You can keep improving

"[A]ttorneys need to consult the same dictionaries and stylebooks that other professional writers and editors use." Ronald L. Goldfarb & James C. Raymond, Clear Understandings: A Guide to Legal Writing 55–56 (West 1982).

For most lawyers, law-school legal-writing training was just adequate. For better legal writing, you’ll have to train yourself throughout your career. You can do that by--
  • including legal writing as a regular part of your continuing legal education,
  • reading and consulting the best sources on legal writing, and
  • promoting better legal writing at your law office and in your practice.
