    Legal, Writing and Research Expert

    Australia - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 2

    I am an admitted Australian Lawyer* with Bachelor Degrees in Law and Arts (Political Science and History), a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and undertaking post-graduate research qualifications in Political Science. I have broad academic and work experience in criminal, civil, planning and environment, bankruptcy, human rights, industrial, immigration, administrative, native title and international trade law. I have also worked as an aide to the Attorney-General of Australia and am currently writing a dissertation/thesis in political science. My particular interests include American, Australian, Canadian and British law, history and politics. I am currently working on a series of articles comparing Australian and Canadian native title laws, which are to be published in a Canadian law journal. My extra-curricular interests are wide and varied. They include sport, history, literature and music (popular, classical, folk and independent). I am therefore happy to write about virtually any topic and can soon get a grasp of any field that I'm not conversant in. I am on oDesk in order to gain working capital for further study and to establish my own business as a barrister and advocate. I aim to please and gain a sense of satisfaction from delivering good work on time. *NB: I do not currently hold a practising certificate in Queensland nor do I hold professional indemnity insurance. I am therefore unable to engage in work that might be considered to be "legal practice" in any Australian jurisdiction.

    Nonprofit 501c3 Tax Exempt Status: Idea to Reality

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

    I am author of the Do Your Own Nonprofit 51-book state series and Nonprofit Touchdown: Winning the 501c3 Game Against IRS. Also founder of Pasture Valley Children Missions and Owner of Chalfant Eckert Publishing, a traditional publisher with hybrid qualities allowing authors to keep their rights and royalties while enjoying world-class publishing services. I can take your idea for a nonprofit organization, even if it is only an idea, and turn it into a reality quickly. The paperwork and process are intimidating, but not to me. Let me help you get it finished so you can get to the mission you are on to make the world a better place! I put my rates in at $50 an hour. For new U.S. nonprofits less than 27 months old with annual revenue this minute of less than $50,000 and assets less than $250,000, that hourly rate translates to 2 hours total for the state and federal paperwork. The exception is for schools, hospitals, churches. That paperwork is much more involved and will require a closer look and a conversation to come up with what is fair and gets the job done. In any case, I am fair, reasonable, know what I am doing, don't waste my time or yours, and provide quality work. Are you are writer? Want to know your actual publishing potential? Need a ghostwriter, content or developmental editor, copy editor or proofreader, publicist? Chalfant Eckert Publishing has them all at a fair price for GREAT work. Some of our authors have been publicized into Best Seller status and have made appearances on national syndicated talk shows. We are good at what we do, we have to be. I own the company and I won't settle for anything less! LOTS of references available upon request for nonprofit services and publishing, including attorneys. What are you waiting for? It is time to get started!
