If you ever find yourself getting sick of looking at your work product and starting to do something rash such as throwing your hands up and just turning it in at that moment, pull yourself up short. Give it a good dramatic reading. Out loud. You will still find some slips and rough patches—and you will be glad you did. Better that you find the problems than your readers do. Learn the lesson that mutilating and reworking your own first drafts actually builds your ego as a writer and editor.
Depending on whether or not a fee agreement has already been signed (or a retainer) your letters length and style will be dictated by a number of factors, including the subject and the sophistication of your client. Be cognizant of your clients ability to understand. Is your client requesting a demand letter from someone who injured him in a car crash? In PI cases, the length of the letter may be as much a function of whether or not the defendant has insurance (i.e., money).
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.”
