I recently graduated from the Mississippi College School of Law in June of 2012. I recently passed the February 2013 Tennessee BAR and have just been licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee. I have experience drafting legal documents from an externship position at the Mississippi AG's office while in law school. In addition, I have prepared numerous legal writing projects such as motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, appellate briefs, memornanda, and others. While not yet experienced as a licensed lawyer in the field of practice, the only way to gain such experience is through working upon passage of the BAR exam. I will bring hard work and dedication to any law firm or legal entity interested in my services. I have the necessary analytical and research skills to provide strong support to overworked attorneys and will be an asset to any employer seeking to hire a licensed attorney. I hope your law firm or legal organization will consider me when mining potential prospects for an attorney position. It would be a good decision as I am a qualified, licensed candidate looking to gain crucial experience in the legal field.
