About Ross Guberman

Ross Guberman is the president of Legal Writing Pro LLC, a training and consulting firm. From Alaska and Hawaii to Paris and Hong Kong, he has conducted more than a thousand programs on three continents for prominent law firms, federal judges, and dozens of agencies and associations.

Ross is also a Professorial Lecturer in Law at the George Washington University Law School, where he teaches a seminar on drafting and writing strategy.

Ross holds degrees from Yale, the Sorbonne, and the University of Chicago Law School.

Ross is the author of Point Made: How to Write Like the Nation’s Top Advocates, an Amazon bestseller that reviewers have praised as a “tour de force,” “a must for the library of veteran litigators,” and “an indispensable tool” filled with “practical, trenchant advice.” The first edition has sold 30,000 copies, and the book was nominated for Scribes Book Award for the best legal book of 2011. Ross’s next books are Point Taken: How to Write Like the World’s Greatest Judges and a guide to the world’s best contract-drafting tips.

An active member of the bar, Ross is also a former professional musician, translator, and award-winning journalist. After the federal takeover of Fannie Mae, Slate magazine called his 2002 article about the company “totally brilliant and prescient.” In her bestseller Reckless Endangerment, New York Times business columnist Gretchen Morgenson wrote that “the article was groundbreaking and made even the most jaded Washingtonian take note.”

Ross has commented on business, law, writing, training, and lawyer development for newspapers, radio stations, and television networks. He has also addressed several major international conferences, including the American Society of Training and Development, NALP’s Annual Education Conference, the Professional Development Consortium, the Professional Development Institute, and the Association for Continuing Legal Education.

The American Society for Training & Development has awarded Ross its Certified Professional in Learning and Performance™ credential for passing a rigorous eight-part test and for creating a standardized writing assessment that he has since administered to more than a thousand lawyers.

A Minnesota native, Ross lives with his wife and two children outside Washington, DC. Family travel has taken them everywhere from Australia to Zambia.
