As a Senior Level Paralegal with nearly two decades of experience, I provide all aspects of professional and timely Paralegal Services to licensed attorneys and law firms. My paralegal services include, but are not limited to:
- Legal Research, Analysis, and Writing
- Document Preparation and Maintenance
- Litigation Support
- Contract Review
- and much more
Contact me if there is a paralegal service you need but don't see, or if you would like to see samples of my work.
Rates: $37.50 per hour for timely services and $45 per hour for expedited services, with a one-hour minimum.
Special note: I provide support to attorneys licensed to practice law in the United States who are in good standing with the state(s) in which they are licensed. All services provided are under the direction and supervision of licensed attorneys who are professionally responsible to their respective clients for the appropriate work product. I DO NOT PROVIDE PARALEGAL SUPPORT TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. I am not an attorney, and I am not trained, qualified, or allowed by law to give legal advice.
Combining my education, life experiences, and the many years in my profession as a paralegal, I am uniquely qualified to mediate most disputes, and at reasonable rates. My mediation services include:
- Family Mediation: All matters regarding family situations, from familial disagreements to marriage dissolution, including the resolution of issues of custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and property and debt division. In addition, step-family, non-traditional partnerships, prenuptial, cohabitation, parent-child, elder care, and adoption agreements can also be effectively mediated as can family business and estate disputes.
- Personal matters, such as between friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
- Labor and employment matters, such as claims of harassment and/or discrimination.
- Landlord-tenant disputes.
In all these cases, clarity and resolution can be achieved without the trauma and expense typically associated with the adversarial treatment of these disputes. Each party's interests are fully heard and honored, both in the mediation process and in the resulting agreement. Mediation allows the parties the opportunity to fairly, clearly, and creatively structure their future relations.
With over two decades of writing and editing experience, I am uniquely qualified as a copy-editor and proofreader as well.
Services for Legal Documents
Although editing and proofreading are two distinct performances, the two go hand-in-hand when it comes to legal work. For nearly two decades, I have been researching, analyzing, writing, reviewing, editing, and proofreading legal works: briefs, motions, articles, law reviews, books (including indexing), contracts, and case and legislative summaries. I edit and proofread for content, form, styling, grammar, spelling, punctuation, consistency, and citation format and verification. In the editing and proofreading process, I track changes for your approval and provide comments when appropriate. Although I verify content, I will not change the content without your approval.
For nearly a quarter century, I have also performed similar copy editing and proofreading services for web content, such as web pages and blog posts. I am also highly proficient with HTML.
Although I specialize in legal documents and web content, I perform similar copy editing and proofreading services in other fields as well, such as fiction and other non-fiction books and articles. I will surely inform you if something is outside of my area, such as mechanics or engineering.
