The Unsung Skill: Legal Research and Writing

October 15, 2015 | Ty Czapla


Many clients don't consider their attorneys' legal research and writing background. But make no mistake about it, even great trial attorneys struggle with writing and research. Why? Well, because legal writing and research are unique and demanding skills that require intensive practice to perfect. Many attorneys don't get sufficient practice given all the demands placed on them. Or they simply don't possess the skills to be a great technical writer in the first place.

I started my career as a research and writing attorney for Atlas Legal Research, out of Dallas, TX. There, I wrote dozens of motions, appellate briefs and advisory memos. I saved many clients from protracted litigation and obtained favorable judgments in cases involving custody, car accidents, employment discrimination, breaches of contract, and more.

Oral advocacy is important, but so is written advocacy and I believe I have a leg up on the competition in this regard.
