I wrote an article last year about outsourced legal writing, and, in particular, about one legal writing company, BriefMasters. For that story, I interviewed BriefMasters’ co-founder, Adam E. Quarles, and subsequently exchanged e-mails with him on various occasions. Thus, it was with sadness that I learned of Adam’s death June 5 at the young age of 40 years, two days. The former BriefMasters Web site appears to be defunct, but a Google cache of the home page announces Adam’s death and indicates that the company will most likely be dissolved.
