01. THE NEED
My client is a physician who reviews medical reports, legal documents and statements to provide a medical opinion. The opinion is a 5,000-word report presented by the legal team in front of a judge.
02. THE WORK
The original reports are written in formal legal language and medical jargon. Although the audience is a judge who fully understands legal text, plain English makes the reports easier to digest.
Removing passive voice
Reformatting for consistency and readability
Simplifying long and overly complex sentences
03. THE RESULT
Concise, scannable, and easy-to-read medical opinions that are court-ready. Even in the legal world, plain English is better. Plain English doesn’t mean dumbed-down. It’s a preferred writing style that is more accessible and easier to understand.
