Get Your Legal Research Project Started Today!

Post your legal research project on oDesk and find professional legal researchers who can search through relevant sources of law, legislation and legal documentation to support your court case. These experienced assistants can search for patents and trademarks among legal research websites and databases; provide you with a different legal research methodology or law practice management software; and gather information about your case, from product history and origins to medical tests and sales statistics. You will also find intellectual property experts who can perform competitive research and determine whether patent, trademark, or copyright infringement has been committed against your company or website.

Legal research refers to the task of finding and gathering information necessary to support a legal case. On oDesk, the world’s largest online workplace, lawyers and law firms hire talented legal researchers and assistants — who may have professional experience in corporate law, criminal law or patent law — to conduct thorough legal research about workplace policies, consumer rights, or specific regulations. They can also draft legal documents, write detailed reports, or prepare presentations — including case studies, statutes, law reviews, or reviewing ethic and moral aspects of a subject.

    NOTE: I only accept hourly jobs unless I am the one applying. Please do not offer me fixed rate jobs. I no longer accept fixed rate. You will be wasting your time and mine if you offer me a fixed rate job. In order for me to accept a fixed rate job, I have to be the one who applied; offered fixed rate jobs will be ignored unless I actively applied. My objective is to use my skills in marketing and criminal justice to help people. I have experience in email marketing, and I am a fast learner. On the criminal justice side, I have a Bachelor's degree in criminal justice. This degree can be put to work for you and your company in many ways. I can do many things with my marketing and criminal justice experience; just let me know what you need. On the writing and editing side of things, as you can see, I have much oDesk experience with both writing and editing articles. I am very detail oriented and I have a very creative mind. I strive to get my work done efficiently and in a timely manner. Contact me if you think my writing or editing skills can be useful to you. On the customer service side of things, I have over ten years of customer service experience, and I pride myself in providing the best customer service that I possibly can. I can handle irritable and angry customers well, as well as deal with questions and concerns that customers have. I have much experience writing BMR articles, and can write them fairly quickly. I have written literally thousands of them, and have gotten quite good at it. Though BMR is now out of business, the SEO experience I gained from writing these articles is still very useful. At this time, I am looking for a full time job. Preferably, this job will involve writing. Contact me if you think my skills can help you.  less
