Writing like a lawyer

After having to write a Cease and Desist letter recently, and dealing with the response from the not-so-happy recipient, I recalled the letter at this link. It’s a great piece of writing, and something that lawyers could get away with in the 1970’s. I’m not sure it would fly these days. Someone might take offense and sue you for emotional harm. But it’s worth remembering the power of a short, to-the-point letter.
