Effective Email Programs

Nearly a decade ago, when I was a mid-level associate at a large law firm, I had the pleasure of taking your Writing Workshop for Lawyers. I have used the advice you imparted that day in nearly every brief or memo or letter I have written…

A few years ago, I joined the Department of Justice. My reviewers were not only pleased with my writing style, they asked if I had materials that would help them write more effectively. I pulled your blue notebook off my shelf and gladly shared with them (along with a few of your mantras).

When I recently learned that Justice was offering a one-day writing workshop for lawyers, I eagerly signed up, hoping to brush up on my skills. Until I walked into the room, I had no idea that you were teaching the course. Your course is as good as I had remembered; your advice is as useful as it ever was.

Thank you for the phenomenal presentation you delivered at our Firm . . . [T]he workshop was very well-received, not only in person here in our Syracuse office, but across the Firm’s other offices by videoconference as well. I was particularly impressed with your seamless integration of the participants from other offices into the workshop.
