    Designing and creating high-quality, stylistically pleasing, stable, functional, predictably formatted documents using the automated functionality features provided by the MS Word software, is what I do best. I have recently completed several MS Word formatting and template design projects through Upwork comprising: legal, financial and business documents; operations and technical manuals; training and course materials; all which were well suited to the numbering algorithms and other features provided by MS Word. I also have many years of experience working for the federal Justice Department typing, coding, tagging, formatting, proofreading and publishing legislation (draft bills, statutes and regulations) and other documents. Due to the high-profile nature of this work, I was required to produce quality work without errors prepared within short timeframes. Publishing for public accessibility was on paper, CD-ROM and the departmental website. I am from Canada and my native language is Canadian English so correct English spelling and grammar usage is quite natural for me. My knowledge and experience includes: - analyzing requirements and creating document formats and structures accordingly; - creating templates, style sheets and Definition Type Documents (DTDs) to enforce format and indexing specifications; - creating documents using different text editing, publishing and xml editing software: Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, Interleaf, Folio Views, Arbortext, Adobe Acrobat; - transcribe files using Express Scribe and InqScribe transcription software. I have a very good knowledge of legislative formats, structures and terminology. My performance evaluations frequently made positive reference to my dedication, commitment, reliability, conscientious attitude, persistence, efficiency, competence, creativity, perseverance, tactfulness, discretion, and attention to detail.

    Legal/academic/professional writer

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I have a J.D. and a B.A. For many years I worked as an appellate attorney, practicing in both state and federal courts. I also practiced in the areas of criminal defense, employment law, and personal injury litigation. For several years, I was a part-time law school instructor of legal research and writing. I also did some part-time editing for a legal publication. While I maintain a mailing address in the United States, a few years ago I took an early retirement and moved overseas to pursue a more relaxing lifestyle. For most of the year, I live on a tropical island in the South Pacific where I work as a freelance writer, editor, and legal analyst. Although I write fiction as a hobby, I supplement my income by doing a variety of contract writing and editing. Most of clients have law-related websites, for which I produce blog posts, informative articles, FAQs, eBooks, and landing pages. I also write or assist in the preparation of legal documents and briefs. In addition, I have done academic and professional ghostwriting, including preparation of academic papers, website articles, and political position papers. On occasion I edit books for self-published authors. Among ongoing projects, I have a contract to write summaries of administrative law decisions for a trade association website and I regularly produce blog posts and articles for law-related websites. Although legal research and analysis is a specialty, I have a broad academic background in English literature, politics, and social sciences. My book blog is popular and I was once a front page writer for a popular political blog. I am available for freelance assignments only.
