    I have spent over 30 years as a paralegal, primarily in litigation. I am extremely experienced in drafting medical summaries and medical chronologies and am quite knowledgeable in medical vocabulary and technology. My internet research capabilities are flawless and I feature a quick turn-around on most projects. I can summarize depositions by topic, by co-worker, or in other styles as requested. I have excellent writing, editing, and proofreading skills, and I have edited and proofread briefs and pleadings going to the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as to lower courts, both federal and state. I have drafted and responded to hundreds of discovery requests and pleadings over the years. I also have a strong background in class actions and mass tort litigation. As an Upwork contractor, I have provided paralegal support in a wide variety of situations. I have proofread legal documents, websites, student theses, medical/psychological reports, curricula vitae and a variety of other documents. I have also written, proofed and edited a corporate in-house publication and written legal blogs for attorney websites. I have created medical chronological summaries in a wide variety of cases. My clients have said: "Mary did prompt efficient work on this task. We will definitely seek to use her again in the future." "Excellent in all ways." "Proactive". "Mary exceeded expectations. She was quick, thorough and thoughtful." I am a native English speaker (American) with a BA from Indiana University. Additionally, I have a paralegal certificate from Tulane University. NOTE: AS A PARALEGAL, I AM LEGALLY PROHIBITED FROM GIVING LEGAL ADVICE OR ACTING IN ANY WAY AS AN ATTORNEY AND I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY JOBS OF THAT TYPE.

    I am a contracts attorney with over 24 years of experience at General Electric, Teachers College Columbia University, and Siemens Energy, where I've drafted, negotiated, and executed billions of dollars of large, complex, cutting-edge technology contracts across the globe. I am an expert. Currently, I have my own practice where my focus spans a wide range of contractual agreements including: ● influencer ● partnering ● publishing ● SaaS ● IP licensing ● technology transfer ● website terms of use ● CCPA & GDPR compliant privacy policies ● IT outsourcing ● cloud services ● residential and commercial construction ● subcontractor ● education ● FERPA ● medical ● HIPAA ● mergers and acquisitions ● employment ● commercial lease ● equity share ● equipment sale & lease ● franchise ● travel ● confidentiality ● non-compete ● RFP/RFQ ● FAR ● AIA ● and more…. I write clear and concise documents, that are accurate, balanced, and marketable. I provide practical advice on complex contractual terms. I ensure technical excellence by drafting prudent agreements and promptly answer technical queries about contracts law and best practices. I also advise on contractual disputes to achieve the most favorable outcomes. Seeing the data revolution, I'm also developing Contract Reader - an artificial intelligence algorithm that reads your contract and displays significant risk issues. You don't have to read the boring stuff! This is a revolutionary form of legal service that's immediate, accurate, and very inexpensive.

    I protect your content from getting stolen over the web and if someone is using your content without your permission, I report and take down the pirated content under DMCA. I provide services to online content creators such as writers, bloggers, photographers, and the companies who own intellectual content of any type, or copyright products. My motto is to end content piracy. Here is my Plan of action: 1) I start by searching for all the websites which are stealing and using your content, through all the web search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo, AOL, Yandex, etc.) using multiple effective keywords. 2) I de-index (remove) those websites from the search engines.

    My name is Chiara, and I'm a Bilingual (ENG/SPA) immigration paralegal motivated by the idea that our work impacts people far beyond securing a work visa or a green card, and that passion is embedded into how I operate and approach every project I'm involved in. I have over three years of full-time experience supporting US-based attorneys in preparing mainly family-based and employment-based immigrant and non-immigrant petitions/applications - including, but not limited to: H1-B, L-1A, TN, R1, O-1, EB-2, EB-2 NIW, immediate relative petitions, and a range of other immigration categories (such as U.S. citizenship). Additionally, my experience as a remote worker and participation in process improvements at past clients' firms has deepened my knowledge and interest in automation, legal technology, and specifically: the technical and social process of their implementation. Because of this, I enjoy setting up and working with softwares such as: MyCase, Cerenade, Docketwise, Pipefile, Asana, Clio, Notion, Acuity Scheduling, Calendly, MS Office, Google Workspace, iWork, Adobe Acrobat, and other similar tools. I can serve as a sole immigration paralegal service provider or extension of an in-house team to assist with any upcoming deadline or complex matter (RFEs, Motions to reopen, and similar). Feel free to send me a message! **PLEASE NOTE** I am not authorized to practice law in the United States or provide legal advice. In addition, I do not offer immigration paralegal services to the general public. My work is performed only under the direct supervision and guidance of licensed immigration attorneys. If you are require assistance with an immigration matter, all I can do is refer you to qualified attorneys who can provide you with the necessary legal support.

    A highly experienced and entrepreneurial lawyer, I work primarily with business owners and founders in connection with mergers and acquisitions, securities law and contracts. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, finished in the top 7% of my law school class, where I graduated with honors and was selected as a Managing Editor of the Law Review, worked as a law clerk for a federal judge where I drafted opinions for the judge's review and briefed the judge on applicable law, and I was trained at Ballard Spahr and Morgan Lewis, two of the largest law firms in the United States. I also acquired, built and sold dozens of businesses, exposing me to corporate and securities law from a real world, entrepreneurial perspective. I did most of the contractual, M&A, tax planning, employment law and other legal work myself for my own companies because I love practicing law. I thoroughly enjoy working with business owners and their management teams to craft efficient and creative solutions to legal challenges. That's why I returned to the full-time practice of law after building and selling a number of successful businesses. I’m now seeking creative ways to build a practice that fits into my lifestyle, and that requires primarily working remotely. Upwork is an ideal platform for me to connect with innovative business owners, corporations and law firms seeking top-notch legal work that leverages technology to meet both my objectives and and my clients' goals as well. I have substantial experience with mergers and acquisitions, tax planning (I also have an LL.M. in Taxation from NYU), employment law, corporate formation and governance. I've helped many clients comply with securities law issues in connection with raising capital through private placements and crowdfunding transactions. NEED HELP WITH A BUSINESS LAW CHALLENGE? DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME FOR: √ Letters of Intent √ Private Placement Memos √ Subscription Agreements √ Reg D Filings / Private Placements √ Regulation Crowdfunding Compliance √ Securities law compliance including Reg A+, Reg D, Reg CF, Reg S √ Operating Agreements √ Partnership Agreements √ Employment Agreements √ Independent Contractor Agreements √ NDAs and Confidentiality Agreements √ Website terms and conditions and privacy policies √ Asset purchase agreements, stock purchase agreements, mergers and acquisitions √ Copyright issues √ Trademark issues √ Employment discrimination, overtime and other employment issues √ Appellate briefs √ Motions and a supporting memorandum of law √ Any other legal issues requiring experienced, realistic and actionable advice. I look forward to hearing from you, and to the prospect of working together in the near future. Sincerely, Barry
