Speaking of Jim McElhaney: Cross-Examination.

See his classic ABA Journal article "It's All About You". Learn more about something hard. Excerpt:

Stop trying to talk like lawyers.

The problem with legalese is that it does not command instant understanding by ordinary people. That means it automatically makes us poor communicators; and communicating is what we're supposed to be doing for a living. It's a bad habit that most lawyers never shake. So start talking like real people again now.
