Work Experience:
Private Company, Consultant
Accomplishments: With All Counties Delivery, I engage in a number of practice areas relevant to the Assistant General Counsel position, namely, employment policies and training; contractual matters; regulatory issues; and collection efforts. In the last three quarters, I aided the company in reducing expenses, streamlining business processes, and maximizing revenue. In that time, I produced an employee manual and updated the company’s employment, vendor, and service agreements. As part of implementing a targeted marketing campaign, I introduced a process where the company became a viable competitor for governmental bids, and successfully facilitated several RFPs.

Significantly, I have been assisting the principals to prepare the company for sale as they contemplate retirement. The goal was to make this courier company more attractive for purchase within two years. This objective was reached far sooner than anticipated, as the company has been acquired by way of merger by a larger entity. As such, I was afforded the opportunity to lead the due diligence process, as well as preparing and reviewing the necessary contracts related to the merger. Additionally, I have been asked to oversee a number of items during the merger’s transition phase, including but not limited to transferring employees from one company to the other, training employees, reviewing financial reports, and initiating a rebranding campaign.


Sherinian Law, Attorney
Accomplishments: I practiced at a small intellectual property and commercial litigation firm, both in federal court and state court (in Cook, Lake, and DuPage counties). In this position, I worked on four large litigation matters, involving extensive discovery and engaging in motion practice. I further worked on some smaller cases, involving copyright and trademark litigation. In this role, I refined my courtroom demeanor and presence as an advocate. At this firm, there was also a great deal of transactional work, including preparing and reviewing contracts, and preparing and filing patent, copyright, and trademark applications. Importantly, I became quite adept in multitasking, prioritizing assignments, delegating tasks, and consensus building.

United States District Court, Law Clerk
Accomplishments: As a law clerk for Judge LaRue, I provided legal research and advice on a vast array of substantive legal matters, as well as pretrial and discovery matters. I drafted proposed orders, opinions, and reports and recommendations for the Judge’s review on a wide range of subject matter. My Judge had a heavy docket, and we resolved matters quickly and efficiently before turning to the next matter. In this role, I had the opportunity to further hone my legal research and writing skills, particularly in federal practice areas involving intellectual property, employment law, governmental and administrative matters, education law, constitutional issues, and freedom of information act requests. Before her appointment to the bench, Judge LaRue was a plaintiffs’ attorney, focusing on employment law. She has been a frequent lecturer on that subject, and I assisted her in preparing several presentations on various aspects of employment law. In that regard, I have been fortunate to receive valuable legal education from a true expert in that area of the law.

Michigan Court of Appeals, Research Attorney
Accomplishments: From November 2006 to May 2011, I served as a research attorney for the Michigan Court of Appeals. In that role, I prepared research reports for the appellate judges on civil, administrative, and criminal appeals. During my tenure, I worked on more than 200 appeals, half of which involved civil or administrative matters. I worked on a diverse range of subject matter, including but not limited to contractual disputes, class actions, family law, employment litigation, malpractice cases, negligence, property disputes, UCC cases, and tax matters, as well as a host of criminal, constitutional, and evidentiary issues. In this capacity, I developed excellent legal research and writing skills while working under tight deadlines. In performing my duties, I reviewed the parties’ appellate briefs, delved into the lower court records, conducted legal research, and prepared research reports. My research reports provided objective statements of facts, extensive legal discussions of the issues on appeal, treatment of the parties’ arguments, and recommended dispositions. My exposure to a great deal of legal subject matter was one of the key reasons Judge LaRue hired me when she was appointed to the bench.

Accenture, Senior Analyst
Accomplishments: Before law school, I worked in the creative services field, as a writer, editor, and graphic designer. In this deadline oriented field, I learned how to address frequent crisis situations, collaborate with overly stressed colleagues, and effectively manage the expectations of demanding bosses, clients, and customers. Notably, I spent four years with the former Andersen Consulting as a senior analyst, specializing in print and multimedia design. I also gained significant experience working in the communications departments of the Chicago Yacht Club (as director), and Union League Club (as editorial associate). One of my first jobs was as a jack-of-all trades at a startup design company that produced a free monthly Chicago sports paper. I also had the opportunity to participate on local and national political campaigns as a writer and Internet specialist. In this field, I became a quick study in terms of software applications, and I gained extensive experience with Microsoft applications, as well Adobe products.
