Legal research, Article writing

United States - 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.
