Paragraph Text Alignment – Justified or Not Justified?

Many law firms mandate a standard for justified paragraphs in a pleading. Other firms leave to the individual legal practitioner:


You can change text alignment to Justify for all paragraphs in the body of a pleading (paragraphs below the caption), using various features in Microsoft Word including: Alignment buttons, Format Painter, and Modify Styles.

However these approaches can be time consuming and tedious. An alternative is the CalPleadings Toolbar, which contains several built-in features for quick paragraph justification. Download a free trial of CalPleadings.
