Legal Drafting

ABOUT LEGAL DRAFTING: Correctly drafted legal documents, such as an Affidavit or Consent Orders can be instrumental to the quick and desirable resolution of your matter. Too often, people without experience in legal drafting will include unnecessary or inappropriate information in their legal documents, instead of focusing on facts relevant to their matter.  Well written and accurate documents supporting your matter will give the court the best possible view of your position.

Legal Drafting – Why You Need Correctly Drafted Court Documents

Correctly drafted court documents can be instrumental to the quick and desirable resolution of your matter. Many of the court forms are self-explanatory, and the court’s websites provide brief instructions on filling out many forms. However, the documents you file are of critical importance. Your Affidavit or Consent Orders you are seeking from the court are the judge’s first exposure to your matter.  In the words of a Federal Circuit Court judge, His Honour Judge Jarrett –

The impact of a well drawn affidavit is your first attempt at advocacy and the impact of that can’t be underestimated.

Too often, people without experience in legal drafting will include unnecessary or inappropriate information in their court documents instead of focusing on facts relevant to their matter.

Well written and accurate documents supporting your matter will give the court the best possible view of your position. This will then make any court appearance easier for you and prevent any unnecessary delays during the court process.  It will also prevent your Consent Orders being returned to you because they aren’t drafted correctly.

We know what facts and information best supports your case and will ensure all the important and relevant information you provide to us is included to support your matter.

It will save you money and time to have The Legal Drafter draft your court documents for you. When you have well prepared court documents your matter will run more efficiently.
