With 6 years as a practicing attorney, and 20 years as a law librarian, I have the legal background to understand your project and provide the kind of index your audience expects. I started indexing in 2005, and my work has included legal newsletters, deskbooks, practice guides, textbooks, and general audience legal books. I’ve been an officer of the ASI Legal Indexing Special Interest Group from inception in 2006 until 2011, and 2016-present, and also an officer and committee member of my regional indexing chapter for years. In addition to legal indexing, I also index social sciences, education, political science, business, and other topics. Please let me know how I can help you with your project.
