I am currently a graduate student at the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations, in the Master of Human Resources program. I am seeking a position where I can contribute in a leadership role in human resources at a corporate or nonprofit entity.

My specific area of expertise in human resources management is in issues related to disability accommodations. I am an attorney, with twenty years of experience in providing legal and advocacy services for people with disabilities. I have represented clients in federal, state, and administrative law courts. I have considerable experience in both litigation and appellate practice. I am a member of the State Bar of New Jersey and am licensed to practice in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.

I have written four law review articles on disability law and am a nationally-recognized speaker and presenter on civil rights issues, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, and electronic access for people with disabilities.

I have considerable skills in legal writing and legal research. I am an expert user of Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint. I served as the program manager for the New Jersey Assistive Technology Act program, and was responsible for federal data collection and contract management. I have extensive experience in grant funding, both in managing grant programs and in applying for federal and state grants.

I have lived in Central New Jersey for ten years and am looking for a position in Somerset County or neighboring counties. I am married, with twin daughters. I have published three books and have had several pieces of short fiction published inĀ McSweeney’s Internet Tendency.

I am happy to discuss the possibility of future employment in human resources. Please feel free to contact me at curtisedmonds@gmail.com.
