Law School and Legal Writing Coach

I am confident that with my assistance, students can find and be their best selves. My dedication is to ensuring my students "get it" and not just by the sharing of knowledge to get there, but motivation, memory and other similar skills that my many years of experience have taught me are effective. Everyone needs help understanding concepts and theories from time to time. Sometimes just having another person like me explain it differently, and in understandable language can make it all click ... [more]

Writing

In recent times, the art and skill of quality writing has been lost as a result of short hand communications via texting and email. Yet having proper writing skills in today's educational and business environment, is still crucial. Your writing reflects on who you are and who you are perceived to be by the outside world! I am a civil litigation attorney in practice for many years now. I write all the time--briefs, letters, motions, pleadings, memos and yes, even emails and texts! The writings, especially those presented to the court or others, must be persuasive and flawless. Legal writing is a little different; but the same basic skills in writing apply in all areas. I am sure I can help you improve your writing.


Proofreading

In recent times, the art and skill of quality writing has been lost as a result of short hand communications via texting and email. Yet having proper writing skills in today's educational and business environment, is still crucial. Your writing reflects on who you are and who you are perceived to be by the outside world! Sometimes great ideas are shared by the written word, but because those written words are misspelled, mis-punctuated, or presented with incorrect style or grammar, the strength of one's point is greatly diluted or disregarded entirely. As a civil litigation attorney for many years, and writing all the time--briefs, letters, motions, pleadings, memos and yes, even emails and texts--I can help you with proofreading to improve your written presentations!


Law

I am a skilled and experienced civil attorney in private practice, and am an active legal writer. (The law is one of the few remaining professions where flawless writing, and attention to detail is a requirement.) I am a volunteer temporary judge, an arbitrator and I tutor not only in substantive areas of the law, but also in legal writing skills, reading and proofreading as well as public speaking through litigation performance coaching--I have been a passionate Mock Trial coach of more than 25 high school students every Fall for many years now. Our team has gone to the countywide playoffs regularly, and has excelled in pre-competition tournaments--taking 1st place twice in the last three years. Let me help you make a grand impression when you present your legal work!


Bar Exam

For almost 30 years now I have been a practicing attorney, well versed in the legal requirements in the state of California. I was admitted to the Bar (taking the bar exam myself and passing on the first attempt.) I have remained in an active practice and have taught and trained many staff, and new attorneys. I have continued to teach and tutor college and law students preparing for the bar and related exams and believe I am qualified to add "bar exam" to my list of qualified subjects.
