WHEN IT'S A QUESTION OF LAW . . .
As you manage every other aspect of your clients' complex matters, you may find that comprehensive, in-depth legal research and concise, well-reasoned legal writing are just too labor intensive to take on yourself.
In some cases, it may simply be a matter of time—you're in the middle of a trial and need case law to support an evidentiary or substantive point; or you have to make or respond to a post-trial motion in a timely manner. In other instances, your decision whether to even take on a case depends on the answers to legal issues you've identified, and you need help finding those answers.
For these and a host of other reasons, attorneys seek out Lisa Solomon, Esq. Since 1996, Lisa has focused her practice exclusively on assisting attorneys with all of their legal research and writing needs, including preparing and arguing appeals and drafting substantive motions and trial memoranda. Lisa works in almost every area of law, teaming with her clients to determine the best strategy to apply to the unique facts and legal issues in each case.
A PROACTIVE AND PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO LEGAL ANALYSIS
When you are faced with a motion, appeal, or legal research issue, you need to know more than the black letter law—you need to know how that law applies to the unique facts of your case. Lisa never gives you a "canned" brief; all of her work is customized, to be of most use to the busy attorneys who use her services.
Lisa also takes a proactive approach to identifying legal issues beyond the scope of the original assignment that may be crucial to the ultimate success of the project, helping you to be the most effective advocate for your client.
SPECIALIZED EXPERTISE IN COMPUTERIZED LEGAL RESEARCH
As an educational specialist with Lexis-Nexis from 1995 to 1996, Lisa Solomon was able to finely hone her computerized research skills to an extent that is unique for attorneys in private practice. Additionally, Lisa worked as On-Line Research Manager for Legal Authorities Network, a company that provided legal research and writing services to corporations and law firms, from 1995 to 1997. During that time, she developed protocols for and performed cost-efficient legal research. As an attorney concentrating exclusively in legal research and writing since 1996, Lisa has continued to build and refine her computerized legal research skills. Of course, she also has experience with and access to a full range of “hard copy” materials.
Lisa's extensive background in legal research and writing lends her practice a distinct edge—not only to the scope and depth of her skills, but also to the efficiency with which she can complete any project. The cost-effectiveness of Lisa's approach is an added benefit to her clients.
CIVIL LITIGATION EXPERIENCE
Unlike many attorneys who concentrate in research and writing but have limited practical experience, Lisa also has general litigation experience. Lisa practiced as an associate from 1993 through 1995 for the New York City law firm of Wohl & Entwistle LLP, where she drafted documents for all phases of civil litigation including pleadings, discovery, motion practice and appeals, and participated in discovery and settlement conferences. Lisa also handles oral argument in connection with most of the New York appeals on which she works. This “real world” experience enables Lisa to quickly get to the heart of the issues in each case and to craft clear, concise and persuasive briefs.
