*****AS A PHILIPPINE-BASED LAWYER*****
In 2010, I began my journey in freelancing as a medical and general transciptionist, web content writer doing product reviews until I developed skills in legal research and ghostwriting pleadings in various remote job platforms.
Several years later, I took a break from freelancing as I was admitted to the practice of law and worked in the government as a military/judge advocate service officer, assuming multiple duties in court martial as a judge advocate (prosecutor) and as a military defense counsel for officers charged by the Board with administrative offenses, legal officer in the department handling the real estate disputes involving public and proprietary lands of the government, consultant in investigation committees and boards, and as legal officer in technical teams involved with government procurement projects.
Currently, I am a private practitioner mostly engaged in litigation, with experience in addressing legal issues such as: ▶️Litigation of civil claims e.g. annulments of contracts, breach of contracts, claims for damages, specific performance, claim for sum of money ▶️ Dispute negotiations involving real estate e.g. unlawful detainer, ejectment, quieting of title, reconveyance ▶️ Petitions on reissuance of lost title, assistance in real estate transfer, and representation in adversarial special proceedings such as change, cancellation and correction of entries in the civil registry ▶️ Petitions and Complaints involving Family Law s e.g. voluntary separation of properties, legal separation, claims for financial support ▶️ Criminal law defense of accused individuals ▶️ Defense of government officials and employees charged with administrative offenses, Response to violations, property accountability and notice of disallowance ▶️ Petitions for review of decisions of lower courts and quasijudicial agencies ▶️ Drafting, review and amendment of contracts, review and legal opinion on commercial transactions, legal consultation on issues involving application of civil law, labor and employment law, commercial and corporate law ▶️ Provide written legal opinions on the appication of Philippine citizenship laws, tax criminal liabilitye laws, as well as case evaluation on whether to compromise or go to trial
Being a former freelancer, I understand the urgency to accomplish remote quality tasks with excellent turnaround time.
I am open to long term projects by the hour as well as in coming up with simpe tasks such as contracts and documents drafting, written legal consultations, and other documents with varying degrees of complexity offered in fixed price.
