How it works
Clear and error-free language enables readers to focus on the substance of a document. Writing is strongest when it is concise and avoids jargon. I normally flag for the client any sections of writing that are confusing, redundant, or unpersuasive, and I can offer suggestions for improved phrasing and organization.
I follow The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style and The Bluebook for legal editing assignments, unless a client directs otherwise. For non-legal editing, I’m highly familiar with the Chicago Manual on Style and AP Style, but I can also follow other styles at a client’s request.
I’ve been licensed to practice law in Colorado since 2006. I edit all manner of legal and policy documents: briefs, memos, workplace investigation reports, expert witness reports, law review articles, website copy, public policy reports, and more.
