In that time he has had clients in contract disputes, family law matters, workers compensation claims, bankruptcies, personal injury claims, estate planning, and many other areas of the law. He regularly drafts every type of document needed in the practice of law. These include letters to clients and other attorneys, discovery, motions, briefs, direct mailings, emails, contracts, wills, trusts, and other types of documents.

Projects by SEO Skill

Kristopher is an excellent designer of title/meta descriptions as he has a long history of online research, shopping, and browsing experience. With this history, he is able to determine the best SEO terms to help people find your organization. By determining what terms users enter when searching for information, items, or organizations, Kristopher can determine which SEO titles and meta descriptions will bring the most people to your site.

Projects by Asset Type
Direct Mail

Over the years, Kristopher has created a number of direct mailing advertisements to solicit new clients. For each such project, Kristopher tailored the language, style, and vocabulary of the direct mailing to match the target audience. When drafting direct mailing to business enterprises, for example, Kristopher assumed a higher level of business sophistication, higher educational level, higher socioeconomic class, and larger vocabulary than would be used for targeting potential workers' compensation claims clients. He then drafted the direct mailing to match the likely business client. By considering these factors and drafting direct mailings to match these factors, my direct mailings brought in many new clients.

Speech

Kristopher has written many speeches on many different topics and for many different venues. He has not only done many presentations himself, both in his professional and personal capacities, but he has also written and edited speeches for others. For each such occasion, Kristopher has researched the relevant subject matter, found sources, and written the speech based on the research done. Further, as a litigator, Kristopher must craft opening and closing arguments for each trial, speeches based on legal precedent applied to the facts of each individual case, and deliver these speeches in a persuasive style to convince judge or jury to rule in favor of his client. He has given presentations to various bar associations promoting the his state's Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program, as well as new developments on the law.

Newsletter Content

Kristopher has written newsletter content for several different clubs over the years. These articles were for clubs of which he was a member and covered content of interest to the clubs. His most recent newsletter submission is for his beekeeping club and concerns the coming spring nectar flow and how to manage honey bees during the early spring. He has written for church bulletins, high school band newsletters, and other local organization newsletters.

Projects By Expertise
Legal/Paralegal

As a practicing attorney, Kristopher drafts legal documents nearly every day. Whether it is a letter to opposing counsel, pleadings, discovery, briefs, or other documents, most days will find him working on a legal writing project. Unlike many, Kristopher enjoys writing legal briefs and the research that goes into them. For him, brief writing is a seeking game in which he is searching for the controlling precedent on any issue. Finding the controlling case opinion feels to him like he has just solved a mystery.

Projects by Writing Style
Authoritative

In nearly every legal matter, specialized writing is a requirement. Kristopher has drafted hundreds of pleadings, briefs, bankruptcy plans, estate planning documents, contracts, wills, trusts, deeds, opinion letters, and other legal documents. While he does perform at least 40 hours of pro bono work each year, the vast majority of his legal writing has been paid projects for clients.

Conversational

Kristopher has spent years writing in the conversational style. As an attorney, he spends at least some time each day writing letters, many of these are conversational as their purpose is to inform or ask for information. Others are written as advertisements or to retain current clients. In most situations, Kristopher prefers to use a conversational tone as people are more likely to remember what is written in this tone.

Humorous

Kristopher enjoys writing humorous essays and articles. He loves to bring joy to the people around him, and writing humorous items is one of his favorite ways to do so. Often, his humor is spread in the form of emails and texts, although he does write the occasional blog post or essay with the intent of injecting humor into the often serious parts of life. He has a way of using the written word to ease the intensity of serious or painful parts of life that often would have been much harder to bear without the funny remark or observation that Kristopher sent.

Journalistic

Kristopher often has to write reports for work in which he must relate the details of who, what, why, where, and how. These reports are the dry facts but must be written in such a way as to keep the reader's interest. While this is usually quite easy to do in criminal matters, it is more difficult when it comes to relating such things as how two businesses interpreted the same government regulation in opposition to how a government regulatory agency interpreted the same regulation. Kristopher is easily able to relate the facts in a way that is clear and maintains reader interest.

Projects by Company Size
Small Business

Kristopher has always worked for small businesses and law firms with fewer than 5 attorneys. He enjoys the camaraderie of working in smaller, close knit groups. He enjoys not only the closeness of those working with him but also the ease of sharing advice, research, and work plans. Further, in a smaller firm, he has had the opportunity to practice in a many areas of the law, rather than being confined to only a few.
