About

Experienced legal researcher and writer

My area of expertise is legal research and writing. My area of practice included Special Education/Disability and Antitrust Law. My work experience includes researching and writing briefs, pleadings and legal memoranda.
I have worked on part-time online legal research projects for Guru and its predecessor for over 14 years.
Additionally, I worked as a temporary document review attorney on over twenty-two cases. I was responsible for attorney/client privilege review and issue relevance review in 100,000 plus documents cases.
I also reviewed documents and completed on site document productions for over ten years when I was employed as a paralegal and paralegal supervisor. In addition to supervising paralegals my duties included cite-checking and shepardizing legal memoranda and articles for publication
I served as a municipal judge of two towns one for five years and one for two years. I was required to perform my own legal research and cite checking because the budget could not support the employment of law clerks that could perform the required tasks.
In addition to my judicial and document review experience I have been employed as a law librarian, a Special Education attorney, an adjunct legal instructor, K-12 teacher and as the executive director of a legal assistance foundation. I also worked as the Los Angeles Times Editorial Library Clipping Supervisor and as a costumed docent at the West Virginia Independence Hall Museum.
I am a polyglot who enjoys learning new languages. I enjoy reading, religious studies, writing short plays, acting, singing and fencing.
My educational background includes a B.A. in Management from the University of Maryland, a M.A. in Legal Studies from Antioch University, a J.D. from David A. Clarke School of Law and a M.B.A. from Wheeling Jesuit University.
I am retired from the practice of law but I love legal research therefore, I complete
online projects and assist two local attorneys who hate legal research.
