Legal Writing

When a lawyer must include one or more issue statements in a brief, either for purposes of clarity or because required by court rule, and the lawyer has trouble formulating a succinct issue statement that correctly identifies the parties and the critical facts necessary to an understanding of the statement, where can the attorney find a resource to help him write a clear, succinct issue statement that is easily understood by the reader?

As for an answer to the question itself, this looks like a pretty darn good place to start.
