   Who is ‘Jim’ Stevens
Born in Youngstown, Ohio in mid-1941 to Herbert E. Stevens and Helen Elizabeth Dunkle-Stevens.
    Graduated from Chaney High School in June of 1959. In July of 1959 Jim was on Paris Island,
    SC as a boot Marine. Following boot camp and ITR at Camp Lejeune, NC his first assignment was
    Guantanamo Bay Cuba. The time in Cuba also covered the Bay of Pigs Invasion in April of 1961.
    Following 18 months in Cuba came Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines at Camp Lejeune, NC.
    With this assignment, a 6 month Mediterranean Cruise was part of the journey. Also, a training
    period in South East Asia of 100 days. Jim was part of the Sept 1962 Cuban Blockade, with
    almost 2 months aboard a converted WWII aircraft carrier, the LPH 4 USS Boxer, that served
    as a Landing Personal Helicopter assault ship carrying a battalion of Marines and 62 helicopters.

After 4 years on active duty with the United States Marine Corps, Jim returned to Youngstown were
    he participated with the reserves for 2 years and went to Youngstown University. He worked in
    the mill midnight turn and school during the day. However, Jim had gotten married and children
    came along. There are 3 wonderful and very successful off spring that he is very proud of. Now
    4 grandchildren that he is just as proud of.

To better provide for his children, when the mill closed due to a strike, Jim went to work for McLean
    Trucking Co. as a line haul driver to wait out the strike. In 1986 the trucking company went
    bankrupt, almost 16 years had past. Now there were no children at home all were in colleges.
    Jim moved to Florida, went back to school and worked for Gene Fogarty of Fogarty Van Lines of
    Tampa. Then in 1992 having met an attorney that needed help with teaching his staff
    Wordperfect 5.1, Jim went to work for him part time. Then it all started with the legal end of
    Jim’s life. See ‘Experience’ for a continuation of his life.

   Objective
An experienced senior citizen offers more to a firm then any other. No benefits required,
   no paid vacation or personal days and just because of the amount of experience, it does
   not mean that the income has to be out of sight – reasonable.

I retired 3 years ago and miss the contribution I have to offer. My wish is not to work full
    time, as I do enjoy the leisure part of retirement. Part time is what I would like.

To be a contributing team member where my abilities and experience in the legal
   assistance area can be a significant factor.

Throughout my career I have been known as a quick learner, self-starter, and a dedicated
   worker. I have demonstrated my ability to handle a variety of tasks effectively and
   deliver on deadlines. Although I work well independently, I am equally comfortable
   working as part of a team.

My areas of expertise are debtor/creditor bankruptcy, debt collections (in accordance
   w/Fair Debt Collections Practices Act), and divorce.
