Greetings! I am Ansheline Mae A. Bacudio, a practicing Project and Litigation Lawyer. I am writing to express my interest in joining your network. I am currently the Legal Coordinator of Initiatives for Dialogue and Empowerment through Alternative Legal Services, Inc.

Being a lawyer, it has developed in me through practicean enthusiasm to provide legal services and a true passion in sharing my knowledge and skills to others. As such, it subsequently convinced me that being a tool for legal empowerment is one of my many callings. Thus, I wish to expand my knowledge, skills and commitment to excellence with the help from your wide network.
