What is good legal writing?

  • Impress the judge?
  • Confuse the opponent?
  • Or ... win your case?


Your goal is: make a winning record!

Too many pro se litigants miss this point.

Any words not making a winning record must go!

Learn to write with punch, power, and persuasive effect.

Legal writing is NOT story-telling!

Any fact not "relevant" and any law not "controlling" must be eliminated.

The purpose for every word must be to make your winning record.

Say what needs to be said and stop!

Learn what needs to be said and what shouldn't be.

Our "How to Win in Court" course shows you what to say and what to leave un-said
