As described above, I am looking for arguments to be used in opposition to a Motion to Compel hearing in about 1 week which is drafted most probably primarily for the purposes of being awarded sanctions. I will need the arguments ASAP so as to decide which to use and how best to organize and deliver them. The situation: There have been issues by and between the parties for many months now over discovery issues with both sides have, whether intentional or not, contributed to the delay in the discovery progress. I will of course provide copies of pertinent documents to the person chosen to work on this matter. Although this is a single item request I am hoping to find someone to continue working with on this case and others but that is not necessary.

I am a Houston, TX based attorney. I recently started up my own law firm and I'm in need of an independent paralegal who can complete legal tasks including, but not limited to, drafting/answering petitions, discovery, motions, keeping track of cases, etc. Being familiar with Texas law would be very beneficial. Being a Certified Paralegal would be even more awesome. Is this scope of work something you're comfortable with and what experience do you have in this? If it works out we can possibly start a long term business relationship where I'll be sending you work on a regular basis.
