Legal AnalysisLegal Documents for Use in Court
Your pleadings and briefs are arguably the most important communications you will have with the court. These may provide you with your only chance to persuade the court. After all, even with oral argument, the court needs to understand your arguments and be on your side from the start. Further, if your case is at the dispositive stage, your written filings can be the difference between winning and losing.
You may have significant experience in trial practice and may be fully prepared for oral argument. However, you may not have the experience or skill set to prepare well-researched, persuasive arguments in writing. Alternatively, you may simply be too busy.
Fortunately, our team is made up of tireless and fastidious legal writers who can prepare compelling, well-researched, and expertly crafted pleadings and briefs that will convey your arguments clearly and convincingly. We love to dig into complex issues, swim deep in the law and formulate the most persuasive application of that law to the facts as is possible.
We can provide assistance in formulating, preparing, or revising everything from simple trial court pleadings – including claims, defences, motions and affidavits, to complex appellate briefs.
The scope of our legal writing assistance could range from a light touch to chief responsibility. For instance, your brief or pleading may just need review by another trained eye before being filed. In such a case, we can edit and improve your written product—focusing on organization, structure, persuasion, rule compliance, and clarity. We can also be involved earlier in the process and be principally responsible for writing your brief or pleading. In either case, we promise to assist you to put your best argument forward and will collaborate as much or as little as you request.
