I am a Canadian citizen who has been living and working in the Middle East for the past 8 years. I have several years' experience working in top international law firms here in the UAE as a legal assistant. I possess a Bachelor of Arts degree and paralegal certificate from well established universities in Canada, and am currently working on my MBA. I love to write and proofread as I am a detail oriented person. I have several years' experience assisting lawyers with high profile legal documents (editing, proofreading and checking formatting).
