For almost twenty years, I was a lawyer with a nationally known admiralty and personal injury firm, where I tried about forty cases in various courts and administrative agencies nationwide and handled all of the firm’s important legal and non-legal research, writing
, and editing
. I have probably written well in excess of five hundred motions, briefs, objections, and appeals in courts all around the country over the years.
As a result of research that I did for one of my firm’s cases, I became a national authority on a key issue in personal injury litigation: how, if at all, a plaintiff’s attorney should protect Medicare’s rights when settling the personal injury case of a client who is or may soon be entitled to Medicare benefits. I published my research in the Massachusetts Bar Association’s magazine, gave a speech
on the subject at the American Association of Justice's 2010 National Convention, and was ultimately asked to revise my article for AAJ’s magazine, Trial.
After more than twenty years of litigation, I left my firm to concentrate my legal work on what I do best: clear, concise, and convincing research and writing in all areas of pretrial procedure and substantive law
Because I have always enjoyed helping my firm's secretaries, paralegals, and law clerks with their legal and non-legal writing over the years, I recently volunteered with a local non-profit organization
tutoring community college level students in English
, and now would like to help law students and paralegal students with their legal research and writing. Whether in person, over the phone, or through email
, I can help you understand how to improve your legal research and writing skills.
