   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. 

 

   Here is a sample of such a letter and a sample of a brief and its supporting reply

   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.
