About me

Leveraging more than 25 years' experience in the law and an in-depth knowledge of the legal research process, I provide high quality, cost-effective legal research and writing to attorneys on a freelance / contract basis. I work with attorneys to develop and present winning arguments. I have extensive experience drafting briefs, pleadings, motions and memoranda in diverse areas of state and federal law, from personal injury, family law and real estate disputes to complex business litigation, employment law and banking regulation, among others. My articles have been published in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, Lawyers Weekly USA, the Journal of the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, Banker & Tradesman, and the Boston Real Estate Journal.
