    Independent, goal-oriented, organized and globally competent, I am a fourth year law student with a mastery of both the written and oral language of Filipino and English. At a very young age, I found fun in writing and I used to write poems, short stories and even tried writing and composing songs. During my high school and college years, I very much enjoyed writing reflection/reaction papers, research papers and even answering essays for exams. Before entering law school, I worked for a credit card company as a customer service representative. Thereafter, I also worked for a few months as a legal assistant for another company. In the latter, I experienced attending board meetings and writing the minutes thereof. I was also able to scan, edit and proof read various legal contracts and file/register different legal documents in the respective government offices. In law school, I have been trained to approach issues and find corresponding solutions and/or conclusions in a direct and concise way. We were made to read full texts of the Supreme Court decisions and summarize and simplify them in a way that a lay man would understand. I am glad to be able to apply such a skill in many aspects of life, not only when I concern myself with legal matters. I am a determined fast learner and an efficient worker when I put my heart and mind into things. I am patient and am open to any and all opportunities that come my way. I am eager to help and make use of my gifts and talents whenever and however I can. I am willing to be hired as proof reader, researcher, legal researcher/writer, web content writer, article writer, blog writer and/or typist.  less

    [![best freelance writers ][1]][2] # ![][3]![][4]![][5]![][6]I am a Senior Associate in a firm based in Makati. I practice corporate law, litigation & government contracts.

Our method of instruction & practice, therefore, make us ideal candidates for the preparation of int'l standard legal documents.

I also have an odesk provider co , Virtual Legal Services Group, which was created to cater to law firms abroad.
