In personal experience, I have noticed a tendency for some boutique firms to write long and prolix letters. This, unfortunately, is part of the whole "boutique" experience. That is, there is a belief that if a client is going to a specific firm to deal with a specific matter, they expect legal briefs and letters from law firms to recite chapter and verse and the entirety of the practice guides. Cynically, this means billable hours. But ethical attorneys should steer away from that. Most likely, a client will be coming to you, hat in hand, simply looking for way to fix his problem. And sometimes a single page can do the trick. Forget the useless fluff.
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.”
YVerbosity makes your writing seem cluttered and underthought. Learn to delete every surplus word. For example, general consensus of opinion is doubly redundant: A consensus relates only to opinions, and a consensus is general by its very nature. You can replace the phrase a number of with several or many. And in order to typically has two words too many—to can do the work alone. So instead of in order to determine damages, write to determine damages.
