    Please help me revise the following translation, especially the underlined parts.


    siendo Doctor en derecho, desde hace 18 años ejerce la diplomacia, desempeñándose como cónsul de República Dominicana en New Orleans, Luisiana y de igual manera le corresponden las jurisdicciones de Mississippi, Alabama, Kansas, Tennessee y últimamente se le asignó el estado de Texas.


    My humble attempt:

    Hola, yo he encontrado la sigla JD (Juris Doctor) junto al nombre de los doctores en derecho (como "Enrique Thompson JD").

    Con respecto a tu traducción, tal vez diría: "Having completed his doctorate in law" or "having obtained his JD degree" pero no estoy segura, esperemos una versión de un angloparlante nativo.
    Suerte,
