Ross’s Point Made: How to Write Like the Nation’s Top Advocates is an Amazon bestseller that reviewers have praised as a “tour de force” and “a must for the library of veteran litigators.” Ross also wrote Point Taken: How to Write Like the World’s Greatest Judges, which Court Review called “the best book . . . by far . . . about judicial writing.” He coauthored Deal Struck: The World’s Best Drafting Tips with Gary Karl and created the online contracts editor ContractCatch.
Ross’s newest product, BriefCatch, is a first-of-its-kind editing add-in. Its devoted users include lawyers, firms, judges, and courts around the world. BriefCatch was named one of TechnoLawyer’s Top 10 Legal Tech Products of the year.
An active member of the bar and a former attorney at a top firm, Ross has also worked as a translator, professional musician, and award-winning journalist. Slate called his investigative reporting about Fannie Mae “totally brilliant and prescient,” and Pulitzer Prize winner Gretchen Morgenson wrote that his article “made even the most jaded Washingtonian take note.”
For the past 6 years, Ross has been invited to train all new federal judges, and he has presented at many other judicial conferences as well. He has also addressed many international conferences, including ATD, NALP, PDC, PDI, ACLEA, IADC, the Appellate Judges Education Institute, and the ABA’s Corporate Counsel Summit.
