About Dawn


Bio

Hello. I can teach you how to learn in Law School. The most difficult part of law school is relearning how to learn in law school (i.e. how to learn when all anyone does is ask questions). There is a method to it, and I can teach you. If you are in an undergraduate pre-law, business or paralegal program, I have taught at the collegiate level as well.

Hello. I can teach you how to learn in Law School. The most difficult part of law school is relearning how to learn in law school (i.e. how to learn when all anyone does is ask questions). There is a method to it, and I can teach you. If you are in an undergraduate pre-law, business or paralegal program, I have taught at the collegiate level as well.

I graduated from magna cum laude Seton Hall (twenty plus years ago). During law school, I gave lectures in Property (I and II), Tax and Contracts (I and II); and privately tutored Bankruptcy, Civil and Criminal Procedure, Criminal Law and Torts. Since law school I have and continue to lecture or tutor the above, plus Family Law; advanced Bankruptcy (Reorganizations); Education Law, Business Law and other subjects.

I have taught legal writing (otherwise known as rewriting) and how to prepare and present arguments. Some of my students (including young associates) have struggled with ADD, Asperger’s, dyslexia and (one student) dysgraphia.

I have years of court experience and public speaking, and can help you with public speaking class assignments, including, how to research, select and narrow material, to frame and present topics and/or legal arguments, in a logical manner, and how to handle questions.

I am happy to work in person at a convenient location or virtually.

Criminal Justice

As a practicing attorney, I have represented both adults and minors criminal and quasi- criminal cases, including in excess of two dozen jury trials. In addition, I have served as defense counsel for parents' and law guardian to children in family court actions seeking the termination of parental rights, and as counsel to clients in civil commitment hearings. Representation in such matters required not only and understanding of the law and rules of evidence, but social and ecomomic issues such as how race, addiction (drug or other), mental illness and poverty impact access to and treatment within the legal system.
Public Speaking,

Public Speaking

Throughout my legal career I have presented out countless seminars and classes for continuing legal education classes. I am a lecturer for Garden State CLE (not to be confused with ICLE)and can be found on their website. In addition, as Acting Executive Director of the NJ Government Records Council I am tasked with providing seminars for attorneys, non-attorney government employees and the public. As Acting ED I present, on average, two to three times a month. I took both public speaking classes and classes which required oral presentations. I law school participated in moot court and again selected courses which required public speaking. After graduation I studied again by joining a Inn of Court. I successfully completed the course as a student and moved into the teaching positions referred to as barrister and master.

Test Preparation

Bar Exam

Bar Exam

I graduated, manga cum laude from Seton Hall University Law School in 1992 and passed the Pennsylvania and New Jersey bars that year. I scored so high on the multi state, I was admitted into PA bar on that score alone. As law student I was selected by several Professors (one of which is the current Dean) to lecture and teach several subjects, including property, which is notoriously one of the hardest bar subjects. After passing the bar I tutored students to prepare for the multi-state exam. My method was to review the subject and then go over practice questions. Not only did I go over and explain the incorrect answers I had the student explain to me the correct answer which the chose. I have continued tutoring students throughout my career.

Knolowgeable and patient

Dawn is a great tutor. She has a broad knowledge about the matter. She was explaining to me some rules applicable in bankruptcy. Additionally, we were resolving some problems about chapter 13. I recommend Dawn.

Great Tutor

Dawn is easy to work with and very knowledgeable. It's difficult to come prepared to address any subject, but when it comes to law, Dawn seems to be able to do this. I think she helped me to be better prepared for exams.
