a specialist legal knowledge
Attention to detail is vital in all written communications, but this is especially true with legal content. Therefore, knowledge of the law and legal terminology is essential for legal proofreading. One common error that frequently appears in legal documents is the inconsistent and incorrect use of defined terms.
Many websites offering legal proofreading are just a business name, so you have no idea who is editing your document and if they are legally qualified or indeed familiar with legal terminology. As well as being a qualified solicitor, I am a trained, professional proofreader and editor.
