Welcome to The Legal Proofreader

legal proofreading

An international editing and copy writing service for legal, business, and engineering professionals.

Written text is a specific message conveyed to a specific audience. Proofreading is not simply an exercise in ensuring the use of correct grammar and punctuation; it is an exercise in message optimization and clarification. The right proofreader and editor will clean a document—and strengthen it. The Legal Proofreader offers specific expertise for specific professional needs that other generalized proofreading services cannot adequately provide.

This is vital in legal pleadings, briefs, and papers translated into English from other languages, as well as technical engineering and other documentation. The Legal Proofreader offers a variety of levels of service, from basic proofreading to complete editing and rewriting and original copy writing and ghost-blogging, depending on a client’s individual project needs.

With nearly 10 years of professional legal practice and over 20 years of writing and editing experience, as well as academic and popular journalism, John Hilla can double-check your work, editing as necessary, or offer complete editing to ensure that your reader gets the right point—and only the right point.
