If you are writing the letter to the defendant personally, then typical demand letters tend to be short and sweet. But if the letter is being written to the insurance adjuster, most demand letters tend to go a little longer -- about four to five pages, depending on the facts and the causes of action claimed. In letters to insurance companies, its common to include case law and statutes.
A common shortcoming of green or hurried researchers, especially when a project is slightly overdue, is to turn in an interim draft in the hope of getting preliminary feedback. That can be ruinous. What busy supervisor wants to read serial drafts? Besides, you should never turn in tentative work—its better to be a little late than wrong. That goes for turning in projects to impatient clients as well. But keep your supervisor (and, if warranted, your client) updated on the status of your work.
The structure is important, Hill says. “In order for our logical syllogism or rule-based reasoning to work, the legal writer needs to prove or provide all of the rules and sub-rules and any exceptions, along with any case exceptions before applying the law to the facts of your case and making any comparisons to precedent.” Judges and other legal readers do not like surprises, she says. “They do not want you to include new law in the application section or any exceptions to the rule after you start applying that rule to your facts. So this form will give the reader comfort and confidence.”
