I am currently an independent contract attorney. I work mostly in family law, but can also do other contract work. I am an excellent proofreader, and a great legal writer and researcher. This is my preferred work, but I am open to discuss anything you can throw at me. I want to expand my legal knowledge, and take on some challenging tasks in order to help my career. I have spent 6 months before law school working for a public defender. During my second summer of law school, I worked with a private family and criminal law attorney. Since I have passed the BAR in October, I have continued to work with that attorney, and I also work with a second family attorney. Feel free to contact me with your ideas or needs.
