R Scott Akin
About this pro
I telework to provide legal research and legal writing services. I also provide a full range of editorial services for businesses to individual clients, from simple bulletproofing, to comprehensive editing for content, organization, structure, tone and voice. I am also accomplished in publication design and comprehensive project management. Whether a single page blog, feature-length magazine article, scholarly or corporate white paper, annual corporate report, or magazine- or book-length project, I can help. Years of telework experience combined with experience in online collaboration tools promote efficiency and economy so I can deliver New York Times-level editing as a deep discount and maximum convenience. Convenient payment through PayPal, Google Wallet and other electronic systems.
