Ross Guberman is the founder and president of Legal Writing Pro, an advanced legal-writing training and consulting firm. He conducts hundreds of programs a year for many of the world's largest and most prestigious law firms and for dozens of state and federal agencies and bar associations.
Ross is also a Professorial Lecturer in Law at The George Washington University Law School, where he teaches an advanced seminar on drafting and writing strategy.
He holds degrees from Yale, the Sorbonne, and The University of Chicago Law School, where he was Articles Editor of The University of Chicago Legal Forum.
In early 2011, Oxford University Press published Ross's Point Made: How to Write Like the Nation's Top Advocates, which 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."
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 called his 2002 investigation of the company "brilliant and prescient."
He has commented on business, law, writing, and lawyer development for major newspapers, radio stations, and television networks, and he also addressed several major international conferences.
The American Society for Training & Development has awarded Ross its Certified Professional in Learning and PerformanceT credential for passing an eight-part test and submitting his standardized writing assessment.
A Minnesota native, Ross lives with his wife and two children outside Washington, DC.
