    Legal and Business Professional

    United States - Last active: 10/09/2014 - Tests: 4

    I am a legal professional with extensive research, writing, and editing experience. I have experience in general contract and business litigation. I have most recently been assisting in large-scale corporate litigation. However, I am looking to transition my career to a more advisory-type position. As such, I am looking to increase my experience and skill level through projects and opportunities outside my every day practice. Aside from my day-to-day law practice, I also engage in freelance editing assignments, ranging from requests from other legal professionals to professional in the IT industry. My experience and interests are quite broad. I always welcome the opportunity to engage in activities where I will learn or experience something new.

    Clutter-breaker extraordinaire.

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 12

    You want to break through the clutter. I want to deliver content that does. Simple. Creative content and sales-driven messages are my fortes. I have developed marketing communications materials such as brochures, sales letters, press releases, product descriptions, TVC and RDC scripts, advertising copy and packaging copy for numerous successful brands. I like to think of myself as a versatile writer, and can tweak my style according to the intended audience, platform and message content. I have written and published hundreds of articles online, and my research skills are legendary. I think typos are the scourge of the earth, and my attention to detail borders on the perverse!

    Go-To Pro-Writer

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 4

    My main objective as a writer is to provide clear, intriguing and detailed information to the world. I'm interested in most every subject, which means I'm very diverse. I have written non-fiction essays, papers and articles. I have also written, edited and published two fiction novels under the pen name Scarlet Clearwater. My favorite genres are sci-fi and erotica, however, I generally love to write anything, be it technical or creative. Currently, I'm writing a screenplay adapted from one of my novels. Professionally, I have experience in real estate, property management and law. I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies. I worked on oDesk last year for many hours, but due to a transfer in PCs, I lost my portfolio and had to start again. I hope this doesn't deter anyone from hiring me, as my work is top-notch.
