Short-term attorney job in Chicago

I have a temporary project that must be completed by either a law clerk or a licensed attorney. You must have been on law review, have excellent legal writing skills, and have prior experience in civil and commercial litigation in the Chicago area working for a law firm as a law clerk or attorney. I am looking for somebody ASAP to work on the following projects:
--Assist me in drafting answers, complaints, discovery, etc. to help me get my case files caught up and organized;
--To begin to develop my forms in the areas of civil and commercial litigation, which are organized in a concise way. This document will essentially become a "how to" training manual for my law firm;
--To work with me this Saturday and have the work completed within a three (3) to five (5) day period;
--This position is a temporary position and will be utilized on a "as needed basis". If you are an attorney, this is essentially law clerk/drafting position and I am not looking to get you or me conflicted out on a particular case(s).

You must travel to my office off of Wacker Street in downtown Chicago on Saturday morning to get this assignment and 1/2 pay. The other 1/2 pay will be given to you upon completion of the assignment (in three to five days). This position is a virtual position and likely will continue with drafting of a "how to" manual for civil and commercial litigation being a huge priority. Do not apply if you cannot continue working this job virtually and on a project basis for the next 4 to 6 weeks at least. It is okay if you have or accept another employment position. This is a after hours position where you can do the work whenever is good for you (for the most part). Email me your cover letter and resume. Be prepared for a quick interview within 24 hours.

Compensation: $20 per hour with 10 hours budgeted time
