    My goals are to continue assisting individuals and businesses with fewer than fifty employees address their legal problems, and to continue helping them prevent other legal problems from occurring. I am a lawyer, licensed in California since 1986. During this time, I have represented companies in all phases of their existence. Much of my practice is devoted to helping companies address the range of legal issues and problems that can occur (labor problems, contract disputes, tax and environmental issues, business torts, IP disputes, and the like) through negotiation, arbitration, and litigation. I have also helped businesses draft their initial agreements and organization papers, prepared and reviewed agreements needed for the conduct of their business, and represented them during the sale or winding up of their business. I also work with individuals who wish to represent themselves in resolving a variety of disputes. I help them draft court papers, I coach them on arguments to make to the judge, and I ghost-write letters and settlement documents. This part of my practice is now expanding into assisting other lawyers who have a temporary surplus of work and need experienced assistance. I also have a small trusts, estates, and tax planning practice. I run a "virtual office," meaning nearly all communication will be electronic. For my clients' convenience, I have a San Francisco telephone and fax number. This structure allows me to pass substantial reductions in attorney's fees to my clients, while still providing the quality representation of an experienced and licensed lawyer in California and federal law.  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. Active practice of law complements my odesk tasks as I am able to continuously hone my skills.

Feel free to go over my profile to help you decide if I would be a good candidate for your legal requirements.

Only about 20% pass the bar each year. Philippine law is also patterened after US & Spanish laws . We apply both common & civil law concepts & our legal language is English. 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.

    I have more than ten years of experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating a broad spectrum of complex commercial agreements and successfully handling transactional matters. While I have experience working with Fortune 500 companies, the focus of my practice has been in working with startups, emerging companies and entrepreneurs through all stages of organizational lifecycle. Objectives and Professional Philosophy: My objective is to understand and balance a client’s strategic business objectives with the legal process and risk mitigation, and to proactively address potential liabilities. My work product should not only reflect a client’s intent, it should be reflective of the client’s professionalism (and mine). I don’t “dabble” in practice areas in which I don’t have sufficient experience, and do not expect a client to pay me to learn something I don’t already possess a firm grasp of. Following are some of the types of agreements/transactions I have significant experience handling: • Intellectual Property Protection Agreements, Policies (Nondisclosure Agreements, Proprietary Information and Invention Assignment Agreements, Trade Secret Protection Policies, and Brand Image Policies) • Website Terms (Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policies, and Terms of Use/Service) • Employment Agreements, Consulting/Advisory Agreements • Company Formation Documents (Operating Agreements for LLCs, Bylaws for corporations, Organizational Consents, Shareholder and Buy/Sell Agreements) • Partnership Agreements, Joint Venture Agreements, Management Agreements • Supply Chain Agreements (Procurement, Manufacturing, Supply and Distribution) • Disposition Agreements (Asset Purchase; Stock Purchase; Mergers & Acquisitions) • Business Visas and Immigration (H-1B, TN, E-2, L and EB categories) and Family-Based Immigration (Marriage to US Citizen, Adjustment of Status, Permanent Residency, Green Card, Citizenship) My professional experience includes my current solo practice as an attorney/business advisor, and also includes in-house work for an integrated consumer electronics company in the Bay Area, and more than six years as an Associate (Emerging Companies Practice Group) with an international AmLaw 100 law firm. I have maintained State Bar licensure (in good standing) since my admittance in 2003, and would be happy to provide my complete resume and verification of my credentials upon request. (I am new to oDesk, and am thus offering a reduced hourly rate.)  less
