  1. Mark Shipowick

    Mark Shipowick

    Tax, business and immigration attorney.

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

    I began my career as a legal intern at Cunningham Swan in Kingston, Canada in 1989 then practiced under senior attorney Doran R. Henderson before founding the Shipowick law office in 1992. My practice included business, insurance, and mortgage litigation, criminal appeals and a variety of administrative tribunal work. In 1997 I transitioned to the Canadian federal government working as a business adviser and tax auditor for ten years for Canada’s IRS called the CRA – Canada Revenue Agency. My audits covered a range of domestic and international tax areas including business income, value added tax, capital gains, international stock option/securities transactions, foreign passive income laws, residency for tax purposes and migration rules. In July 2014 I was admitted to the NY state bar. I provide in-depth tax research and analysis of complex and perplexing tax issues. As a tax auditor I routinely relied on CCH's tax service, (Wolters Kluwer) in my view the leading tax service but of course the ultimate responsibility for correctly applying the law rests with counsel. On a personal note, I have an ongoing interest in constitutional law and first amendment freedoms, homeschooling, in education/agriculture integration, sustainable living, health, building, and innovations in transportation, for example, VTOL aircraft.

These writings were utilized in bankruptcy, civil, criminal, administrative, governmental agency, and corporate law areas. Additional writing experience includes writing self-help legal articles in the areas of bankruptcy, civil, family, worker's comp, and tax law. My experience also includes working with individuals in preparing legal documents to present to the court, with or without an attorney. Additional experience includes document review for pre-litigation and discovery purposes, and legal research using LexisNexis and Westlaw to determine the viability of legal arguments. Once the document review and research was completed, I prepared motions and memorandum for the assigned attorney to review for submission to the respective court, whether federal or state. As a paralegal with such diverse attributes and skills, I can assist any person ranging from a law firm looking to outsource work, to the individual or business owner looking to lower their cost, as well as the solo attorney who needs to contract work to achieve their budgeted goals.

    Legal research, Article writing

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - 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.
