Legal Resume Revision & Writing Service

 Attorney resumes, Paralegal resumes, Law student resumes

A strong resume and cover letter are critical to getting job interviews, but much of the advice online (and by resume writing companies) isn’t targeted to legal resumes. As an experienced lawyer with years of hiring and interviewing experience, I have reviewed hundreds of legal resumes for lawyers, law students, and paralegals and written dozens of legal resumes. As a certified professional resume writer (CPRW) and active member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches, I stay on top of trends in resume writing and design, and I know what stands out and what blends in. I use that knowledge to create professional, impactful documents designed to support you in building the legal career of your dreams in just over a week’s time. 

Note: While some of my courses and trainings focus on young lawyers, I perform resume review and writing services for lawyers of varying seniority levels, positions, practice areas, and industries.


 Here’s how it works:


1. Schedule a free consultation call to discuss your current resume and career goals. Prefer to write your own resume? Sign up for the mark-up service (details below – does not include a consult call). 

2. If, after our chat, you want to move forward with my services, pay your invoice and submit your career questionnaire, which tells me a little bit more about your career and accomplishments.

3. I’ll get to work reviewing and revising your resume to highlight your achievements, make you shine, and ensure it is keyword optimized for your targeted job(s). I’ll also send you a cover letter template and samples you can review to draft a compelling cover letter to accompany your applications. I may reach out with questions during this time and will send your new resume in word format within 7 days of receipt of your completed questionnaire for regular orders and 2 business days for rush orders.

4. A 7-day revision period is included in your purchase. I want you to be satisfied, so for 7 days after I send you the document(s), you can request edits and revisions.

5. You will also get access to one of my three premium courses (Networking Made Easy, my online course designed to help you create a personalized networking plan to develop clients and get the legal job of your dreams, Survive & Thrive, my course for new lawyers looking to experience less stress and more success at work, or Managing As a Midlevel, my course to help midlevel lawyers excel during a typically challenging career period). ($99 value)
