    I have a J.D. and a B.A. For many years I worked as an appellate attorney, practicing in both state and federal courts. I also practiced in the areas of criminal defense, employment law, and personal injury litigation. For several years, I was a part-time law school instructor of legal research and writing. I also did some part-time editing for a legal publication. While I maintain a mailing address in the United States, a few years ago I took an early retirement and moved overseas to pursue a more relaxing lifestyle. For most of the year, I live on a tropical island in the South Pacific where I work as a freelance writer, editor, and legal analyst. Although I write fiction as a hobby, I supplement my income by doing a variety of contract writing and editing. Most of clients have law-related websites, for which I produce blog posts, informative articles, FAQs, eBooks, and landing pages. I also write or assist in the preparation of legal documents and briefs. In addition, I have done academic and professional ghostwriting, including preparation of academic papers, website articles, and political position papers. On occasion I edit books for self-published authors. Among ongoing projects, I have a contract to write summaries of administrative law decisions for a trade association website and I regularly produce blog posts and articles for law-related websites. Although legal research and analysis is a specialty, I have a broad academic background in English literature, politics, and social sciences. My book blog is popular and I was once a front page writer for a popular political blog. I am available for freelance assignments only.  less

    Thank you for taking an interest in my profile. I graduated law school in 2008 with a goal of becoming a civil litigator, possibly in family law, although I was very interested in criminal and immigration laws, too. I was willing to enter any legal discipline when I experienced a near fatal stroke that left me unable to walk or speak clearly. None of my memories or cognition were compromised. I am able to do anything online, but I cannot speak clearly over the telephone. If an employer prefers to speak with me over the phone I can talk, but regular phone contact with clients is not possible. I am willing to work through the night if you require a fast turnaround time, but ordinarily I require about three days depending on the complexity of the issue. Working at home is easiest for me because I cannot drive or do many of the other things that are required to work outside of the home. I have recently decided I have not just lost everything; I have a great education and mind and I owe it to myself to use it. Just because I cannot pace back and forth giving a closing statement does not mean I should do nothing. My dreams are less grand than they were before, I want to be proud of my work and I want my employers to be satisfied. I will work as hard as I can because I want to begin working as soon as possible and cultivate long term relationships where possible with employers. I have unrivaled honesty and integrity; I am very proud of those qualities so I will never submit work that I am not proud to call my own.  less
