to my employer's expectations; it makes them feel good which makes me feel good.

For the past three years, I have worked as a paralegal, providing a variety of legal services, including legal research and document drafting. As a paralegal, I pride myself in being able to accurately analyze legal issues and communicate ideas clearly and unambiguously in writing. I'm currently seeking to build a reputation as a reliable independent contractor who consistently produces high-quality work at an affordable price. I earned my degree in ABA accredited paralegal studies in 2010 from Miami Dade College. English is my native language. I am also fluent in Spanish and have completed college level courses in technical translation.
I am a paralegal, and I would love some extra work in the legal field. I have taken my legal research & writing classes, as well as criminal law, tort law, real estate law, and estate law. I graduate in a few month with my Bachelor's, and then move onto my Masters. I also have experience with web content and blog articles; I have written for various legal blog and firm websites.
While working within the legal environment I have managed projects, paralegals, and departments. Other experience includes working on mass litigation cases involving hundreds of clients as well as assisting the solo attorney grow their practice. In addition to managing cases and law offices, I have assisted in the training of first and second year lawyers in the practice of law. My writing experience consist of drafting legal pleadings ranging from complaints, trial briefs, appeals briefs, agreements, and other various and routine legal documents within the law office/department. These writings were utilized in bankruptcy, civil, criminal, administrative, governmental agency, and corporate law areas. Additional writing experience includes writing self-help legal articles in the areas of bankruptcy, civil, family, worker's comp, and tax law. My experience also includes working with individuals in preparing legal documents to present to the court, with or without an attorney. Additional experience includes document review for pre-litigation and discovery purposes, and legal research using LexisNexis and Westlaw to determine the viability of legal arguments. Once the document review and research was completed, I prepared motions and memorandum for the assigned attorney to review for submission to the respective court, whether federal or state. As a paralegal with such diverse attributes and skills, I can assist any person ranging from a law firm looking to outsource work, to the individual or business owner looking to lower their cost, as well as the solo attorney who needs to contract work to achieve their budgeted goals.
