Arthur F. is an appellate litigator with extensive experience drafting briefs, memoranda, affidavits, and Congressional testimony, along with a wide range of other documents including articles for both professional and public consumption. After graduating from law school, he spent four years at the NLRB briefing and arguing cases in the U.S. Courts of Appeals, then joined the Public Citizen Litigation Group where, for the next eighteen years, he handled numerous cases in federal district and circuit courts, before joining a small firm where he has continued his public interest practice. As a sideline, he has tutored gifted and talented high school students to improve their writing skills.

In addition to being a proponent of correct grammar, sentence structure, and clear and concise exposition, Arthur focuses on organization and effective presentation of facts, as well as relevant legal principles. While in law school, students focus almost exclusively on legal principles. However, once they leave their ivory towers, they typically discover that ninety percent of their time must be devoted to mastering their understanding of, and persuasively describing complex factual scenarios. Unfortunately, possession of a law degree does not guarantee even basic competence, much less success, at effective writing. Arthur can assist law students, young lawyers, and also lay professionals, to master this craft.

Arthur is a knowledgeable and patient tutor

During our sessions, Arthur has provided great pointers for legal writing through dissection of actual briefs – looking at the good and the bad. Also, we have analyzed both poorly and well written articles – looking for the essence of good writing. I still have a long way to go to master writing. In support, Arthur has provided handouts with tips and suggestions, and recommended various articles to read. He is great tutor and mentor - besides being an accomplished attorney.

Great and reliable tutor!

Arthur helped me with my personal statement for law school this past winter. Although our interaction was all via email (I requested it to be this way given my time constraint), he was very easy to reach. He gave me great feedback and would return my essay with his edits in a timely fashion. He also had a great attitude and gave me encouragement during the stressful application process. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor!
