I’ve been paid to write since graduating from law school in 2006. I work in advertising and I write nonfiction. Having been schooled in “The Law,” I got into legal marketing as an interesting and creative way to pay the bills. Having been schooled in reading & writing by doing lots of it, I’ve written some decent nonfiction for Lawyerist, a leading online magazine about law practice.
ADVERTISING: CONTENT STRATEGY, CONTENT MARKETING, COPYWRITING
In advertising, I am a content strategist and copywriter with 7+ years of experience. My clients include the Los Angeles firm Girardi Keese, of Erin Brockovich fame, and other top lawyers of the kind who attend prestigious programs like the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College.
My goal is simple: to make great ads. And, by extension, help my clients achieve their business goals.
As a nonfiction writer, I’ve written stories about a lawyer who came back from cocaine addiction, the world of litigating against the NSA in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, and the legal/physical conundrum of being transgender in the U.S. Army.
I’ve also interviewed L.A.’s dopest lawyer Alison Margolin, the author of the well-regarded blog Simple Justice (Scott Greenfield) on taking baby lawyers to school, and mindfulness advocate Jeena Cho on Zen lawyering, among others.
