    I write and create content for a variety of clients in a number of different contexts. In fact, there is very little business, legal, or creative writing I do not do, and do well. When I am on the job, assignments are completed with faultless professionalism. Deadlines are always met, communication is regular and detailed, and my fees are fair for the quality of work I provide. I am professionally cordial in demeanor and easy to work with. If I may, let me outline my background, then turn to specific areas of expertise. Practicing law, writing/creating/presenting content, leading teams, hiring, on-boarding, and managing day-to-day employer-employee/union relations defined the lion's share of the work I did when employed full-time. As a freelancer, I have a litigation attorney's training and experience organizing, summarizing, and presenting, both in writing and orally, complex and often contradictory information. I am expertly transform specialized information requiring technical knowledge into plain, east-to-understand English without distortion or over-simplification. An exceedingly quick study, under pressure for high stakes is an environment with which I have years of experience and in which I thrive. I am a published, award-winning, short fiction writer. Everything I write is invariably creative, drawing the reader in and keeping her engaged as the story moves along. (All writing should tell a story, even the most technical). I copyedit/prepare for publication autobiographies, biographies, non-fiction, business, and self-help manuscripts. Having written a novel myself, I am also available to ghostwrite just about anything (although I might not be the best choice to ghostwrite your romance novel). I have mastered MS Office (primarily, Word and PowerPoint, but Excel, as well) and all the Google Workspace apps. If you prefer, I am also more than familiar with the LibreOffice and FreeOffice suites of apps. Drafting, reviewing, and consulting with respect to contracts or legal correspondence you may have received (a claim against you or the dreaded “lawyer’s letter”) are areas where I am particularly well-suited to provide professional services. With respect specifically to contracts, if you require someone who understands all the implications, including the boilerplate clauses, of a contract you or your company is being asked to sign, or to review/redraft an existing contract template, I provide top-level service. If you find yourself in the midst of a dispute concerning the language of a contract to which you are already party, or if you wish to end a contract with minimal liability, I am available to give advice. Please note, however, that should the circumstances call for it, I will encourage you to formally retain counsel in your jurisdiction. My skills and experience permit me to comprehend the law in all English-speaking jurisdictions and to conduct legal research as required. I have an extraordinary eye for detail. Relentless describes my approach to asking questions about the context of a document I am drafting or reviewing. To ensure that my client's interests are fully protected and advanced, my goal is always to ensure that I do not fall into the “I didn’t know what I didn’t know” trap. US immigration law is an area in which I have specific and wide-ranging experience. I routinely draft briefs, letters of support, petitioner's statements, and related correspondence to the USCIS in support of the clients of the law firms for which I freelance. My skills as a general business, marketing, and SEO content writer (articles, blogs, FAQs) are also at the highest possible level. I write effectively in almost any context a company might require. When I practiced law, I crafted all of my firm’s important legal opinion letters because my writing was always easy to understand and persuasive. As mentioned above - it bears repeating - retooling technically specialized or complex material so that it is accessible to a wide audience is one of my notable strengths. I have specific experience writing business plans and related PowerPoint presentations. I am seeking general business and creative writing assignments and writing assignments related to legal matters, including contract drafting/reviewing/negotiating.

    I have been in the commercial real estate industry for 35+ years and, through this experience, I have written, created, evaluated and analyzed proformas and business plans for companies and specific projects. I have experience in both legal and business backgrounds, but my writing is on the level of the reader; i.e., attorney, consumer, investor, business owners, etc. I was a certified tax preparer and held a Small Business Certification with the IRS. I have represented taxpayers in IRS audits to solve tax issues. I prepared tax returns for individuals, partnerships and S Corps. The most rewarding aspect of this position was to explain to people the effects of the tax code, translated onto a 1040, and applied to their lives and businesses. I write blogs, articles, study guides, and courses accredited by real estate commissions for private providers. I enjoy learning and researching as much as the writing.

    I have written legal articles for websites of law firms in the US (California, Florida, New York, and Connecticut) as well as for law firms in Australia (Brisbane, Queensland, Victoria, Melbourne and Western Australia). Topics included will and probate, DUI, DWI, drunk driving, sexual assault, domestic violence, child support, divorce, employment law, bankruptcy, notarial law and immigration. I have drafted contracts, service agreements and prepared deposition summaries. I have provided litigation support by drafting requests for production of documents, requests for stipulations and admissions, and requests for taking depositions. I have even assisted a defendant pro se in the preparation of questions to ask at a discovery deposition in an FTC enforcement case. I drafted guidance for the use of members of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I assisted in the writing of guidance in contract making, supervision, and diversity. I have recently self-published a book in the Philippines. I am writing a second book that I will also self-publish. I have ghost-written three ebooks for clients on Upwork on achieving financial independence, learning all about Windows 10, and how to get over a failed relationship. I am skilled in the use of the English language: I graduated from high school in the United States; I hold a bachelor's degree in law and in European Languages from the University of the Philippines. In my undergraduate years, I interned at a local political talk show on radio. I have been a member in good standing of the Philippine bar since 1995 and I handle litigation of labor, criminal and civil cases. I write petitions, position papers, complaints, memorandums of law and arguments, legal briefs and legal opinions. I lecture weekly on church history, the Scriptures and legal issues. I maintain an English-language blog: my posts are usually commentaries on legal issues as analyzed in the light of the Scriptures. I would like to explore other areas of legal practice and expand to other areas of legal writing on-line.

