    Legal Research Attorney and Writer. Published Legal Scholar.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    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.
