Tracing Statutory Language:

  • Research fees can be minimized by ordering only the bills that affected specific subdivisions or phrases of interest to you.
  • Changes to statutes can sometimes be determined by the annotations provided by Deering’s, Westlaw, and Lexis.
  • If annotations are not available, one strategy is to look at each chaptered law noted above to observe the changes. Another strategy is to retain us to trace your language and report our findings back to you.