    I am an attorney licensed to practice in Nevada and Arizona. My primary areas of practice include civil personal injury/business litigation, appellate writing, criminal law, immigration, and I have handled various other projects in the civil arena. I received my education from the William S. Boyd School of Law and graduated in the top 12% of my class, receiving Cum Laude distinction. I was also initiated into the Scribes Association for Excellence in Legal Writing. While at Boyd, I completed a White Paper as a Nevada Law Editor through the Nevada Law Journal on the legal implications surrounding the Las Vegas Loop project involving Elon Musk's The Boring Company. My practical experience includes over five years of legal drafting as an attorney and law clerk for civil and criminal litigation. My civil litigation experience includes working for De Castroverde Law Group and Raich Law. I drafted civil briefs for personal injury and business litigation claims in federal and state courts, including responses to discovery, filing and answering complaints, mediation memoranda, and drafting dispositive motions. In addition, I also worked as a law clerk for the Eighth Judicial District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada, helping my judge brief complex civil matters such as multi-party personal injury and land-taking claims. For the past year, I have also practiced criminal law with experience in courtroom advocacy and drafting Appellate briefs for the Nevada Supreme Court. My experience would be an asset to any firm. Should you have any further questions, please reach me at my email tanner.castrolv@gmail.com. I look forward to working with you!

    I have over 30 years of experience as a corporate paralegal from the top firms in Chicago, and specialize in two areas: (1) Contract management and negotiation, including contract analysis, drafting of MSAs, employment contracts, construction contracts, website terms of use, negotiating on key terms, preparing addendums, and managing document execution; and (2) corporate entity formations in all 50 states, including LLCs, C-Corps, and S-Corps, and all compliance requirements such as drafting operating agreements, resolutions, bylaws, etc. A study has found that "for 42% of enterprises, the top driver for improvements in the management of contracts is the pressure to better assess and mitigate risks" and additionally, "nearly 65% of enterprises report that contract lifecycle management (CLM) has limited its exposure to financial and legal risk." I assist my clients with setting non-negotiable contract clauses and parameters for negotiations on additional terms. It's a difficult process to arrive at the decision to pass on a project due to contract constraints, but most companies have had the bad experience of signing a poorly written contract and being on the losing end. My contract management experience spans many industries, including subcontracts in the construction industry, architecture field, manufacturing, SaaS, healthcare, influencer, service, and creative, which also includes AIA contracts. I have been exposed to all sides of contract review and negotiation. I am able to utilize my negotiation and communication skills to bring parties together to agree on a mutually protective and beneficial contract. I am well-versed in a wide range of software applications. I am professional, honest, and maintain confidentiality at all times. My English grammar, vocabulary, spelling, and punctuation skills are impeccable. I am available during core business hours as well as outside core hours, and responsive to emergencies and tight deadlines. Complex document prep/redlining/version control Complex financial documentation including IPO offering statements Contracts (including AIA contracts) Estate planning documentation Proposals Bylaws/Articles of Incorporation Development of training/procedure manuals I have keen interpersonal skills -- such as conflict resolution, communication, problem solving, and time management -- which enables me to be an effective participant in any situation. I am a deft problem solver and will always find a solution to any problem a client is facing. Also, I have traveled extensively both internationally and domestically, which developed my cultural and political awareness and enables me to work more effectively with diverse groups. Teamwork, communication, integrity, and excellence comprise the foundation of my services. Teamwork is essential and I will assist you with any task that advances your strategic goals. I pride myself on fostering a collaborative environment that results in higher productivity and success for my clients. Communication is also essential and I will always keep you informed of the status of a project. I will never compromise my integrity and will always maintain the confidentiality of my clients and their business. Trust is essential between both parties and clear communication and teamwork maintains that trust. Following these three tenets guarantees excellence in both product quality and service. My priority is your success! No task is too small or too complex, and I will provide efficient and effective assistance with any project you have. I will be happy to meet with you to learn about you and your company.
