One Response to Freelance Legal Web Content Writer

    Just a quick question. I am an experienced legal blog and web writer with countless pages published over a span of at least seven years. This is a third career for me. I do not have a JD or a BA but if I did, I would have earned it decades ago. Would I be wasting my time applying as a writer even though I have a proven track record?

    Thanks for your time,
