I am a legal professional who can offer services pertaining to legal matters. I am likewise a highly-experienced writer who have 8 years of experience doing academic, article, SEO, etc. writing. It has been my desire to be able to use my writing skills into good use. To earn from it is a bonus. I would like to help those with writing needs, even students who may have writing requirements. I also can give sound legal advice and information that could be of big help to those who may not afford expensive attorney's fees. I took my masters degree in International Business Law in the University of Liverpool in UK and can thereby handle legal matters regardless of the country of origin. Besides my legal and writing experiences, I am also an experienced manager who have handled administrative work mostly for company presidents and CEOs.

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.
