I am an experienced attorney seeking contract project-based positions. As an attorney, I have acquired excellent writing and editing skills, as well as substantial exposure to a wide range of civil matters while serving in the United States Navy, Judge Advocate General Corps, including but not limited to, health care, contracts, litigation, family law, consumer law, and estate planning. I believe that my broad knowledge base acquired over eight (8) years of practice differentiates me from other candidates. I draw upon that experience to look at legal issues from multiple angles, and have been able to quickly and effectively resolve those issues. I am seeking projects where I can fully utilize the skills and experiences I have acquired to date. Some of the key strengths I offer include: • Excellent research, writing, and analytical skills, together with extensive management and leadership experience. • Extensive experience representing, advising, and advocating on behalf of individuals independently on a wide variety of legal matters, managing offices and personnel, and working as the solo in-house counsel on behalf of Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. • Exceptional investigative proficiency with broad experience in interviewing clients and witnesses, discovering matters of evidentiary importance, working with law enforcement professionals and drafting complex investigative reports. • Able to develop strong relationships with clients and to work productively and collaboratively with a wide array of people. • Able to communicative complex concepts clearly and effectively, prioritize and organize tasks, pay attention to details, solve problems in creative ways, and balance a heavy workload while ensuring accuracy. I am confident that many of the experiences and skills I have acquired as a business professional will be readily transferable to any position, including being an effective and independent leader, accomplishing tasks ahead of schedule, and being able to learn new areas quickly.
