Working in different law offices has given me a wide variety of writing techniques. I have studied and applied different writing styles including researching skills for classes at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan; complaint drafting and jury selection questionnaires in the Kings County District Attorney's Office in Brooklyn, New York; and settlement demands, complaints, answers, and other various motions at my current position at Underwood Law Offices in Huntington, West Virginia.
I feel that experience is the best teacher and it can be obtained through practice in writing exercises coupled with detailed feedback. Many people cringe at the thought of reading legal documents, which may often be justified due to an abundance of confusing language. With an understanding of how to convey thoughts in a clear but detailed manner, any student will be able to enhance their ability to address legal issues and express their ideas effectively.
