Lawyers from the U.S., Working for Lawyers in the U.S.
Legal Writing Services takes pride in being a unique Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) firm. Based in Israel, under the hands-on leadership and guidance of the firm’s founder and president, Gershon Ben-Peretz, we provide the highest quality legal support services to the smallest of U.S. law firms; at fair and modest “business to business” rates. Gershon and every member of our legal team, have decades of legal practice experience; and so have been in our client’s positions. We understand the day to day business of the legal practitioner, and are sensitive and caring to our client’s needs, concerns, and budgets.
The lawyers on our staff have recently relocated to Israel, after practicing law for between 15 to 30 years in the United States. Trial and appellate lawyers in various jurisdictions, our experienced staff has either owned, partnered, or been associated with, civil and criminal private practices. Gershon’s legal background, extensive years of experience, wisdom, networking, and communications skills, have enabled him to create a cohesive and efficient team of legal experts; ready to assist you. Our business model is so unique, new, and creative, there is no real “industry standard title” to describe the precise nature of our business. Though not a standard title, much of what we do is to “ghost write” legal documents for our client’s use; as well as providing thorough and exact legal research and memorandum of law.
We are proud to announce that we specialize in preparing appellate briefs for cases pending in practically every U.S. State and Federal Court; Our primary focus is on criminal appeals.
There are criminal defense firms that rely on us to write all their appeals; because they’ve evaluated their practice and found it more economical for for us to do so. Others send us their appeals because they are just too busy with other matters; some because they would be losing money (the defendant having a most limited budget after paying for the trial); and some just hate writing appeals. Whatever your situation may be, we invite lawyers to contact us and request a free phone consultation and case evaluation with Gershon. He will will help you evaluate your situation; discuss fees; and answer all your questions. You will then be better equipped to make an informed decision on how to handle the case. This is especially useful to those law firms who have never used an outsourcing service.
When an appeal is from an adverse final judgement after trial, we prepare the appellant’s brief using a unique but rather simple (flow-charted) dynamic process that Gershon first designed in law school, some 30 years ago. The core of the process is a scheduled team approach; with set standards, individual and team responsibilities, timetables, and in-place quality assurance checks and protocols. The dynamic aspects evolve with advances in available technology, and segments modified by Gershon regarding the certain case particulars, client interaction, and our outsourcing environment, .The very first technological advance was when the typewriter was replaced with a personal computer! Gershon designs a new process for every new appeal. This assists us in operating with maximum efficiency, staying on schedule, and keeping our fees as low as possible.
Our firm provides the same caliber of lawyers that our clients would otherwise hire in-house. However, because our overhead expenses in Israel are more moderate than those in the U.S., we pass these savings to our clients. We offer you cost-effective legal services, and assistance in working on you on your expanding caseload Gershon Ben-Peretz is a “nontraditional traditionalist”; setting and maintaining the highest standards; requiring perfection in all we do. When a new case is accepted, he conducts a thorough analysis, in order to match the work to our lawyers best suited for each particular task. Gershon then guides and manages his specially assigned teams, while working closely with our client; in a pre-agreed, scheduled manner. We strive to emulate each client’s own or preferred style, flavor, and technique. Gershon reviews and adds his finishing touches to the final draft of each document, making sure it is a work of art that’s a pleasure to read, and delivered to the client on or before schedule. This is the final segment of our quality control procedures, designed to assure total client satisfaction.
We love what we do. We take pride in presenting a finished product, that our client can be proud of.

Gershon Ben-Peretz founded Legal Writing Services with the primary goal of providing work for “the cream of the crop” American lawyers who recently emigrated to Israel after many successful years of (U.S.) legal practice. They have long since passed the stage of being a lawyer by profession; to being a lawyer by nature. This natural guardian of our profession is perfectly suited to being an outsourcing provider; and truly loves every minute. Gershon loves every minute working with them. He has always been our president and managing director; and is directly involved with every case we handle. Gershon is our sole liaison with every client, always maintaining and encouraging a regular and open line of communication. Because of his dedication to our client’s complete satisfaction, no work leaves our offices without Gershon’s thorough review and approval. However, we do not consider a job to be completed , just because the work was submitted to the client. Work is considered completed only when the client is 100% satisfied.
Prior to relocating to Israel, he was the founder and senior managing partner of a rather “small” (now replaced by the word “boutique”), private, multistate law practice: based in Miami, Florida. Gershon was a trial lawyer; specializing in the litigation and appeals of criminal cases in U.S. Federal and State Courts. He defended approximately 100 major jury trials in U.S. District Courts; and wrote and argued scores of appeals in U.S. Circuit Courts. His civil cases were mostly transactional in nature (i.e. Intellectual Property, Commercial, and Real-Estate); and disputes involving these matters (including Marital and Family law cases), were tried in State Court. In addition to being a practicing attorney, Gershon was a contributing author and managing editor of a series of textbooks for the legal practitioner. Early in his career, he took special delight in teaching graduate level courses in law and professional practice management, as an adjunct professor.
If from this, you gather that Gershon loves the law, you are 100% correct; but only partially so. He also loves living in Israel, loves our firm, and gratefully appreciates every client. The 4 parts are mutually non-exclusive; and each enables the whole. All of us at LWS gratefully appreciate each and every client, for being that one crucial component. Our clients enable Gershon, to provide us with gainful employment for fair compensation (paid on time), located in a very nice part of Jerusalem, in an all English speaking environment, being women and men in our middle-ages, working in a field that we love and have been in for most our lives,
Gershon’s open-door policy applies to our legal staff as well. He delights in mentoring everyone.. For example, when we write a criminal appellate brief, it is common for a staff member to request a brainstorming session, regarding a way to tackle a seemingly impossible argument for an issue on appeal. There is always someone who strokes a bit of Gershon’s ego, by making sure to tell him that this is true forte. Gershon invariably finds a Constitutional basis to argue the issue. He then reminds the throng that this is his fortissimo; and they may now assemble the argument; “which will fall into play easier than a 25 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle”. To the uninitiated, this may sound like silly gloating; but when the magical moment often happens, even the Founding Fathers are heard to sigh in relief. Please note that Gershon is better able to explain this phenomenon, so I ask that you not shoot the messenger…
