Mary Wenzel - BioMany of my clients ask me how I became involved in this line of work. The shortest answer is that I have always wanted to write professionally. I earned my B.A. in Creative Writing from the University of California, San Diego and loved every minute of my education. I originally wanted to pursue writing professionally but was essentially told there was no way to make a living writing.

During my final year at UCSD I worked full-time for a law firm in San Diego, Iler & Iler LLP, as a secretary. I loved the people I worked with and loved our clients. Inspired by the work my bosses were doing, I decided to pursue a career in law, confident that those four years of night school would be well spent. Working full time and taking classes at night was challenging and “the dinner of champions” (a Diet Dr. Pepper and a Snickers bar) was my go-to dinner. I graduated from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in May 2010 and was eager to start my career as a litigator. Unfortunately, the California Bar had other plans. After three attempts and a final near-miss coming up 5 points short of a passing score, it became clear that my path was somewhere else.

In 2012, after 7 ½ years,  it was time to move on from Iler & Iler, LLP. I took my legal education in a different direction by taking a sales job for a local Mass Tort lead generation company. That was an experience I will never forget. I made some really wonderful connections with attorneys throughout the country handling some of the highest stakes civil cases imaginable. Ultimately, while the job was not the right fit and that business relationship soon ended, I used that experience to my advantage in creating Prosperity Compositions.

Through Prosperity Compositions I offered freelance writing services to businesses across the U.S., I’ve had the opportunity to create a wide variety of written materials for different companies, from law firm blogs to frozen yogurt machine manufacturer website content. I enjoyed all the different types of writing I was able to do, but after less than a year running Prosperity Compositions, I decided to focus exclusively on legal ghostwriting.

Write Law is the result of the work that has been accomplished and the lessons that I’ve learned at Prosperity Compositions. Now that my business is geared specifically towards law firms, I take great pride in providing the highest quality content available to law firms throughout the United States.
