Hi, I am Becky Rolland and owner of WRITER-PARALEGAL.COM. I am a paralegal with 25 years experience in bankruptcy law, real estate law and insurance defense (premise liability, asbestos, environmental, oil and gas and maritime).
I am also a writer and have written for businesses professionally since 2004 (articles, press releases, web content direct mail, success stories, presentations). My publications include numerous articles and educational materials regarding the paralegal profession, including the bankruptcy chapter in, LESSONS FROM THE TOP PARALEGAL EXPERTS: The 15 Most Successful Paralegals and What You Can Learn From Them by Carole Bruno (Thompson Delmar Learning, 2008).
I was raised by entrepreneurs on both sides of my family and have always been fascinated by small businesses and their story. While working as a freelance paralegal living in Boston, I wrote a monthly business column for a local newspapers and interviewed small business owners for a weekly feature in two publications and a talk show. I treasure this time because it provided me with opportunities to connect with the community and foster relationships. For the past 15 years, I served as a board member on several non-profit professional associations as well as volunteering for The Pro Bono Clinic. I take pride in being able to utilize my skills at networking to bring people with like interests together.
I started FREELANCE PARALEGAL SERVICES in 1997 while I was living in Boston. In 2002, I moved back to Louisiana and have worked full time in a law office while doing occasional freelance paralegal work. In 2009, I met several experienced certified paralegals that wanted to work as freelance paralegals. FREELANCE PARALEGAL SERVICES is not an employment or job placement agency. Each paralegal who is referred work by an attorney works as an independent contractor.
THE WRITE PLACE grew from networking as well. Originally, I started taking a few jobs writing to supplement my paralegal business but when I moved back to Louisiana, I met many small business owners who just needed a hand with their websites, press releases or newsletters. I am now in partnership with web designers, digital managers and media buyers, again working as independent contractors.
