Are you looking to specifically how to structure the brief or how to write a well written brief?

Writing the Winning Brief is a good overall writing guide.

As another lawyer, I hope you don't write legal documents the same way you comment.

  • Improper use of capitalized words (e.g., "[b]attery," "[t]ort," and "[n]egligence"),

  • Unnecessary use of legalese (e.g., "one," "said individual"),

  • Improper use of "anyone" when you meant "any one,"

  • Failure to properly use commas,

  • Excessive use of "and" following semicolons,

  • The use of gender-specific pronouns, etc.

    They're all giving me a panic attack for the legal profession.

    Fortunately, there are some very simple solutions for you:

  • Get a membership here and start looking up questions when you have them. You might not realize it, but almost all of your sentences involve mistakes. So look them up!

  • Buy and read this book, this book, and this book.

    You have a lot of work to do, but it'll be worth it when people start actually reading your briefs.
