    I graduated from King's College London in 2010 with a 2:1 law degree and subsequently completed my Legal practice course the following year. Unfortunately after a year practicing as a legal costs draftsman I realised that it was not only draining my soul but that it was impossible to see the world with such a pitiful holiday allowance. As a result I spent a year travelling and after a brief return to the UK (to top up funds) I will be heading to New Zealand for summer. I have a great command of the English language and thoroughly enjoy writing about a wide variety of topics. In addition, a positive outcome of legal training is my ability to thoroughly research new topics and extract all relevant facts, opinions or any other information of interest. As a result I can write a wide variety of articles from either a personal perspective or based on comprehensive research. Legal drafting has ensured that I can write succinctly and factually however I prefer writing in a more relaxed and personalised way. My style would lend itself to travel, advertising, humorous or slightly tongue in cheek articles.  less

    While working within the legal environment I have managed projects, paralegals, and departments. Other experience includes working on mass litigation cases involving hundreds of clients as well as assisting the solo attorney grow their practice. In addition to managing cases and law offices, I have assisted in the training of first and second year lawyers in the practice of law. My writing experience consist of drafting legal pleadings ranging from complaints, trial briefs, appeals briefs, agreements, and other various and routine legal documents within the law office/department. These writings were utilized in bankruptcy, civil, criminal, administrative, governmental agency, and corporate law areas. Additional writing experience includes writing self-help legal articles in the areas of bankruptcy, civil, family, worker's comp, and tax law. My experience also includes working with individuals in preparing legal documents to present to the court, with or without an attorney. Additional experience includes document review for pre-litigation and discovery purposes, and legal research using LexisNexis and Westlaw to determine the viability of legal arguments. Once the document review and research was completed, I prepared motions and memorandum for the assigned attorney to review for submission to the respective court, whether federal or state. As a paralegal with such diverse attributes and skills, I can assist any person ranging from a law firm looking to outsource work, to the individual or business owner looking to lower their cost, as well as the solo attorney who needs to contract work to achieve their budgeted goals.
