For the past 9 nine years, I successfully pursued multiple degrees pertaining to the legal profession. I received my Bachelor's degree with a major in political science and a minor in criminal justice. Shortly thereafter, I received an Associates degree from in Paralegal Studies. Finally, and most noteworthy, in August 2011, I received a Masters in Paralegal Studies from George Washington University wherein I obtained critical legal research and writing skills.

All of the above referenced educational experience included heavy emphasis on developing a high standard of reading comprehension and writing skills. As a result, I have extensive experience with researching and preparing papers in a wide range of levels at the college level. I developed important organizational and outlining skills critical to preparing high level writing pieces. Specifically, the Master’s program taught me the key processes for legal research and writing necessary in the legal profession. Therefore, my extensive educational experience ranges from English writing and reading comprehension development at all levels of the undergraduate level to the graduate level.

In addition, I have worked as a Legal Assistant/Paralegal in law firms for approximately 7 years. Most of my experience is in civil litigation with regard to personal injury cases. I work on multiple files on a day-to-day basis and have extensive experience with civil litigation files, including, but not limited to obtaining discovery materials, drafting pleadings, preparing trial subpoenas, medical chronologies, deposition summaries, trial notebooks, etc. Being able to share my knowledge and experience with other paralegal students will be a rewarding experience.

English

Development of writing skills by a student tends to focus around organization of the thought process and application to the information presented. I have extensive experience preparing papers under strict guidelines and deadlines. The final paper(s) present a concise and thorough analysis based on the facts and issue in a given situation.

Writing

My Master's degree specifically pertains to legal research and writing. The program involved composing two to three papers a week under strict guidelines. As a result, each paper represented a clear, concise and thorough analysis of the issue(s) presented.
