****Please note: I will be taking a sabbatical from March 1, 2019 to September 1, 2019. I will not be accepting new projects during this time.****
I am a freelance attorney who works exclusively for other California-licensed attorneys providing legal research and writing services on a project-by-project basis. I am available to draft motions, oppositions, pleadings, legal research memoranda, discovery, and other documents.
I do not represent individual clients and work only for other California-licensed attorneys. Prior to beginning my career as a freelance attorney, I served for over three years as a judicial law clerk for a federal judge in San Diego, CA. While working for the court, I had to prepare draft orders ruling on whatever type of motion came through the door, so I needed to be a quick learner and expert researcher. I know what good briefing looks like, what bad briefing looks like, and what judges look for when ruling on motions.
After receiving nearly a full-ride scholarship to attend law school, I spent three years roughing the San Diego climate and beaches, eventually graduating in the top 5% of my class from California Western School of Law in December of 2011. I graduated law school a published author after my law review article, "Take the Money and Run: A Case for Benchmarking in the New Market Tax Credit Program," was published in California Western’s Law Review (47 Cal. W. L. Rev. 411). If you have trouble falling asleep at night, I can send . . .
