TORT TALK PRACTICE TIP


TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR WRITING

Good legal writers take pride in their writing, care about their end product, and desire that the position put forth in the writing be accepted.   If the writer lacks any of these feelings about the written task before them, it will surely be evidenced in the writing.

In other words, if you don’t care about your written product, why should anyone else care to read it.

So break out that red pen and edit your writings and then re-edit them.  Then re-edit.  

Taking pride in your written submissions will naturally result in a better letter, or a more compelling brief that is free from errors and cohesive in presentation.  

Taking pride in your writing might even be the difference between winning or losing on the issue presented.
