I am a native English speaker with expertise in French and Spanish. I hold a law degree from the University of Michigan Law School and am a member of the California Bar -- the organization for lawyers in that US state. I practiced law for several years and am comfortable with the language of US courts, both state and federal. In addition to my law degree, I hold advanced degrees in Classics and Philosophy. My background in all these writing-intensive fields has developed my ear for clear, natural English prose. My services at present include translation from French or Spanish into English and the proofreading of such translations. I can also proofread translations from English into French or Spanish. While I am relatively new to the field of translation, I bring a solid work ethic and a commitment to client service. I also bring a passion for words. I look forward to helping you find the right ones.
