Due to increased client demand for these services, we recently introduced a new offering, Writing & Editing for the Legal Profession.
How did you start working with clients in the legal profession?
In 2018, a lawyer from the Ottawa area came to us seeking help to prepare his documents for an internal promotion. We assisted him with revising and editing his resume and cover letter. He achieved his goal.
After he had a positive experience working with us, subsequent referrals followed.
What kinds of clients do you assist?
During the past three years, we have worked with nearly 30 members of the legal profession, including law students, lawyers, legal professors and judicial officials.
The fall of 2020/winter of 2021 was our busiest season to date. We provided writing and editing services for clients for the following documents:
- Law school applications
- Post-secondary essays
- Resumes and cover letters for law students seeking articling positions or field-related employment
- Lawyers writing articles for legal publications and/or charitable organizations.
- Professionals from other fields applying for a Justice of the Peace Application to the Ontario Court of Justice
- Lawyers applying for judicial appointments in the Ontario Court or Justice and the Superior Court of Justice
What results have your clients achieved?
While some of our most recent clients are waiting for results from judicial applications, several law students have told us that they have received several job interviews, and two lawyers seeking new positions earned interviews for new roles.
A third-year law student called to tell us that she was thrilled to receive five job interviews!
We also assisted four students with applications for law school; they all received offers of admission.
One of our clients recommended that we begin formally advertising these services on our website after helping them write a judicial application. She told Julie, our Owner, “after all the advice you gave me about promoting myself, it’s my turn to tell you that you should do the same!” If our client is reading this, we are grateful for her suggestion.
We look forward to assisting more clients with writing and editing services in the legal profession in the future.
