  1. Mark Shipowick

    Mark Shipowick

    Tax, business and immigration attorney.

    United States - Tests: 1

    I began my career as a legal intern at Cunningham Swan in Kingston, Canada in 1989 then practiced under senior attorney Doran R. Henderson before founding the Shipowick law office in 1992. My practice included business, insurance, and mortgage litigation, criminal appeals and a variety of administrative tribunal work. In 1997 I transitioned to the Canadian federal government working as a business adviser and tax auditor for ten years for Canada’s IRS called the CRA – Canada Revenue Agency. My audits covered a range of domestic and international tax areas including business income, value added tax, capital gains, international stock option/securities transactions, foreign passive income laws, residency for tax purposes and migration rules. In July 2014 I was admitted to the NY state bar. I provide in-depth tax research and analysis of complex and perplexing tax issues. As a tax auditor I routinely relied on CCH's tax service, (Wolters Kluwer) in my view the leading tax service but of course the ultimate responsibility for correctly applying the law rests with counsel. On a personal note, I have an ongoing interest in constitutional law and first amendment freedoms, homeschooling, in education/agriculture integration, sustainable living, health, building, and innovations in transportation, for example, VTOL aircraft.

  4. Mary Allen

    Mary Allen

    Juris Doctor

    United States

    Above all, I want to be a public servant. Throughout undergrad, I had several wonderful leadership opportunities and I continued to stay involved on campus and within my community as a law student. I discovered my affinity for criminal law during my 1L year of law school, after taking Professor Ray Diamond’s class. The reason I am so passionate about the criminal justice system is because it encompasses everything that I love: Constitutional Law, Civil Rights and Liberties, and Policy Reform. Over the course of my law school career, I have had the unique opportunity to work for both the Office of the Public Defender in Pensacola, Florida, and also for the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s Office in Southeast Louisiana. During my last semester of law school, I worked as a Student Attorney as part of the LSU Juvenile Defense Clinic. Additionally, I also worked as a research assistant for Professor Darlene Goring, focusing on immigration and elder law issues. Although I really enjoy the practice of criminal law, I have had several wonderful opportunities to work on civil issues as well. During the summer of 2014 while working in Washington, D.C. at the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs (HVAC), chaired by Rep. Jeff Miller, I was tasked with several intensive research projects, for both the Oversight & Investigation subcommittee and the Disability & Memorial Affairs subcommittee. During the fall semester of my 2L year, I worked for the Louisiana Department of Justice in the Special Litigation Division of the Attorney General’s Office. I went to law school because I have seen too many injustices during my short time on this earth. I am a firm believer in the sanctity of the Constitution because I realize that people all over the world are dying for the same protections that I have already been afforded. Because of this, I have made a vow to myself to be a voice for the voiceless. I want to be an advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves.

    I am a licensed and published attorney. I was the Technical Editor of the Law Review of Western State College of Law. I am on the Editorial Board of The Federal Lawyer magazine, a monthly publication of The Federal Bar Association. My legal writings have been published in the journals of the American Bar Association and byThe Federal Lawyer magazine. I have written thousands of law journal articles; law reviews; monographs; book chapters; memoranda; briefs; motions; and essays on legal issues. These have ranged from the legality of the presumption of intoxication in California, to the philosophical and legal wisdom of assisted suicide, to the convergence of regulatory reform in the European Union and how it has influenced reform efforts in the United States. Examples of recent work for clients on ODesk includes the following: Drafted a service contract and power of attorney for a public adjusting company. Gave guidance in collection of a debt for building a web site. Reviewed and rewrote a contract for real estate loan services. Mentored a businessman on possible arguments to make. Drafted Terms of Use, with particular emphasis on a "Disclaimer Clause", in connection with a Poker teaching website. With a background and education in Political Science and Criminal Justice, with degrees in both, and as a professional with a Master of Laws and a Juris Doctorate, I have written more scholarly pieces than just about anybody. This is combined with the thousands of narrative reports, manuals, letters, memos and other materials I prepared while employed in corporate America. With legal research and writing as my passion, I am available for consulting on questions of legal significance. As a published writer I can assist students and legal professionals at all levels with their editing and legal research needs. No job is too small or too big. I do work on this site for clients worldwide. Because of licensing requirements and to avoid any suggestion of unauthorized practice of law, no attorney-client relationship should be implied and none is suggested. While I will provide consulting services, recommendations and strategies, my work for you should not be considered to be legal advice. My English test score puts me at 13,757 of 611,299 test takers, or at the top 2% of all test takers.
