I was a trial lawyer in Arizona and Oregon for 25 years. I represented doctors, lawyers, banks, insurance companies, criminal defendants, businesses, and governmental agents and agencies. In 2011 I became an independent contractor writing for other trial lawyers.
Lawyers hire me to get good, timely legal briefs and analyses, while they focus on other litigation matters. I charge $75.00 per hour.
Generally my lawyer-clients ask that I write the sort of pleadings, motions, and appeals I wrote as a trial lawyer. A few times they have asked that I provide only a written legal analysis. I also write letters to induce a favorable settlement or to avoid litigation.
With the brief to the court, I generally provide further analyses that I would not put in the trial brief. I might, for example, suggest discovery, warn of troublesome case language, anticipate opposing arguments, or propose responsive arguments for a reply brief.
I usually send my work as an email attachment. This convenience allows you or your secretary to modify the document.
