As a legal copywriter, I translate legal terminology into copy that is accessible to the general reader.

My experience in writing a wide range of documents for law firms means that I understand legal jargon and am very confident writing legal copy for different audiences.

I really enjoy this work and am very happy to discuss any legal copywriting – please contact me to discuss your requirements!
