How it works
- When a client contacts me, I discuss the nature of the project with the client.
- I send the client a simple contract for signature.
- I perform editing in Microsoft Word using the Track Changes feature. On completion, I return the document to the client, along with an invoice to be paid within 30 days.
- The client is responsible for the legal content of the document.
Legal writing is best when it uses plain and direct language and avoids legalese. I follow Bryan A. Garner’s guidance for legal writing, as found in The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style. For citations, I follow The Bluebook.
