I am fairly new to oDesk.com, but please don't pass me by. I have a sincere interest in law, as evidenced by my experience outlined below, and am looking for projects where I can gain as much experience as possible in research and various other aspects of representing the best interests of others. I would like to work with an attorney who will provide me constructive criticism to help me learn and grow while I help your cases proceed through the Halls of Justice. I am hard working and headstrong, and I know I can become an essential asset to your team.
I have 5+ years experience working in Family Law, Criminal Law, and general Civil Litigation. My duties have included researching and writing briefs and memorandums of law, drafting pleadings, correspondence with attorneys, judges, and clients, as well as preparing attorneys for court. I have docketing experience, am highly organized, and pay close attention to detail when it comes to keeping on top of upcoming hearings, conferences, depositions, and other case-related events. I have experience in analyzing and preparing marital asset and debt charts, preparing and monitoring discovery, as well as performing eDiscovery tasks. I have experience in case law and statutory research via WestLaw, and InCite (LexisNexis). I also have experience in legal fee collections and asset tracing. Prior to becoming a paralegal, I had worked over 10 years as a freelance transcriptionist in the legal, medical, and general business fields. I can type 89 wpm with 99% accuracy and always provide 100% guaranteed proofed and edited documents. Also, I am bilingual in English and Spanish and have experience translating and interpreting in the legal and medical fields.
