    Paralegal-Writer-Researcher

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

    While working within the legal environment I have managed projects, paralegals, and departments. Other experience includes working on mass litigation cases involving hundreds of clients as well as assisting the solo attorney grow their practice. In addition to managing cases and law offices, I have assisted in the training of first and second year lawyers in the practice of law. My writing experience consist of drafting legal pleadings ranging from complaints, trial briefs, appeals briefs, agreements, and other various and routine legal documents within the law office/department. These writings were utilized in bankruptcy, civil, criminal, administrative, governmental agency, and corporate law areas. Additional writing experience includes writing self-help legal articles in the areas of bankruptcy, civil, family, worker's comp, and tax law. My experience also includes working with individuals in preparing legal documents to present to the court, with or without an attorney. Additional experience includes document review for pre-litigation and discovery purposes, and legal research using LexisNexis and Westlaw to determine the viability of legal arguments. Once the document review and research was completed, I prepared motions and memorandum for the assigned attorney to review for submission to the respective court, whether federal or state. As a paralegal with such diverse attributes and skills, I can assist any person ranging from a law firm looking to outsource work, to the individual or business owner looking to lower their cost, as well as the solo attorney who needs to contract work to achieve their budgeted goals.

    Legal research, Article writing

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

    Thank you for taking an interest in my profile. I graduated law school in 2008 with a goal of becoming a civil litigator, possibly in family law, although I was very interested in criminal and immigration laws, too. I was willing to enter any legal discipline when I experienced a near fatal stroke that left me unable to walk or speak clearly. None of my memories or cognition were compromised. I am able to do anything online, but I cannot speak clearly over the telephone. If an employer prefers to speak with me over the phone I can talk, but regular phone contact with clients is not possible. I am willing to work through the night if you require a fast turnaround time, but ordinarily I require about three days depending on the complexity of the issue. Working at home is easiest for me because I cannot drive or do many of the other things that are required to work outside of the home. I have recently decided I have not just lost everything; I have a great education and mind and I owe it to myself to use it. Just because I cannot pace back and forth giving a closing statement does not mean I should do nothing. My dreams are less grand than they were before, I want to be proud of my work and I want my employers to be satisfied. I will work as hard as I can because I want to begin working as soon as possible and cultivate long term relationships where possible with employers. I have unrivaled honesty and integrity; I am very proud of those qualities so I will never submit work that I am not proud to call my own.

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8

    I have worked primarily as an assistant for over eight years, most of those years as a legal assistant, and I would love the opportunity to provide my outstanding skills and services to companies on a virtual platform. I have an abundance of experience creating Word documents, PowerPoint presentations and Excel spreadsheets. I have spent countless hours answering telephones, sending and responding to emails, overseeing schedules, contacting clients, managing extensive files, researching a multitude of topics, creating documents, and tending to the daily professional responsibilities of those I have worked for. My multitasking and time management skills are matched by no other. I am extremely conscious of deadlines. I am a team player but can also work well independently with little instruction. I know how to form excellent relationships with clients and take joy in knowing that clients can always count on me to be there when they need assistance. I am exceptionally organized and extremely detail-oriented. I can master any and all tasks given to me. I have superb communication skills and am fluent in both spoken and written English. I am honest, trustworthy and reliable. I understand the importance of time sensitive material and will handle all confidential information with the utmost integrity. My skills and experience would be nothing but an asset to a company. I look forward to being able to prove that!
