3) Please describe your ability to make effective oral presentations in a clear and concise manner.
Through an Oregon State Bar Public Honors Fellowship, I began delivering effective oral presentations by prosecuting both misdemeanor and civil case for the District Attorney s Office in Portland, Oregon. Taking this experience, I moved on to Metropolitan Public Defender Inc., where as a Law Clerk I applied my legal knowledge and dynamic oral communication skills toward representing misdemeanor and non-complex cases, including arraignments, pleas, legal motions, jury trials, and post-judgment hearings. In this capacity, I was highly effective in clearly, concisely and logically presenting statements of law, fact and arguments as well as advocating alternatives and leniency at sentence hearings. Further demonstrating my oral communication/presentation skills, I successfully negotiated with Deputy District Attorneys, prosecutors, probation officers, and judges for solutions-focused results.
