O.C. Estate & Elder Law

Natasha Chipiga, Attorney at Law

“We developed a relationship with Kate that went far beyond content writing. A single assignment of writing a blog for our website has blossomed into a long-standing relationship. I have always believed in the power of words – so we decided to have Kate write the entire content for the new website for my law firm. We have a sense of trust and reliability towards Kate, and I think once you have this feeling for one particular service, you can easily attribute it to other services too.”

What was your business situation like before you began working with me?

Business was booming, but I was overwhelmed as I was doing all the content writing for our website myself.

What were you struggling with?

Time management – My husband and I are both attorneys and co-founders of our law firm. But we took time away from legal work to post informative content on our website.

How did your situation improve after working with me?

I saw a 1000 % improvement in my work schedule because Kate was able to provide me with informative, entertaining blogs and newsletters that I could post to my website (rather than me having to do it).

What did you like most about my work?

I have access to an expert writer that is reliable, can adhere to my schedule, and most of all…writes really, really well.

What would you tell someone who is considering hiring me?

Don’t even think twice.

Be Strong International

Michelle Shirley, CEO and Chief Heart Officer

“Before Kate, I had someone that was an excellent writer, but our contract with that consultant came to an end. I desperately needed to find a good copywriter to continue where the other consultant left off. I met Kate in a Business Networking International group and the rest is history! I love that I don’t have to worry about grammatical errors and I love the way she articulates our brand through each article and press release. I am so happy that we found her and she has been able to help us gain outside support for our organization because of how well she writes about our brand. I am very pleased and I am thankful that she also cares about the mission that she so eloquently writes about. Its a win-win for us!

What was your business or personal situation like before you began working with me?

I had a hard time trying to find someone that could help us with press releases and business articles. I wanted to be sure that we found a professional writer that understood our mission and could help us with great storytelling.

What were you struggling with? 

Struggled to find people that wrote well and knew how to communicate our message to our audience. In addition, I felt that people generally just didn’t write well and the grammar mistakes from consultants in the past really made me nervous about our professional brand persona.

How did your situation improve after working with me? 

I really appreciated the way Kate helped us tell our story. One of our press releases actually got picked up by a local news station and that felt really amazing!

What did you like most about my work? 

Great writing and concise when needed.

What would you tell someone who is considering hiring me? 

Hire Kate if you want someone to tell your story exceptionally well. She asks the right questions and she is a great writer. I appreciate the time and care that she puts into our press releases and articles.

Digital Marketing Client

“Working with Kate has been a dream! I’m the content director for a busy digital marketing agency specializing in SEO and content marketing. Before Kate, I was struggling with writers who were hit-or-miss. Sometimes great, other times submitting poorly written articles that required a lot of time-consuming editing on my part. 

“With Kate, everything comes back perfect, extremely well written and ready to publish, every time. She quickly grasps the nuances of the message we’re trying to convey and the audience we’re trying to reach. She’s able to write about a wide variety of topics and with very little input required from me. She has also seamlessly integrated into our in-house project management systems and software with no issues, which makes my job even easier. I now give Kate only my most important content assignments because I know I can trust her to get it right every time. 

“The only issue is I wish she could write even more for us, but alas, she has other clients too!”
