Don't Agree With President Trump? File a Lawsuit

When it comes to President Donald Trump, Americans don’t agree on much. They can’t even agree on why they disagree.But a recent USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll found Trump’s supporters and detractors have one thing in common: a tendency to stick to their comfort zones, which either means they will back him even if he shoots somebody on Fifth Avenue, or they will loathe him for his outrageous behavior and personal scandals, even if the economy remains strong.

Recommendations

Subject matter expert + excellent writer

Jan has been a fantastic addition to our editorial team over the past three years. She is knowledgeable about many areas of law and willing to ideate and spin-off of topics we assign. Jan is always open to feedback and willing to make requested edits, adjusting her writing to match our brand style. Whether she's researching to bring an in-depth understanding of the topic to our readers or using her own experience to add a personal note, Jan is a skilled, reliable writer who enhances our brand.

Lindsey Dean, One Legal

Flexible, Timely and Self Starter

I've worked with Jan for many years and have found her very easy to work with. She needs very little guidance...I send her a topic or idea and she researches on her own. She also does a great job of linking to proper citations. Her work is interesting and well written and has helped our organic rankings tremendously. I also find her to be very flexible on timing - adjusting her schedule when we had urgent requests.

Jessica Paluch Hoerman, TorHoerman Law

Deadline-Oriented, Reliable Writer

I manage content for both local and global businesses and am blessed to collaborate with Jan on several accounts. She follows direction well, but can also take the lead on structure or substance when I need her to. She's deadline-oriented and has been a huge help to us and our clients. She gets my highest recommendation.

Ariane Guidry, SixEstate Communications

An excellent, reliable writer!

Jan is one of three writers who we decided to commission on a regular basis to write for our law website. She's a versatile and reliable writer who has written a variety of briefs for us, from advice content to long-form articles. She always meets deadlines (often getting work in early) and her pieces are always well-researched and engaging. She's also very personable and pleasant to interact with. Would highly recommend commissioning her!
