Post your legal research project on Upwork and find professional legal researchers who can search through relevant sources of law, legislation and legal documentation to support your court case. These experienced assistants can search for patents and trademarks among legal research websites and databases; provide you with a different legal research methodology or law practice management software; and gather information about your case, from product history and origins to medical tests and sales statistics. You will also find intellectual property experts who can perform competitive research and determine whether patent, trademark, or copyright infringement has been committed against your company or website.

Legal research refers to the task of finding and gathering information necessary to support a legal case. On Upwork, the world’s largest online workplace, lawyers and law firms hire talented legal researchers and assistants — who may have professional experience in corporate law, criminal law or patent law — to conduct thorough legal research about workplace policies, consumer rights, or specific regulations. They can also draft legal documents, write detailed reports, or prepare presentations — including case studies, statutes, law reviews, or reviewing ethic and moral aspects of a subject.

    I am a licensed attorney (Iowa & Florida) with over ten years of legal research and writing experience, graduated in the top 10% of my law school class, was Captain of Drake University Law School’s National Moot Court Team, and earned my MBA while completing law school. I've been self-employed as a Freelance Law Clerk for the past six years. Prior to this position, I practiced healthcare and corporate law for two years in Florida. I left my law firm to accommodate my husband's career. I work with clients nationwide in a variety of practice areas, including: medical malpractice, personal injury, health care compliance, corporate transactional, ERISA, family law, bankruptcy, and general business litigation. I am also experienced at drafting and editing complex legal documents, such as pre-trial motions, supporting memoranda, client opinion letters, appellate briefs, and various transactional agreements. Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working for the legal and compliance departments at a major national Professional Employer Organization – my primary responsibilities in this role are to review the PEO’s contracts and policies to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations and to modify the PEO’s contracts, policies, and agreements to bring them into compliance. I was also tasked with overhauling the PEO’s master service agreement – the agreement that is used with every PEO client – a project that required more than 50 hours of detailed and complex contract drafting.
