Law students: Do you need help with your first-year writing assignments? Can't figure out how to hack the "office memo"? Flummoxed by the mysteries of IRAC and FHR in breaking down judicial decisions? Unclear about the difference in approach between (i) a hypothetical memo to a law firm partner, advising him on the current state of the law on some discrete issue, and (ii) a brief to an appellate panel, arguing that the trial court below misapplied that law?

Contact Gram at firstname.lastname@example.org. I graduated from an elite liberal arts college and a top 10 law school. I was a corporate bankruptcy lawyer and litigator for nearly two decades, but no longer practice law.
I will proofread and edit your written work, paying attention to organization, sentence structure, grammar and word choices. I fix the writing problems common to most first-year law students. (Here's one: the passive voice is not to be used by you.) I'll turn your rough draft into a polished, well-reasoned memo, ready for you to submit to your professor.
Price? Well, as you will be telling your own clients soon enough, "you get what you pay for." I'm not cheap, but my skill, close attention to detail and quick turnaround time are worth the cost. (No, I don't bill by the hour.) You'll learn something about how to write well -- as a lawyer, or just as a human being, trying to communicate with the other humans. And I keep all client contact strictly confidential. (Once a lawyer, always a lawyer.)
So if first-year law school writing assignments (or longer papers in second- and third-year electives) are driving you to distraction or worse, I can help. Please e-mail me (at email@example.com) with your name, contact info and a short description of the project (including the precise due date), and I'll get back to you promptly. Thanks!
