“PerfectIt can help a lawyer focus on editing for substance and meaning. It’s difficult to edit your own documents – take all the help you can get!”
"PerfectIt’s American Legal Style programmed thousands of common errors and hard-to-remember rules [including those] based upon The Bluebook, Black’s Law Dictionary, The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style and The Elements of Style."
PerfectIt’s legal checking was designed by lawyers for lawyers. It includes 13,000 legal-specific checks that only lawyers and trained legal editors would know to look for. No matter what kind of legal document you are working on, PerfectIt will save time and ensure your text is the best it can be.
Checking that citations meet Bluebook requirements for punctuation and spacing, accuracy of court and reporter names, and case name abbreviations is tedious. An incorrect citation can even lead you to the wrong authority. PerfectIt helps by finding errors and uniformly applying Bluebook rules throughout your document.
Lawyers use words differently. So built-in spelling- and grammar-checkers don’t catch most legal mistakes—and they can even introduce errors. PerfectIt can help. To create PerfectIt’s legal checking, we conducted numerous page-by-page reviews of the leading legal style guides and dictionaries, and programmed in the most common errors. We also used real world law practice experience to anticipate mistakes and recommend corrections.
Modern legal writing style dictates that legal documents should be clear, uncomplicated, and consistent. Leading style guides, such as The Red Book, the Elements of Style, and Bluebook, give us the rules. But they’re tough to apply under tight deadlines. PerfectIt pulls together leading guidance on legal writing so lawyers and staff can quickly apply the rules, style, guidelines, and writing techniques expected of them.
Inconsistencies introduce risk and invite disputes. But keeping track of tiny details scattered throughout a long document is nearly impossible. PerfectIt can help. PerfectIt excels in the consistency checking category. It is the only program for lawyers that allows you to check internal consistency based on actual use and enforce external style rules.
Terms of art are tough to get right. It’s easy to transpose letters, make mistakes about hyphens, or otherwise mangle legal words and phrases. Most mistakes simply make the drafter seem careless, but some mistakes can change meaning. Lawyers don’t have time to consult Black’s Law Dictionary for every word. PerfectIt helps to find and correct the most common errors.
Defined terms set the factual stage for, and give practical meaning to, legal documents. And inconsistent capitalization of defined terms can lead to confusion and introduce risk. These errors are tough to spot in long documents. PerfectIt helps ensure consistency by showing you every instance of each defined term in context—and letting you decide what’s right.
