    I worked for Robert Half International as an assistant to twelve recruiters, assisting them with all aspects of their job from answering phones and compiling routine correspondence to purchasing marketing materials and completing expense reports. Following my employment with Robert Half International I began my career with United States Probation Office. My first position was as receptionist and I quickly moved into a clerk position, assisting officers with their caseloads and providing support functions throughout the office. My final position was as Officer Support Specialist where I conducted investigations and provided any administrative functions as needed. During this time I was able to experience a myriad of administrative functions. I specifically worked as a background investigator for the last 4 and a half years, utilizing proprietary software, online sensitive resources, and public information to provide a full history for the judge to make decisions on bond and release. The specific investigative systems I have experience with include, but are not limited to, NCIC, NLETS, Clear, Lexis Nexis, Westlaw, and PACTS. I also used public information obtained from local courts. My last position with the United States Probation Office required me to work with little to no supervision and provided me with opportunities for personal and professional growth. While working in this capacity I also obtained my Master's degree, maintaining a 3.9 grade point average.  less

    I am a licensed attorney (Iowa & Florida) with over ten years of legal research and writing experience, graduated in the top 10% of my law school class, was Captain of Drake University Law School’s National Moot Court Team, and earned my MBA while completing law school. I've been self-employed as a Freelance Law Clerk for the past five years. Prior to this position, I practiced healthcare and corporate law for two years in Bradenton, Florida. I left Bradenton to accommodate my husband's career and we currently reside in California, but I work with attorneys and law firms nationwide. I've worked on projects in a variety of practice areas, including: medical malpractice, personal injury, health care compliance, corporate transactional, ERISA, family law, bankruptcy, and general business litigation. I am also experienced at drafting and editing omplex legal documents, such as pre-trial motions, supporting memoranda, client opinion letters, appellate briefs, and various transactional agreements. Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working for the legal and compliance departments at a major national Professional Employer Organization – my primary responsibilities in this role are to review the PEO’s contracts and policies to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations and to modify the PEO’s contracts, policies, and agreements to bring them into compliance. I was also tasked with overhauling the PEO’s master service agreement – the agreement that is used with every PEO client – a project that required more than 50 hours of detailed and complex contract drafting. While the PEO’s compliance director is on maternity leave, I’ve also been hired to review and revise various contracts with clients and vendors. I am looking for additional legal research, writing, editing, and litigation support projects. Please browse my website (http://www.lrw4attorneys.com) to learn more about my qualifications and experience. PLEASE NOTE -- My Florida and Iowa bar licenses are INACTIVE. By law, I am only authorized to work for licensed attorneys - I cannot work for private individuals or provide legal advice.
