PUNCTIATION AND GRAMMAR

Why do so many lawyers get it wrong?

Why don't lawyers use the final serial comma. For instance, in the phrase "negotiation, preparation, execution and delivery", why is there no comma after execution?

Why can't lawyers get the difference between which and that straight - especially considering that one is limiting and one is not?

KATRINA

I'm not in one of those multi-office 500-lawyer firms, but a smaller 60 person operation in the upper southeast. My firm is matching and doubling all contributions of the attorneys and staff. How about yours?
