    I am a paralegal with over 26 years experience in several areas of the legal field (18 years as a bankruptcy paralegal and trustee paralegal). I hold a BS in Political Science in addition to my degree as a paralegal. I wrote content for a popular online site for over 6 years and wanted to branch out to reach other clients in need of someone with excellent writing skills. I would like to address my Job Success rate. I have finished each job assigned to me (as you can see I have an overall rating of 4.95 stars) but some of my clients did not end the contract when the job was complete. I ended those contracts, left positive feedback for the client, and requested feedback. However, those clients did not provide feedback (the jobs were 8 to 12 months ago). The jobs were completed and payment was received. If you view additional reviews, you will see comments from clients who took the time to leave feedback.
