I have been a Legal Assistant, specializing in Family Law and Independent Contractor since 2001. Currently seeking independent employment that I may do from home. I find I have more time and less distractions to get assignments done in a timely and efficient manner. As an Independent Contractor I primarily typed large Memorandums of Understanding and Arbetrations for Mediators. As a Legal Assistant I often typed motions based on the Attorneys instructions and I would proof read motions for errors such as spelling, grammar and continuity of content and making appropriate corrections before filing with the court system. Being detail oriented I can prioritize tasks, as well as meet and exceed deadlines.
