Megan Boyd

Read Full Review

“I cannot say enough good things about BriefCatch. Not only is it easily the most reasonably priced tool in the legal space, it is easily the most useful add-on available. It is the rare piece of software that reflects a thoughtful and complete focus on its user in every line of code.

Remy Green

Lawyer and Professor

“BriefCatch is like having a second set of eyes built into your computer. And because it explains its suggestions, you’ll soon find yourself preemptively correcting things like passive voice or flat verbs before you even run a program. Far and away the most useful software for legal writing I have ever used.

Ben Reese

Appellate Lawyer

“BriefCatch is a game-changer for legal writers at all levels. For new lawyers, it's a patient writing instructor, pointing out common problems and demonstrating how to fix them. For experienced lawyers and judges, it's a thoughtful copy editor, challenging you to reconsider flowery words and convoluted sentences. For everyone, it's an eagle-eyed proofreader, spotting typos and other gremlins you're likely to miss.”

Caroline Mandell
