How to Draft a Demand Letter [Video]

Most legal disputes begin with a simple document that has an even simpler name:  a demand letter.

What is a demand letter, you say?  A demand letter is basically a letter summing up a disputed legal issue, recounting the facts leading up to the dispute, explaining how the dispute caused damage, and asking for a specific outcome.

Lawyers and law firms typically send out demand letters as the first “shot across the bow” at the start of a lawsuit or (hopefully) to avoid a lawsuit entirely.

However, you don’t have to be a lawyer to write a demand letter. You can use a well-crafted demand letter to complain to a restaurant about a bad meal, ask a neighbor to cut back an encroaching tree, or demand payment from a business customer or client.

A well-crafted demand letter can actually avoid litigation by helping two parties that disagree over a contested point to come to agreement over a resolution.

So I put together a video outlining how to draft a demand letter.

Check out the video below and let us hear it in the comments as to what you thought, or if you have any follow up questions.
