Plain English Writing

Lawyers are famous for writing in “Legalese” - legal jargon that their clients can’t understand.

After years of academic writing at University, it’s very common for professionals to use complex constructions that obscure the meaning they want to convey. Even if you never use a Latin phrase; even if you think your writing is crystal-clear, there’s probably a lot you could do to make it even easier for your clients to absorb.

Clear written communication contributes to good service, helps you retain your clients and increases the likelihood of referrals and recommendations.
