    Being a freelancer is not always, in my reality-based opininon, unqualified to do some works. On the contrary, sometimes a freelancer could give you a unique, surprising, shock and attractive result experience of a project. As an interpreter and translator, I always have a faith that interpreting and translating is an art to change the word's form, from one to another language by maintaining the original taste of the origin language. Moreover, the main priority of these activities is to produce a translation that could gain the people’s highest comprehension by observing the targeted language development. It requires skills and creativities for the translator/interpreter itself. With the ability, skill and 4 years eperience in this field, I would be glad to offer my services to anyone who need by providing a high quality result to reach a mutual benefits.  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. For indiv odesk buyers or start-up co's., I perform tasks on my own & work closely with them, paying particular attention to their budgets and deadlines. I also have an odesk provider co , Virtual Legal Services Group, which was created to cater to law firms abroad. VLSG is composed of RP lawyers from top schools, i.e., Ateneo & UP - schools which have produced the highest number of bar passers and top notchers in RP history. For firms based abroad looking into outsourcing workload, VLSG is poised to be of assistance. Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. Good luck in your business.
