Freelance Law Firm
1983 - 1986
Actually, I'm a Jersey girl, even though I've lived half my life in California. I have also lived in my three favorite places -- New York City, Los Angeles and Kauai, which makes me different from your average Jersey girl. I now hang my hat in Santa Cruz, CA, a small community of enterprising and creative professionals who enjoy the culture and the beauty of the Central Coast.
Professionally, my 22 years of experience in real estate and business law is a unique blend of traditional firm practice (litigation and transactional), business and real estate entrepreneurship and commercial lease management. My strength and passion is legal research and drafting, including pleadings and motions, pre-trial and trial documents, business formation documents, purchase and sale agreements, contracts, real estate agreements, residential and commercial leases, landlord-tenant forms and other related documents.
I am relentless in my research, creative in my thinking, talented in the art of written persuasion and a perfectionist in my composition. I bring to the practice not just a solid foundation in legal analysis and writing, but also a practical perspective in drafting transactional documents that facilitates ways to get around objections to language and ease of understanding, all leading to positive outcomes.
Freelance Law Firm was founded to serve as an experienced and reliable resource for lawyers and law firms who find themselves without the resources to take on new business or respond to matters needing immediate attention, and to in-house counsel faced with a temporary overload of projects.
The firm's mission is to provide real estate and business firms or practitioners and in-house counsel with cost-effective, time-saving, high quality legal services so they can increase their billings without increasing their overhead.
