I am a licensed lawyer. Despite the fact that I am a legal practitioner by profession, I am in Odesk because I have decided to find a job with a steady income as admittedly, private practice in the Philippines, especially in our city, is not as lucrative as I have initially expected. With my background, I can manage people, draft legal documents, do literary pieces, and anything that is within the bounds of my capacity. I am versatile, hardworking and dedicated.
