What people are saying about Point Made

“The only way to teach students how to be effective legal writers is to immerse them in as much outstanding legal writing as possible. ... [Point Made] supplies an indispensable tool to those engaged in the craft of making excellent lawyers.”
– Dan Kahan, Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Law, Yale Law School

“Effective advocacy consists of a skillful blend of clear language and a sense of dramatic structure. Guberman's exemplars demonstrate again and again how to transform an otherwise ordinary case into a morality tale with a happy ending.”
– Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson

“I love this book and recommend it for everyone. Ross Guberman's bag of tricks will spiff up your writing. He shares 50 techniques, and then-the fun part-he offers choice nuggets to show you how the hot shots pull it off.”
– Ronald Marmer, Chair-Elect, ABA Section on Litigation; Partner, Jenner & Block

“[L]awyers and legal writers at all stages of their careers can cull from Guberman’s advice valuable lessons that are easy to remember and simple to apply. For these reasons, Point Made would make an excellent addition to any law school, law firm, court, or academic library collection.”
– Julie Graves Krishnaswami, Law Library Journal

“I am loathe to come across so effusive in my praise of the book, as to appear biased. But I can't help but highly recommend the book, it's that good. If you want to improve your legal writing, pick up a copy of Point Made.”
– Keith Lee, An Associate's Mind

“Guberman has assembled example after example of creative, clever, clear, common-sense legal writing. He's compiled in one book the great writing that will cause a legal writer to sigh, 'I wish I'd written that.' But he did not stop there. Guberman has written a useable handbook that will aid the writer in crafting similar envy worthy moments of argument.”
– Wendy McGuire Coats, Appellate Issues Spring 2012, ABA

“Point Made is writing-nerd nirvana...It instantly won a place on my short list of favorite legal-writing books.”
– Jay O'Keeffe, DeNovo: A Virginia Appellate Law Blog

“Entertaining and informative...a smart approach to writing persuasive legal briefs. Rather than lecturing the reader about what to do, Point Made shows you how the headline lawyers do it.”
– Steven R. Merican, Illinois

[Guberman] doesn't just tell you what to do: he shows you...I learned a lot from reading Ross's book; I think you will too."
– Raymond Ward, The (new) legal writer
