legal writing, CLE training; workshops in-house seminars, coaching

Marilyn Bush LeLeiko helps improve legal writing skills through workshops, seminars, and one-on-one coaching.

“[P]artners . . . have already seen improvement in the writing of several associates. From the perspective of a managing partner, it is great to see this immediate return on our investment.”

William H. Kitchens, Esq., Managing Partner
Arnall Golden Gregory LLP (Atlanta)

CLE Workshops in Legal Writing and Editing

Marilyn conducts in-house CLE workshops in legal writing and editing at law firms and at corporate and government legal offices. A workshop or seminar can be included in your new lawyer orientation program or your annual retreat. Legal writing training programs for CLE associations are also available.

A lawyer herself, Marilyn understands the time pressures lawyers frequently face. Her group sessions—usually half-day sessions—will help your lawyers improve their writing and editing skills without taking too much time away from their work.

Client List

“The response of our attorneys to your recent presentation was uniformly positive. . . . [T]he written materials and graphic presentations were really top-notch.

The seminar was well-paced—fast enough to cover the abundant material, but slow enough at those points when some focus on an important point was needed. . . .

I especially liked the email tips—that's truly an overlooked area of writing. The entire presentation was well run and efficiently presented.”

Anthony J. Russo, Esq., Partner
Butler Pappas Weihmuller Katz Craig LLP (Tampa, FL)

“Excellent for overall writing, regardless of the type of law practiced. Most courses focus solely on litigation-oriented writings. This one did not, which is what made it useful.”

Deborah Giss Stalker, Esq. (JD 1989)
Associate General Counsel
ACE Insurance Company of North America (Philadelphia)

One-on-one Coaching

Some clients add one-on-one coaching as part of the workshop offered to their lawyers. One-on-one telephone coaching is also available. In these one-on-one sessions, Marilyn works on a lawyer’s own writing, focusing on specific problems and solutions.

“[P]articipants in the one-on-one sessions . . . found the targeted advice to be very helpful and they appreciated the freedom that one-on-one training brings to the instruction. . . .”

Rachel W. Jones, Manager of Professional Education and Training
Dickstein Shapiro Morin & Oshinsky LLP (Washington, DC)
